Poshard Resigns As Morthland President

(WEST FRANKFORT, IL) — Morthland College in West Frankfort is looking for a new president after Glenn Poshard recently stepped down from the job he took a few months ago. According to WSIL-TV, Poshard was unanimously voted into the position back in February. The college’s board held an emergency meeting last Wednesday and appointed Dr. Tim Morthland to take back the position back temporarily. Poshard said in a statement that he believes strongly in the vision and mission of Morthland College and the opportunity it provides in offering students a faith-based Christian education, but there are serious issues, both personal and financial, of which Poshard was not notified when he began as president, and which, he concluded, could only be resolved by an authority other than himself.
