CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)- The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education voted to add a year to Superintendent Heath E. Morrison's contract with the district at a meeting on Monday.
"The Board of Education feels that Dr. Morrison has worked tirelessly on behalf of the district these past 18 months and we have been very pleased with the results of his efforts," said Mary T. McCray, chairperson.
On Monday, the school board voted 6-2 to create a fund for Morrison to go toward his retirement, in an effort to keep him in Charlotte until 2022. About $11,000 will start the account and the board will decide each year whether or not to add to it. If Morrison stays until 2022, he will get that pot of money to go towards his retirement and that will increase his retirement check.
