Former Essex educator won't be reinstated

September 21, 1996

A former Essex Community College associate professor who was fired when the program in which she taught was eliminated lost a bid to get her job back and to recover $250,000, in a county Circuit Court trial.

Enid Bank, 55, of Pikesville taught keyboarding, word processing and desktop publishing for a degree-granting program at the school and was fired in 1994 when the school closed the office technology program in which she taught. She filed suit alleging breach of contract, saying the classes still were being taught.

A jury did not award her money or reinstate Bank, who has found another job.

According to John A. Austin, the attorney for Andrew J. Snope, the dean of instruction, "the contract provides that when the program ends, the job ends."
