Sixteen employees at Treasure Valley Community College earned more than Oregon’s governor in 2015 with compensation topping $100,000, according to a new report released Tuesday by the college.

The top earner was Dennis Gill, an English instructor at the college. Gill, who has been on the staff since 1993, recorded earnings of $170,000.

That is nearly five times the average annual wage in Malheur County and compares to Gov. Kate Brown’s salary of $98,600.

College officials said compensation includes base salary and pay for assignments such as taking on extra classes, serving as department chair or working in summer school. They couldn’t immediately provide a break down of that extra pay for the Gill or other top earners.
