INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. (AP) - Sierra Nevada College President Lynn Gillette has abruptly resigned and the school's executive vice president has been named as his temporary replacement.

The North Lake Tahoe Bonanza reports ( that the college's board of trustees announced the move in a statement Tuesday, explaining only that Gillette is leaving "to pursue other interests."

SNC Trustee Bob Hall told the newspaper it's a personnel matter and the terms of his departure are sealed.

Shannon Beets, the current executive vice president and provost, will serve as interim president during the search for a permanent replacement at the four-year, liberal arts college in Incline Village.

Gillette was appointed president in November 2011, a month after Richard Rubsamen resigned. He'd served as executive president and provost for more than three years before that.
