  • TUSKEGEE, Ala. (AP) — Gilbert Rochon has resigned as president of Tuskegee University after three years on the job.

    The Tuskegee board of trustees announced Saturday that Rochon offered his resignation during a board meeting, and the board accepted. The resignation was effective immediately.

    The board said Tuskegee alumnus Matthew Jenkins will serve as acting president. He’s retired from a veterinary practice in Compton. Calif., and is chairman of SDD Enterprises, a real estate investment and property management firm that operates in eight states. His foundation has been a major donor to Tuskegee.

    The board chairman, retired Maj. Gen. Charles Williams, said the board will conduct a national search for a new president.
