Under Fire, President Quits at Laramie County CC

December 1, 2010

Darrel Hammon has resigned as president of Laramie County Community College amid criticism from some trustees and faculty members, The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported. Hammon was criticized in an internal report for mishandling the suicidal behaviors of a student on a 2008 trip the president led to Costa Rica -- and he was also criticized for trying to block release of the critical report. Also, the Faculty Senate recently called for an investigation into whether the college is hiring too many administrators. In resigning, Hammon defended his record, but said that it would be difficult to lead the institution without full board support.
