Who makes $100K at CSN?

Nearly 11 percent of College of Southern Nevada employees earned $100,000 or more in pay in 2022, public records show.

A handful of CNS administrators made more than $200,000, excluding benefits such as contributions to the state pension system. However, the average pay for employees at the public community college – including part-time and temporary workers, and those who didn’t work the full year – was just $42,000, a data analysis shows.

For example, the college’s roughly 300 part-time instructors made on average $12,000 for the year, with one earning as little as $23 and another more than $58,000.

Here were the top earners in 2022, the most recent data available:

— Federico Zaragoza, president, pay $321,500, total compensation $374,600.

— Kerry Davis, dental faculty practice dentist, pay $232,700, total compensation $259,500.

— Mary Kaye Bailey, vice president finance and administration, pay $206,500, total compensation $246,600.
