Tom Stuckey, president of Northwest State Community College, had his contract extended four additional years by the NSCC Board of Trustees.
The board took the action at its Monday, Nov. 12 meeting.
His salary remains the same, at $129,000.
Stuckey was appointed acting president of Northwest State on Aug. 16, 2007, replacing Betty Young, who resigned the post effective Aug. 31 of that year.
When he was appointed, the board had not determined his salary.
Prior to becoming NSCC president, Stuckey, a college employee since 1983, had been executive vice president, chief academic officer, and chief financial officer.
He was named interim president at a board meeting Oct. 5, 2007. He was given an 18-month contract, at an annual salary of $126,480.
Stuckey was elevated to president on April 2, 2008.
His contract was extended in June 2010 to the current expiration date.
In February 2010, he received a 1.99% pay hike, to $129,000, which was in line with the 2% pay hike in base pay college instructors received.
His current contract wasn’t set to expire until next year, but the board voted to extend his contract to 2016.
Robert Hall, chairman of the NSCC board, said, “Over the past four years, Dr. Stuckey has been a tireless advocate for Northwest State students.
“He has worked with NSCC’s faculty and staff to develop the programs and services that students need to start their careers or successfully transfer to a fouryear degree.
“The board’s evaluation concluded that Dr. Stuckey’s leadership has helped NSCC carry out its mission of improving lives and strengthening communities.”
