LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) – A recently completed special audit of a Las Vegas community college is questioning the school’s hiring practices.

The Las Vegas Optic reports that according to the report there were multiple instances of family members of the Luna Community College president and board members receiving jobs, promotions and substantial pay hikes.

Copies of the report are being forwarded to the Attorney General’s Office and to the Office of the State Auditor.

The Higher Education Department, which conducted the audit, said Friday that the audit was completed in response to complaints voiced by college officials and staff.

A response submitted to the department by Luna College officials defends the hiring decisions, promotions and pay raises, calling them all reasonable and based on circumstances.
