President of Morris Brown College Steps Down

Samuel Jolley, who took over as president of Morris Brown College after the historically black institution lost its accreditation in 2002, has resigned his position. The college, which once had enrollments of 2,700 students and more than 100 faculty members, now has 55 students and nine faculty members. During his tenure Jolley had launched a $10 million capital campaign but only $1.2 million has been raised.
