that former University of Central Arkansas president Allen Meadors
has been charged with one misdemeanor count of tampering with a public record
over allegations that Meadors asked someone at UCA to shred a letter from food vendor Aramark. Aramark had made a $700,000 donation to a fund which was used to renovate the president's on-campus house. The letter in question reportedly spelled out that a stipulation of the donation was the renewal of Aramark's contract with UCA.
The UCA board of trustees voted unanimously to buy out Meadors' contract with the university in Sept. 2011 for $525,000
