In a story out this morning by James McNair for the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting, the recently retired president of Gateway Community College is taking an annual salary of $34,800.00 for 10 years. This retirement salary is in stark contrast to his salary during employment which was $177, 463.00 annually.
