Adams getting golden exit

  • Follow Letters

I appreciated the articles covering the planned retirement of University of Georgia President Michael Adams. Each article leaves me shaking my head and going to the kitchen for a needed glass of water.

Let me see now: His annual pay package is $660,000 for two years and $258,000 for three years. This is in addition to $600,000 in deferred compensation. This is for “significant contribution for the institution,” which I think means doing your job.

I suspect Dr. Adams has done a good job. In the private sector, if you don’t, you get fired. I just wonder if those involved in this pay scheme have spent equal time in figuring how to reduce the cost of our children going to college. We are in a time when even middle-class families are scratching and borrowing to pay college education costs.

No matter how many times I look at this picture, it’s just not hanging straight.
