MADISON (WKOW) -- The president of Edgewood College in Madison announced Tuesday he is retiring in September of 2014.
Dan Carey became president of Edgewood in 2004. Since then, the school has grown with more students, more diversity, new programs and new buildings.
"I always had the feeling that I wanted to go out on top. I wanted to go out with people saying 'Gee, I wish he would have stayed a little bit longer'," Carey said Tuesday.
After retiring Carey said he hopes to stay involved at Edgewood and that he could be available as a consultant for the school's new president and its board. Carey also plans to get involved with some national leadership academies.
But before he retires, Carey said he has a lot to do on campus. One of his main goals is raising money for a new residence hall. Carey said he hopes the school can raise enough money to possibly break ground as early as next May.
