The Rev Dr Selwyn Yeoman has resigned as master of Knox
College due to health issues.
Dr Yeoman was appointed in November 2012, when the college
was undergoing an extensive $12.1 million
earthquake-strengthening and extension project.
Chairman of the Commission for Knox and Salmond College
acknowledged the positive contribution that Dr Yeoman had
made during his short tenure as the master.
''While his tenure has been shorter than expected, he has
made a significant contribution to rebuilding a culture
within Knox that is based on respect and Christian values.
''This is something the new master will continue once
appointed. We fully support Selwyn's decision to focus on his
health,'' he said.
The commission would begin recruitment of a new master
Until a replacement was found, the commission had appointed
Maurie Jackways, who is head of neighbouring Salmond College,
as acting Knox master.
