PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — The president of West Virginia University at Parkersburg says she isn't renewing her contract with the school.

Officials said Monday that after 10 years as the head of the university, Marie Foster Gnage won't renew her contract after June 30.

The school's board is planning to name an interim president and begin a nationwide search for Gnage's replacement.

Gnage became the first female and the first African-American president of WVU Parkersburg in 2004. She also is the second-longest serving president for WVU Parkersburg.

During her tenure the school expanded its main campus, increased the number of bachelor degree programs offered and reached record enrollment numbers.
