CLEARFIELD – Dr. Lanny Ross was hired as acting executive officer for the Clearfield County Career & Technology Center at last night’s Joint Operating Committee meeting.
Ross’ contract with CCCTC is retroactive to May 18, 2015. He is hired on a consulting basis at a rate of $500 per day.
Ross retired as chief executive officer of the Greater Altoona Career & Technology Center in March after 20 years there.
The CCCTC has been accepting applications for the executive director position that was left vacant May 11 on the resignations of William Weaver and assistant director Cathy Thomas.
The resignations followed an alleged incident of sexual misconduct by a CCCTC staff member that was reported May 1.
A committee member said after the meeting that the JOC has had no new information on the sexual misconduct investigation, and that it is in the hands of the police and the courts.
As the municipal law enforcement, Lawrence Township Police Department is involved in the ongoing investigation.
