INDIANAPOLIS – The former superintendent of Indianapolis Public Schools will take over as interim president at Martin University.

Dr. Eugene White retired from IPS in April after seven years as superintendent. He’ll replace Dr. George Miller, who announced his resignation in August to take another education job in the south.

White became IPS superintendent in 2005 after serving as superintendent of Washington Township Schools for 11 years. He is a native of Phenix City, Ala., who also worked in the Ft. Wayne school system as a teacher, coach and administrator.

Martin University, a private, nonprofit liberal arts college, was founded in 1977 by Rev. Boniface Hardin and Sister Jane Schilling.
