A settlement has been reached in a lawsuit brought by a former community college president against the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.
Under terms of the settlement, former Owensboro Community & Technical College President Paula Gastenveld will get $250,000, according to the Messenger-Inquirer.
The agreement is not an admission of guilt or liability. In court documents, the college system said it agreed to the settlement in order to avoid “further controversy or litigation and the associated costs” and it denies violating any policies, procedures or laws.
Gastenveld filed suit against the college system and 10 others claiming a conspiracy let to her dismissal as president in 2009.
