Central Arizona College’s president will receive a boost in pay following a vote by the Governing Board, bringing her total compensation to more than $250,000 annually.

Jackie Elliott’s new base salary will be $217,764 after the board voted to increase her salary to “remain consistent” with other similar-sized colleges, said Governing Board President Gladys Christensen.

The board conducted an in-depth review of Elliott’s performance as well as a salary review, Christensen said at the board meeting on Aug. 15. The board felt the need to raise Elliott’s salary to bring her in line with the 80th percentile of college presidents.
