Divided SC State trustees OK president's $330K pay

Posted: Updated:

ORANGEBURG, S.C. (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 money.

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.

3 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.
