Wright State president: ‘Avoiding fiscal watch is by no means a certainty’

I-Team Payroll Project: Sinclair College’s highest paid employees


The highest-paid employee at Sinclair Community College last year was the school’s president, Steven Johnson, who received $411,570, an I-Team review of payroll records shows.

Johnson’s pay was higher than Central State University’s president, but shy of presidential compensation at Miami University or Wright State.

Administrators topped Sinclair’s payroll. The 11 highest-paid employees had the name “president” or “provost” in their title. The top grossing faculty member ranked 13th: biology professor J. Michael Erbe, who made $139,121 last year.

Johnson said earlier this year that Sinclair’s financial health is good, though he worries about possible impacts from financial turmoil at Wright State, where a majority of Sinclair students go to complete a four-year degree.

Sinclair is projected to hand out 4,600 degrees this year – a record – and expects to set another record next year with 5,000 graduates.
