President of Md. Community College Is Ousted After 6 Months

Frederick Community College, in Frederick, Md., has ousted its new president, who took office in July, according to the Frederick News-Post. A college spokesman told the newspaper that Frederico J. Talley’s abrupt replacement followed a personnel dispute between Mr. Talley and the college’s Board of Trustees, though a written statement from the institution does not elaborate on the reasons for the leadership change. Dixie J. Miller, the board’s chairwoman, said in the statement that the switch would mean “no disruption of services for the thousands of students who take classes on our campus.” Mr. Talley was the college’s first African-American leader.
