DAHLONEGA, Ga. (AP) — University of North Georgia President Bonita Jacobs, the school's first woman to hold the position, said she plans to retire in June. In a news release Monday, Jacobs said she announced her plans to 'ensure the Board of Regents has ample time to select UNG's next president and to provide for a stable transition over this next year as we celebrate North Georgia's sesquicentennial — our 150th anniversary.' Jacobs was appointed president of then-North Georgia College & State University in July 2011.
