SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A Colorado college’s top administrator is coming to New Mexico to serve as the newest president at St. John’s College.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (https://bit.ly/1HKPqFd) outgoing president Michael Peters is being replaced in January by 59-year-old Mark Roosevelt, who was chosen from four finalists in a national search.

Roosevelt is the president who helped revive Colorado’s Antioch College in Yellow Springs when it closed in 2008 for the first time since 1850.

The great-grandson of former U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt and Harvard graduate with degrees in art history and law, he says he plans to work on securing donors and increasing enrollment.

Peters says St. John’s has a bright future, and that he and his wife are moving to the East Coast to be closer to family.
