Martin University President White to Retire

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

Longtime Indiana educator Eugene White has announced he will retire as Martin University president next year. White was hired in September 2013 after over seven years at the helm of Indianapolis Public Schools.

White previously served as deputy IPS superintendent and Washington Township Schools superintendent after roles as a teacher, coach and principal of Fort Wayne Schools, the first African-American to be named principal there. He later was named principal at North Central High School, also becoming the first African-American in that position. “I came to Martin as interim president in September, 2013 to preserve the legacy of Fr. Boniface Hardin and Sr. Jane Schilling and help the University thrive again,” said Dr. White.  “After arriving, I realized it would take five years to get Martin back to its original mission and I would need to become a full-time president to reach certain goals. It’s time to once again retire as an educator – for the third time.” 

White was named Indiana Superintendent of the Year in 2002 and 2009, and was selected as the National Association of Black School Educators Superintendent of the Year in 2007. White holds degrees from Alabama A&M University, University of Tennessee and Ball State. He will officially step down June 30, 2019.
