The Board of Trustees of Kellogg Community College, in Battle Creek, Mich., on Wednesday voted unanimously to take Dennis J. Bona off of paid leave and to allow him to return to work as the institution’s president.
Last month the board put Mr. Bona on leave pending the results of an inquiry into his “interactions with college personnel.” The specifics of the investigation were not known at the time Mr. Bona was placed on leave, but the Battle Creek Enquirer reported on Wednesday that Mr. Bona had been placed on leave “after a former security guard alleged he caught the president in a sexual situation with a woman in his office in spring 2013.”
But Jonathan Byrd, chairman of the college’s board, said on Wednesday that the inquiry had found that “there was not adequate evidence to substantiate the allegations being investigated.”Return to Top
