FAMU trustees ask interim president to stay longer
Published December 3, 2005
TALLAHASSEE - The Florida A&M University board of trustees wants interim president Castell Bryant to stay on for up to two more years at the school that was reeling from scandals, financial troubles and other problems when she took the job 11 months ago.
The board agreed Thursday to develop a new contract offer but approved an immediate $35,000 bonus to reward Bryant for progress so far, including balancing the university's budget and staving off a funding cutoff by National Science Foundation.
Hired at a salary of $250,000, Bryant said she would wait to see the board's contract offer before deciding whether to accept it but was flattered by the action.
"I have a serious commitment to this university," she said.
