JSU's President Beehler Terminated by Board of Trustees
Just a month after announcing his leave of absence, Jacksonville State University’s Doctor John Beehler, has been terminated as president. During today’s university Board of Trustees meeting, members voted to give Doctor Beehler a 30 days’ notice of his termination.
The Board of Trustees did not give a reason as to why Beehler’s employment was terminated. The notice, however, is required under the terms of the president’s 2015 employment agreement. Beehler’s termination will go into effect on November 21st. and JSU’s Chief External Affairs Officer, Don Killingsworth, will serve as acting president.
Although the Board of Trustees have yet to announce plans to permanently fill the position or provide a timeline for a presidential search, board member and alumnus, Randy Jones says that he has never felt better, more optimistic and more encouraged about the future of JSU.
