UCA Board to Discuss Troubled School President's Future

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The University of Central Arkansas Board of Trustees will meet Thursday to discuss the future of embattled presidenet Lu Hardin, who has faced questions after he was awarded a $300,000 bonus in secret last spring.

Rush F. Harding III, vice chairman of the board, said Wednesday that the panel would meet at 11 a.m. on the UCA campus at Conway to discuss Hardin's future but did not know whether Hardin planned to resign his post.

Hardin, who has repaid the money, has served as head of UCA since 2002.  He did not immediately return calls Wednesday afternoon.

"This whole situation has been a huge distraction," Harding said.  "The board is having a meeting in the morning to sit down with the president and figure out how to get this behind us."
