FORT SCOTT, Kansas (AP) – A southeast Kansas college is looking for a new president after parting ways with the incumbent by what officials called mutual agreement.
The Fort Scott Tribune reports Clay Tatro had been the subject of a recent no-confidence vote by faculty of Fort Scott Community College.
Tatro was not present this week when the school’s board of trustees approved an agreement to end his presidency, which was scheduled to expire in June 2017. Tatro had served twice previously as the college’s president and was seven years into his latest term.
The college’s attorney said details of the termination agreement are confidential. The Tribune reports Tatro had a base salary of $104,000.
Trustee Dick Hedges gave up his seat on the board to serve as interim president.
