St. Louis Community College - Meramec

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A divided board of trustees at St. Louis Community College has voted not to extend Chancellor Myrtle Dorsey’s contract.

The contract ends next June. Dorsey earns about $220,000 annually and has a car and housing allowance.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the motion to extend Dorsey’s contract failed on a 3-3 vote. The vote was Saturday and results were disclosed after people aware of the meeting requested the outcome under the state Sunshine Law.

The vote came months after the college’s handling of an attack on a female student in a restroom was criticized. The attack happened on the Meramec campus. Opinions were divided on Dorsey’s handling of the April 18 attack.

Days after the attack, Meramec campus president George Wasson resigned.
