Trigg County second grade teacher Brian Parker Cadiz City Council member and retired high school teacher Susan Bryant and retired teacher Charlene Sheehan all expressed their disapproval. Parker even returned the umbrellas that district teachers were given as a token of the board’s appreciation.
“A storm began brewing for the Trigg County School System when it was announced that Superintendent Travis Hamby would be receiving a raise of $7,889 after only four years on the job,” Parker said, reading from a prepared statement. “This is twice the salary of a Rank One employee with 25-plus years of experience. The raise itself is nearly half of a certified employee’s yearly salary.”
At a meeting earlier this year, board members gave Hamby a new four-year contract, which starts at the beginning of the new fiscal year, Tuesday, July 1, 2014. When he first came on, he made $105,000 a year. His new contract is for $115,000 a year.
