MARTIN COUNTY, N.C. — Students at a North Carolina community college want their school president gone.

WNCT-TV reported that more than half the students at Martin Community College have signed a petition asking the Board of Trustees to not renew Dr. Ann Britt’s contract.

Britt has constantly denied requests for funding and takes it upon herself to decide how the money should be spent, according to Brandy Jess, the school’s Student Government Association president.

“The SGA was paying for things that were not voted on such as student ID badges.” Secretary-elect Samantha Komar said. “Also there were internet services which by law cannot be paid by SGA funding.”

Komar also said the president has an apathetic attitude which is ruining the school’s future.

Britt said she couldn’t comment on the allegations until she spoke with her lawyer. Board chairman Jackie Gillam said the State Auditor’s office is looking into the allegations.
