ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) -- The campus leader who's headed South Carolina's Winthrop University for nearly a quarter-century is heading into retirement. 

The Herald of Rock Hill reports (http://bit.ly/14EQcf6 ) that Winthrop President Anthony DiGiorgio arrived in 1989 and is leaving on Sunday after 24 years. 

DiGiorgio changed the former women's school once known mostly for training teachers into a public university that receives national recognition. He has worked to upgrade campus buildings and services, and keep operating with dramatically reduced state funding.  

DiGiorgio's successor is Jayne Marie Comstock, a former vice president of academic affairs at Butler University in Indianapolis.
