Grayson College draft budget includes salary increases, new positions

The Grayson College board of trustees met Tuesday afternoon to discuss a draft budget that included anticipated salary increases for the college’s staff and faculty.

This raise would cause the salary expenses for nonadjunct faculty to increase by 4.79 percent over what was budgeted last year — a $538,970 increase.
