Part XIII: Cleveland Community College–Personnel Salaries —Report by Robert A. Williams

Several folks have asked me how to get the salaries of Cleveland Community College full time employees? You gotta ask for it in no uncertain terms. I filed a request to CCC under the Freedom of Information Act s well as North Carolina Public Records laws. I got a response in record time.

I modified the list somewhat to show the salaries from the top to the bottom for your convenience and information.

What I find interesting is the difference in salary between the top salary, President Steve Thornburg, and the number two salary of Shannon Kennedy. Third top salary is Eddie Holbrook. Eddie’s wife Millie Holbrook is number ten on this list. Between Eddie and Millie Holbrook, they knock down $199,540.00.

Also Eddie Holbrook’s title is Senior Dean of Development and Governmental Relations. My next request for information may be to ask for a job description for this title.

Folks, here is the public record you wanted to see. Do not be afraid to ask CCC for public records. They belong to you and NC law says you can see them if you ask.

    Thank you so much for publishing this and other articles about CCC! It’s about time!!!!!

  2. Wasteful spending

    Holy cow – a secretary is a secretary! So many titles for this position and such a wide difference in pay. Library Services Coordinator, Administrative Assistant, Office Assistant, Continuing Ed. Office Technician, SO Many TITLES.
    How many technology positions, counselors, and secretaries does it take.
    Evaluation of workforce is needed by new President.

    Waste of tax payer money in my lowly opinion.

  3. CCC

    And the sad thing? A lot of the ACTUAL work done at the college is completed by the part-time staff. I can’t tell you how many times we have to pick up full-time staff’s slack because something “isn’t technically my department” and they can be bothered to pick up a phone. Would love to see the part-time pay rates listed. I know for the Main college helpdesk, it’s $10/hr with no more than 25 hours per week (very strict), because Lord forbid part-time people get benefits!
