HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Dr. Eric McKeithan recently retired after 18 years
of leadership at Cape Fear Community College. His work is finished, but he
continues to collect a six-figure paycheck each year.
Treasurer's office reports that McKeithan can collect $14,296 a month, which totals more than $170,000
Still, McKeithan's benefit package does not crack the top
ten government pensions in the state. Former New Hanover County ABC
administrator Billy Williams does. Since 2011, his rank dropped two spots to the seventh-highest-paid
pension. The names and figures listed below are current as of August 23, 2012.
A spokesperson for the state treasurer's office said because
McKeithan retired little more than a month ago, his pension could change based
on final wages from his employer.
