Missouri S&T Chancellor Carney to retire

Jan 26, 2011

At the conclusion of his State of the University Address today, Missouri University of Science and Technology Chancellor John F. (Jack) Carney III announced his plans to retire.

A press release from the university shared a portion of his announcement:

Paideia Academy, which had planned to open its school year the day after Labor Day despite having lost its charter to operate, won't be opening after all.

Fred Robinson, president of the school's board, said Thursday that an effort to secure financing for the school had not worked out, so it would not be accepting students, at least for now. He said the decision was made earlier this week.

"The deal we were working on didn't work," Robinson said, declining to give further details. "The deal we were working on fell through."
