Back in February, Frederick Community College announced that its new president had departed the institution due to "philosophical differences." The man, who had served only about six months as the community college's president, left his post after the college's board of trustees held a closed meeting on Jan. 3.
The college has now released a partially redacted copy of his severance agreement. He was apparently paid about six month's salary, $90,000, in addition to compensation for unused vacation hours. The agreement also contains a sample reference letter should future employers contact the community college. Additionally, the agreement bars the man from talking about any of the terms of his departure and from criticizing his former-employer.
