Buddy Payne will retire as president of Florida College at the end of the 2021-2022 academic year, after a notable 12-year career leading the college.
Payne began his career with Florida College as a chemistry professor in 1972. Over the years, he has held multiple positions at the college including mathematics professor, registrar, Dean of Students and Vice President & Academic Dean.
“Marilyn and I consider ourselves richly blessed to have served side by side for almost fifty years with many dedicated and beloved fellow-Christians whose purpose was to provide a life-changing experience for thousands of young people who in turn would go on to serve our Lord and this world in His name,” says Payne.
The Florida College Board of Trustees will announce a presidential transition plan in the near future.
