MONTGOMERY — Mark Heinrich, chancellor of the State’s embattled community college system, has submitted his retirement and will step down from his job on April 1.
He will be replaced temporarily by the man at the center of the controversy.
Heinrich, who has served as the chancellor of the Alabama Community College System since 2012, delivered his notice of retirement to the board of trustees Wednesday.
He said he plans to retire because of a prolonged illness.
