Faulkner University president to retire next year
After nearly three decades at the helm, Faulkner University’s longtime president will retire next year.
Billy D. Hilyer, the top administrator for the Christian university in Montgomery, Ala., for 28 years, revealed the decision today.
A news release from Faulkner provides more details:
In a letter to the university’s board of trustees announcing his retirement plans, Hilyer gave credit to past and current board members and to employees for Faulkner’s growth during his tenure as president.
“I am grateful for our wonderful faculty and staff,” Hilyer said. “For years I have received much too much credit, credit that was due the faculty. Much of the progress we have enjoyed through the years is the result of their hard work, often under difficult circumstances, their professionalism and good spirit.”
Faulkner is associated with Churches of Christ.
