CHARLESTON, S.C. — The president of South Carolina’s military college says he’ll retire next summer.

Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. John Rosa said Wednesday that he wants to stay on as president through the next academic year at The Citadel so he can help the school celebrate its 175th anniversary.

Rosa said in a statement he will step down on June 30, 2018 after serving 12 years at his alma mater. A national search will begin soon for The Citadel’s 20th president.

Rosa says he is proudest that the incoming freshman class is the most diverse ever at The Citadel, which celebrated 50 years of admitting Blacks and 20 years of admitting woman last year. The freshman class is also the biggest at the school since 1961.

The Citadel has about 2,350 cadets.
