Central State University in Southwestern Ohio is marking its 125th Anniversary as it looks for a new president.

The historically black school in Wilberforce plans to celebrate the anniversary with a ceremonial gathering Tuesday.  The Dayton Daily News reports the school of more than 2,500 students is the only predominately black institution in Ohio.

It's looking for new leadership because alumnus and school President John Garland plans to retire in June.  He has led the school since 1997.
