Jay Hakes, the Director of the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum in Atlanta, will step down at the end of July.
Hakes, who has held the position 13 years, wants to devote more time to writing and speaking about energy issues.
“Jay has been a wonderful director,” said former President Jimmy Carter. “Rosalynn and I appreciate all that he has done for the library and will miss working with him and his wife Anita.”
Hakes and his wife plan to split their time between Atlanta and New Orleans.
