Larry Tyree said he quit as McHenry County College’s interim president because of family reasons.
Now the Florida Keys Keynoter reports Tyree is one of four candidates for interim president at Florida Keys Community College.
Here’s how he is described:
“Larry Tyree of Sarasota. This would not be Tyree’s first stint as an interim community college president. He’s had that gig four times in the past three years at two colleges in Kansas, one in New York and one in Illinois.
“Tyree is also a former president of Gulf Coast Community College in Panama City. He has been working in higher education administration since 1967.”
And the situation at the sunny community college?
The current president is “out.” And, as is McHenry County, she gets paid through the end of her 2010 contract. She’ll be on “sabbatical.”
“Until her contract expires, (President Jill) Landesberg-Boyle will continue to get pay, benefits, use of a college-owned vehicle, and housing and cell phone stipends. She makes $159,000 annually, not including $37,000 in benefits and a $3,000 monthly housing allowance.”
Pretty much the exit strategy that was used with McHenry County College Board President Walt Packard.
