Divided SC State trustees OK president's $330K pay | News
ORANGEBURG, SC (AP) - South Carolina State University trustees have offered new president Thomas
Elzey a salary of $330,000 a year, but several trustees say that is too much
The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg reports trustees voted 6-4 on Tuesday to offer the contract to Elzey, a vice
president at The Citadel set to take over the Orangeburg school on June 15.
Trustees opposed to the plan felt Elzey is being paid too much. The last
president made about $250,000. They also didn't like that his contract runs
through the end of 2014.
Three of the six trustees that supported the contract will be leaving this
summer after they were voted off the board.
The newspaper says the university also refused to release Elzey's full contract
until it is signed.
