LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Trustees at the University of Central Arkansas have voted to turn an investigation of a proposed $700,000 donation over to the school's internal audit office.
The Board of Trustees voted Friday to follow Interim President Tom Courtway's recommendation on how to investigate the proposed donation that cost the school's president his job.
President Allen C. Meadors resigned last week after he failed to tell school trustees that a food services company's proposed donation to renovate his university-owned house came with strings attached.
Meadors is the second school president in a row to leave under pressure. Lu Hardin resigned in 2008 after controversy erupted over bonus money he received from the university.
