WILLIAMSTON, Martin County - The State Board of Community Colleges is cutting off the salary of Martin Community College's president. It's in response to gaps found in a state audit.
On Tuesday the board reviewed a corrective plan by the college. The board asked for the plan after issues with an audit for the 2014 and 2015 school year, one of the issues being fiscal management.
The report states the college had leftover funds but still had equipment and staffing gaps. In a statement to NewsChannel 12,State Board of Community College Chair Scott Shook said: “While this unprecedented action is certainly unfortunate, the state board unanimously agreed that it was necessary to uphold its duty to the taxpayers of North Carolina and to ensure that the students and businesses of Martin and Bertie counties are appropriately served by our system."
