Eileen Holden on Monday announced her retirement as president of Polk State College after more than 11 years in the position.
Holden, 61, announced her decision at a board of trustees meeting. She will leave in July after the board chooses a successor.
Holden’s tenure saw a number of new developments at the school, including its transition from Polk Community College, which opened in 1964 offering two-year associate’s degrees, to a four-year state college offering bachelor’s degrees in business, criminal justice, nursing, aerospace sciences and early childhood and elementary education. That happened in 2009.
