ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - The Winthrop University board of trustees wants the school’s fundraising foundation to pay for the search for a new president.

The Herald of Rock Hill reports (https://bit.ly/1omXDQx) that in 2012 the university paid a Florida firm almost $130,000 for the search that resulted in the hiring of Jamie Comstock Williamson.

She was fired last month after one year when the board determined she violated the university’s nepotism policy, lied and was demeaning and rude.

The trustees voted unanimously Monday to begin talks with the Winthrop University Foundation about paying for a new search.

The university again will use a consultant, but probably not the one it used two years ago. Board Vice Chairman Karl Folkens says the school wants to take a fresh look at the available search firms.
