Trevino to take $40,000 pay cut at Rehabilitation Services

Posted By on Mon, Sep 17, 2012 at 12:44 PM

I got an answer today on the new pay for Robert Trevino, who announced Friday that he'd be stepping down as head of the Arkansas Rehabilitation Services Division of the Career Education Department.

He made the announcement after the end of state office hours Friday, not long after the release earlier in the day of a scathing audit of the division's financial practices. Trevino, who said family obligations prompted his move and not the audit, had made $109,000. In his new job as associate director for program planning, development and evaluation, he will make $68,882, department director Bill Walker said. I've inquired about how the position to which Trevino moved happened to be open and whether it was advertised for other applicants. UPDATE: It became vacant by retirement July 1. In response to my question of whether it was advertised, I was told simply that Trevino would be transferred to that job.
