Harford CC president Dennis Golladay awarded new contract
Members of Harford Community College's Board of Trustees recently voted unanimously to extend the contract of college President Dennis Golladay.
Golladay, 71, was hired by HCC in the summer of 2010 and was signed to a three-year contract, scheduled to end in late July.
His new three-year contract will begin Aug. 1 and includes two additional one-year options which can be exercised, if Golladay and the board agree to do so, according to an HCC news release.
"I'm in a great position, a great job and it's just been an incredible pleasure over the past two-and-a-half years to be associated with the college," Golladay said Tuesday.
Golladay was hired in 2010 at a salary of $180,000 a year, The Aegis reported at the time. Board of Trustees Chairman Bryan Kelly said Tuesday Golladay's salary would not change with the new contract.
Golladay took over from former President Jim LaCalle, who served as college president for five-and-a-half years and also was a long-serving administrator at the school.
"He had some big shoes to fill with the prior President LaCalle being a 40-year veteran," Kelly said of Golladay, who came to Harford County from the State University of New York system, where Golladay had been vice chancellor of community colleges with SUNY.
"I think he's done an admirable job [at HCC]," Kelly said.
