UA's first female president reflects on her year

Posted: Updated:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — A year after becoming the first female president of the University of Alabama, Judy Bonner has guided the institution through record-breaking growth, the death of Athletics Director Mal Moore, and the integration of traditionally white sororities.

The 66-year-old president reflected on that year Wednesday in a speech to the faculty and staff in Tuscaloosa.

Bonner said the university is stronger when everyone shows respect. She also said the university's continued growth depends on having a culture of success for everyone.

Faculty Senate President Steve Miller said it has been a challenging first year, but Bonner has had as much impact on the university as football coach Nick Saban.
