SC State trustees won't reveal new leader's salary


ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina State University trustees have approved the salary for its new president, but aren't ready to make the details public.

The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg reports ( ) trustees sent a letter Friday to the State Budget and Control Board asking it to approve the new salary package for Thomas J. Elzey. Trustees say they don't have to make their proposal public now, although the South Carolina Press Association says the letter is a public document because it was approved by a public agency.

The trustees did say that $131,000 of Elezy's salary will come from the S.C. State University Advancement Foundation, which raises money for the school.

Elzey is currently a vice president at The Citadel. He will start his new job June 15.
