The Wake Education Partnership will be looking for a new leader in the near future.
Ann Denlinger, the group's president, said she recently told the WEP board that it's time to start succession planning for her replacement. But Denlinger said no departure date has been set yet. She plans to stay on until her successor is named, which could take awhile.
Denlinger explained that when she took the WEP job in 2007 she told the group that she'd stay on for three to five years. After nearly three as WEP's president, Denlinger, 66, said she reminded the board of her earlier plans.
