Mission College President William E. Norlund, who announced Wednesday that he will retire in June, insisted that he wasn't forced to step down because he lost a $4.7-million state grant last year to expand the campus.

Mission College President William E. Norlund apologized to area residents Saturday and accepted blame for the college's forfeiture of $4.7 million in state funds earmarked for expansion of the Sylmar campus. Norlund, speaking to more than 100 residents and activists at a forum in City Council chambers, said he should have solicited opinions regarding the proposed expansion early enough to meet a Dec. 30 deadline for using the funds. That deadline cannot be met now, he said.
