Former Northern Kentucky University Athletic Director Scott Eaton pleaded guilty Thursday afternoon in Campbell County Circuit Court to stealing more than $311,000 from the school. He's been ordered to repay the university and has agreed to serve the maximum sentence of ten years in prison.
Eaton was charged with theft by unlawful taking for diverting university funds for his own use. He was fired in March 2013 for having inappropriate relations with four university employees and a student.
The Northern Kentucky University Music Preparatory Department is one of the newest members of the prestigious National String Project consortium, a nationally recognized coalition of sites offering affordable, quality stringed instrument instruction at colleges and universities across the United States. Frank Johnson welcomes Dr. Holly Attar and Dr. Amy Gillingham from NKU to talk about this program and how students and the community can join in.
Gateway Community College and Northern Kentucky University are partnering to make it easier for Gateway students to pursue four-year degrees at NKU.
Students can choose from 25 career paths and take up to four NKU classes at Gateway prices. All of their credits will transfer as well.
NKU President Geoffrey Mearns says the partnership will offer better service to all students, more efficient and effective use of resources and enhance opportunities for students to pursue their goals.
