Williston State President Resigns Earlier than Announced

WILLISTON, N.D. ― Williston State College President Raymond Nadolny resigned effective Monday, a year ahead of the date he previously announced.

Nadolny originally announced the resignation to staff on May 16, saying he’d continue serving in the role until the end of his contract period on June 30, 2017. He had said with aging parents and family separated on two coasts, it was time to be closer to those he has been away from over his past seven years in the president’s role.

He said he moved up the date to spend the summer with his three daughters as his family begins the relocation process.

In 2014, University System Interim Chancellor Larry Skogen placed Nadolny on indefinite leave pending an investigation into alleged alcohol misconduct. Nadolny returned to his post within a month.
