ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- Robert Huddleston is stepping down as president of Dixie State College.
Huddleston has held the post for nearly 12 years. He announced yesterday that he's leaving. He will stay on until June to allow the school to find a replacement.
Huddleston is the longest serving president of Utah's state colleges and universities.
Huddleston plans to take a one-year sabbatical and will even go back to school. He plans to enroll in Dixie State courses to brush up on the latest in accounting and technology and return to teaching full time at the college.
Huddleston says he hasn't taught full time since 1983 and it's time to return to his first love.
