James Hefner chose to announce his retirement from Tennessee State University at this year's commencement. He told the crowd that he will step down next May, after what will be his 14th year in office. Observers note that Hefner may be Leaving before being forced out by critics. In April, the TSU Foundation auditors reported that Hefner handed out $2.6 million in student scholarships over the years, even though such gifts created deficits.
