John A. Logan College President Mike Dreith no longer has a buyout clause in his contract.
The JALC Board voted to cut the clause from his contract yesterday by a 5-2 vote. The clause says that Dreith may be terminated at any time, without cause, and with severance pay equal to six months salary.
Trustees Don Brewer and Bill Kilquist voted against the idea. Kilquist wanted to have legal counsel review the contract first, while Brewer thought the issue should have been talked about in executive session.
