‘Ready to pass the torch’: Stillman College’s first female president to retire

Cynthia Warrick, Stillman College’s first female president, will retire after leading the historically Black college for five years.

Warrick announced her retirement Thursday during a news conference held at the Wynn Center on the Stillman College campus in Tuscaloosa. Warrick’s retirement will go into effect at the end of her current contract on June 30, 2023.

Warrick, 68, said she is choosing to retire because she wants to relax and spend more time with her family, which includes grandchildren.

She was originally appointed as an interim president at Stillman and Warrick said she didn’t plan to fill the leadership role full time. But she said the role began to feel like a mission she was called to fulfill.
