LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) - The Luna Community College board of trustees has voted to oust President Leroy “Huero” Sanchez.

The Las Vegas Optic reports (https://goo.gl/9De2Zj) that the college’s board of trustees voted last week to end Sanchez’s employment contract on June 30.

Sanchez’s tenure, which began in June 2015, has been plagued with claims of nepotism and other issues prompting investigations from outside agencies.

Last year, Sanchez said he and the school’s board of trustees made a mistake by doing away with its nepotism policy. He said hiring decisions were based on the good of the institution, but he said he understood the perception.

His comments came after a special audit of the Las Vegas community college questioned the school’s hiring practices.
