Clackamas Community College fires theater teacher after complaints

Jim Eikrem addresses audience members before a "Number the Stars" production at Clackamas Community College.

Over the past several months, Clackamas Community College put together a grievance committee consisting of eight full-time faculty members to determine if Jim Eikrem, the former theater director for Clackamas Community College, was terminated justifiably last fall.

Eikrem, who worked at CCC for 11 years before being fired last September, is currently in arbitration with the college. Eikrem was terminated after several complaints claiming he was verbally abusive and displayed a pattern of inappropriate behavior.
