A-B Tech president Betty Young’s resignation memo

Dr. Betty Young, the president of Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College who was hired last year and inaugurated in May, announced on Dec. 23, 2008, that she would resign. Young’s announcement does not say when her resignation would take effect.

In an e-mailed memo sent to college faculty and staff, Young cited her goals and accomplishments, then goes on to say: “So with so much being accomplished, what has created a sense of discontent among some people of A-B Tech? Have we moved too quickly, is there not enough buy-in, is it my style of leadership?”
