School board OKs retire, rehire
YOUNGSTOWN - Dr. Connie Hathorn will continue his career as superintendent of Youngstown City Schools after the Board of Education on Tuesday approved a retire / rehire deal that will keep Hathorn in charge until 2017.
The board voted 5-2, with board members Andrea Mahone and Brenda Kimble casting the dissenting votes on the four-year contract, which is effective July 2 at an annual salary of $119,250. This is a 10-percent cut from his previous contract, in which Hathorn made $132,000 a year, according to Tribune Chronicle news partner WYTV 33 News.
He will also start to collect his retirement from the state.
The contract runs through July 31, 2017. Hathorn said previously he wanted to retire now because changes to the state retirement system would result in him receiving less money from his pension if he waited.
