College trustees OK staff, faculty raises

August 7, 2013

Howard College trustees gave tentative approval to across-the-board pay raises for district personnel during a combination budget workshop-regular meeting Tuesday.

College employees would see their annual income increase by at least $1,200 under the new budget, which will not be formally approved until Aug. 27.

Faculty can expect annual salary increases of between $1,389 and $1,857, depending on their contracts, while other employees will see significant pay raises also, College President Dr. Cheryl Sparks said.

In addition, three teaching positions which had been left vacant after recent resignations — history/government, speech and computer sciences — will be restored and staffed during the coming college year.

The board's actions follows two years of belt-tightening by college officials in the wake of drastically reduced state appropriations.

Over that time, the state's outlay to Howard was reduced by about 20 percent. In response, the college froze salaries and new hires and, in some cases, combined job duties.
