(Richmond, VA) – As reported in the Richmond Times-Dispatch on January 9, J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College President Gary L. Rhodes announced Tuesday that he will retire Sept. 1 after more than 15 years at the college.

The Virginia Community College System will soon launch a nationwide search for Rhodes’ successor, a college spokesman said. With 17,000 students on three campuses, Reynolds is the third-largest college in terms of enrollment in the Virginia Community College System.

Stephen E. Baril, chairman of the Reynolds college board for the past three years, called himself “a big fan of Gary Rhodes,” and said, “If you went to a dictionary and looked up ‘nice guy’ there would be a picture of Gary Rhodes.”
