Bajan fired from top college post in US


Share post:

A BARBADIAN HAS been creating waves in the United States, but for the wrong reasons.

Lisa Haynes has been dismissed from a top administrative job at the 13 000-student Chattanooga State Community College in Tennessee.

Its president, Jim Catanzaro, who had headed the school for 24 of its 50 years, has had to step down. He had hired Haynes, who he met while he was on holiday in Barbados, in 2013, as his executive assistant and the school’s chief innovation officer at an annual salary of US$90 000 that was later raised to US$108 000. Also forced out was Harold Crum, the college’s human resources director, who was faulted for his involvement in Haynes’ recruitment.

Crum submitted his resignation after the Tennessee Board of Regents, which oversees the management of the network of state universities and colleges, conducted a wide-ranging audit of allegations made by faculty and others.
