BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The chancellor’s position at Louisiana Delta Community College in West Monroe is up for grabs.

Dr. Barbara Hanson announced her resignation Thursday in an open letter to the college community, saying she will be seeking new job opportunities that will let her spend more time with her first and only grandchild.

Hanson, who started as chancellor in January 2013, has already begun working with the Board of Supervisors and System President Monty Sullivan to help ensure a smooth transition for the next leader.

Under her leadership, Hanson moved the college from an inherited $3.1 million deficit to less than a $1 million deficit in two years without reducing programs or services.
