Sanders signed a contract Monday morning that will earn him nearly $900,000 in a five-year span beginning Aug. 1.
"Of all the things I've done in my career, this is clearly my most important and significant assignment," Sanders said. "To lead the educational institution in your hometown is a special, once in a life time opportunity."
His annual salary is $158,000.
A Sandusky native, Sanders said connecting with the local community is a top priority.
