NMC regents retain Hart

AFTER almost five hours of deliberations in a closed-door session, the Northern Marianas College board of regents finally announced its decision to renew the contract of NMC President Sharon Y Hart.

“I was pleased today with the decision of the board,” Hart said in an interview after the board meeting.

The regents unanimously approved the renewal of her contract which would have expired in July this year.

However, the board and Hart still have to negotiate the terms and condition of the contract, including its duration.

Hart’s expiring contract was for two years.

The board reconvened yesterday morning and went into executive session at 11;30 a.m. The meeting ended at 4:30 p.m.

Before voting on the contract renewal, the board discussed the performance-evaluation report on the president.

Hart said the decision to renew her contract showed the commitment of the board and her own commitment to move forward for the good and in the interests of the institution.

Asked if she had any comments on her contract, she said it would be premature to discuss the terms which will be discussed during her negotiations with the board.
