Ole Miss Chancellor Announces Resignation

Chicot Memorial

OXFORD, MS (Ben Caxton) — After three years as chancellor of the University of Mississippi, Jeffrey Vitter will step down in January. Vitter was provost at the University of Kansas when he was chosen for the Ole Miss post in October 2015, accepting a four-year contract at $600,000 annually. And the chief justice of the Mississippi Supreme Court says he will retire from the bench January 31st. Justice William Waller Jr. of Jackson says he is in good health but feels it’s time to step down. The 66-year old has served 21 years on the Supreme Court, 10 as chief justice. Justice Michael K. Randolph of Hattiesburg is in line to become the next chief justice. Governor Phil Bryant will appoint a new justice for Waller’s central Mississippi district, and that person will serve the final three years of his eight-year term.
