Marshall Stanton, president of Kansas Wesleyan University for the past 17 1/2 years, will retire next June. Stanton, 65, said his decision comes at a time the university is financially strong, and as preparations begin for the next strategic plan an assessment of academics and facilities expected to take at least five years. After serving in churches in Ohio and Kansas, Stanton was superintendent of the Hutchinson District of the United Methodist Church before being elected president of Kansas Wesleyan in February 1984. Under his leadership the school rebounded from crippling financial problems that nearly forced it to close. It now has an enrollment of more than 700 students and its endowment has grown from $1.8 million in 1983 to $18 million. ________________ Gasoline costs: Pump patrol tracks down lowest prices in Lawrence The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.179 per gallon at Citgo, Ninth and Iowa streets, and Site Service Station, 946 E. 23rd St. If you find a lower price, please call us at 832-7154.
