Chancellor of Appalachian State University to step down citing ‘health issues’

The chancellor at Appalachian State University announced on Monday that she will be stepping down from her position. In a statement, she cited significant health challenges as the reason for her decision and expressed pride in the growth and development of the university over the past decade. She mentioned her excitement for the development of the Innovation District and the Hickory Campus, as well as the positive impact these resources will have on the region.

During her time at Appalachian State, which began in July 2014, Everts was instrumental in leading the university.

This announcement marks the end of an era for Appalachian State University, as the search for a new chancellor will now begin. The university will continue to thrive and grow, building on the foundation laid by Everts during her tenure. The future looks bright for App State and the region as a whole, thanks to the dedication of individuals like Everts and the resources available to support their vision.
