Frank Brogan, a onetime education wonder-boy in Florida, is quitting his job as chancellor of Pennsylvania’s state university system.
The resignation announcement, effective Sept. 1, was unexpected when made Monday afternoon, according to a story posted by philly.com, The Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News website:
“The chancellor of Pennsylvania’s state university system, which is about to undergo changes in the wake of financial and enrollment woes, will retire Sept. 1, a decision that was announced unexpectedly Monday afternoon.
Brogan, who served as lieutenant governor under former Gov. Jeb! Bush, rose through the education ranks, from an elementary school teacher to superintendent of Martin County Schools. Brogan, 63, was elected Florida’s education commissioner in 1994. He also served as president of Florida Atlantic University and chancellor of the State University System of Florida before leaving for the Keystone State job in 2013.
