Jack Quinn

Former New York Rep. Quinn retiring from community college

Former New York Congressman Jack Quinn says this will be his last academic year as president of Erie Community College.

The 65-year-old Quinn has been president of the two-year college, part of the State University of New York system, since 2008. He is paid $192,500.

Quinn says he'll go out on a high note when he retires following the 2017 commencement. The college is about to break ground on a $30 million building for its science, technology, engineering and math programming and will complete a nanotechnology wing next year.

A search committee will be formed to look for Quinn's successor.

Quinn represented Buffalo in Congress from 1993 through 2005.
