JACKSONVILLE — Employees at Lon Morris College in Jacksonville tell KETK their paychecks were late once again. It's a problem the school says is brought on by tough economic times. We spoke with the president of Lon Morris College, Dr. Miles McCall on Tuesday, he says employees have known since September that the school would be facing some challenges this month.
President McCall says the school did receive a $90,000 gift Tuesday; these donations he says helps speed up the accounts payable process. As for the rumors that the school may soon be forced to shut their doors, President McCall says that simply is not true.
Here is a statement from his office:
"Over the past year, we had to overcome a few challenges including delayed payrolls. December is always a time when cash flow is slow and expense increase due in part to increased utilities and maintenance as we approach the winter months." - President Dr. Miles McCall, Lon Morris College
