Former president of Keene State College Anne E. Huot has decided to jump into another administrative role, according to the Keene Sentinel. However, Huot intends to shift her place of employment outside of New Hampshire.

Castleton University, located in Castleton, Vermont, is currently on the search for a new president to take over after current President Dave Wolk steps down in December. Wolk announced earlier this year he would be stepping down after 16 years at the university, the Keene Sentinel reports.

Huot is one of the four finalists for the position, according to the university’s website. The other finalists include Founding Principal at Northeastern University Toronto Campus John LaBrie, Senior Vice President and Provost of Mansfield University in Pennsylvania Steven Siconolfi and President of Central Penn College Karen Scolforo, according to the website.

On June 26, Huot announced her resignation as president of KSC, effective July 31 in an e-mail to the campus. Her reasoning was both personal and professional in the e-mail. According to a news release from the University System of New Hampshire, Huot planned to take a year of unpaid leave and then return to KSC as a full-time professor in the biology department.
