I think that Pete Debusk is a mean person and is mean to his employees. However, I do think that Lincoln Memorial University is improving tremendously and I guess he is some of the reason for the improvement. Now if he could just get a heart. Deroyal De Royal

Yes, I have received some of the "DeBusk Treatment", along with some treatment from his chief syncophant Gary Burchett. The ONLY thing Pete is good at is being a bully and getting his way. I guess he believes that you can buy you way into heaven.

You are exactly right. Pete thinks he can buy his way out of everything. I don't think he will find it that easy when he is trying to buy his way into heaven. He has others do most of his dirty work. If he wants a tree cut at LMU he will have someone else use their name for getting it cut. After he got a few bad comments for cutting the Christmas trees. I read on here in another post where he has Nancy jumping through hoops. Well, he has Gary and Nancy to be his patsies. And then Gary asks like the saint on his Sunday morning show. Something doesnt seem to add up. Does it?

Pete DeBusk had a heart attack. I thought you might be interested in reading all of these latest comments that seem to be posted all over topics.

DeRoyal sent the Rose Hill jobs to Central America to work for 4 dollars a day and labor laws are seldom enforced. Pete should be sent down there. He should fit in well with ruthless dictators.

I was told by a supervisor that some of the products were rejected and pulled from the assembly line. Well, just so happens, Pete DeBusk was there at the time. He took the supervisor into a small room and told them to put it back and had it shipped. Now just think about this people. DON' T DEROYAL SELL MEDICAL SUPPLIES??? Once again, Pete out for himself and the heck with the community and the people that will be affected by these medical products.

Why do all the people complain about Pete DeBusk? He worked really hard to get where he is. Also, what right does a factory worker have to complain about the wages? As long as it's at least minimum wage and what the market is paying then that should suffice. And this isn't meant to be rude or mean in any way, but if you don't have a degree then why should you get paid more and more and more and more? The people should be THANKFUL that they even have an opportunity to have a job. I know that I'm in school and am working very hard to get a degree so that I can get a job that pays what I wish to make.

You are obviously an education major. Because you have a degree doesn't make you better educated than those who have to work out the taxes that pay you. You will go into the school system and intellectually stagnate until you are a stumbling block in the way of the students who have to put up with incompetence. If you will get your degree and go out in the marketplace and sell your brilliance without riding the taxpayers backs;I salute you but I don't think that is what you have in mind.

Well, let me just explain a little something to you. Just because you get that "FINE" degree from LMU doens't always mean you are going to get the pay that you want too. I have several friends that graduated in the social work program before it became accredited. They were promised that when the Social Work program became accredited that their degrees would be, "Grandfathered In," and their degree would be as good as what the students who would later graduate with a Social Work degree that was accredited. Well, let me just tell you the way it is. That was bull ****! They have the same degree that they were given when they received their diploma. I know two of those students, one that got the degree before accreditation and one after. They both work for the goverment doing the exact same job. The one with the accredited degree is paid twice the amount that the other graduate is paid. Several of those students were not even lucky enought to get a job in the social work field. I know one that delivers pizza, one that took a course and made a real estate agent, and one that cooks meat for a local grocery store. And not only this, these students that did take the classes learned later that most of the classes that they took, they didn't even need. We will count them for electives their advisor would say. You only need so many electives. That was ridiculous. They should have to give those students a refund at least on those classes. I wasn't a social work major. But, like I said several of my friends were and this wasn't fair to them then. And is sure as **** isn't fair to them now. So think again about bad mouthing those poor educated souls working for what they should be satisfied to earn. Minimum wage. You might be like them too. Who knows when you earn your degree at LMU. I left there after my close friends graduated and I went to UT. So, that should explain that my job is the job of your dreams!!!!Making $45.00 / hour. Best wish and my best advice to you...Run toward the south and leave that so called college.

Let me tell you a few things about working at DeRoyal. I worked there for many years and to thank me for my service they put me on unemployment for no fault of my own (their own words). I learned a lot in my years there, skills and experience that will always be with me, for that I am grateful. But, tt was not easy, it was not fair, and I didn't even know how bad it was until I got a good job. You see, I have learned that there are employers who actually respect employees, supervisors and directors who are not just trying to climb that corporate ladder and don't care who they step on along the way, and employers who actually treat people fairly, equally and don't show favoritism. WHO KNEW???

There are some truly evil people at DeRoyal. My wish for Pete is that he would have his “eyes opened” to see how these folks truly are treating people and that he would care. But that kind of treatment is obviously rewarded at DeRoyal for it keeps happening, it keeps getting worse, and the people doling it out get promoted into higher positions. I resent the fact that the company is sending work off shore and paying those people such pitiful wages, while putting people here at home out of jobs, the very people who helped his company get off the ground by working hard for low wages. The jobs lost here, while not good paying jobs, were the best some of the employees could get and now they have nothing. Those employees were loyal and faithful and respected him, at least until they say him throw a fit or two, yelling, kicking, cursing at people. Respect goes out the door real quick once you have seen that. If he truly wanted to make a difference and help people before he leaves this world (as he was quoted in the Knoxville newspaper to say) then he could stop some of the unfair treatment, control his own temper in public, lift the “top out” of wages - how in the world can you say working there for many years is topped out and never give them a pay raise, loyalty should be worth something, with the cost of living going up daily and currently at the speed of light. He is making money and he could share some of that with his employees and help them to buy gas to get to work, pay their insurance, etc. He would “make a difference”, and he would be respected but he would not get his name in the news, I guess we can see what his real goals are. I could write a book on the things I saw and experienced while working there, but I am trying to put that all behind me and move on to better things. Besides I’m not sure that book would ever sell, it does not have a happy ending.

Oh yeah, as for Gary Burchett, he doesn’t deserve the energy it would take for me to express my feelings about him. I truly hope he gets what he deserves one day. I would like to see him suffer like he has made others suffer before he leaves this world.

As for Gary, he does what Pete tells him too. He wouldnt even be on the board of trustees if it wasnt for Pete. Because, Gary and his daughter was told to never come back on campus. But, Pete needed Gary back at LMU to help do his dirty work. Gary acts like a saint. Boy, is he far from it. I would not be in his shoes to sit there each sunday morning pretending to be ready to fly away doing his (EMOTIONAL) devotional.
As for Pete. He could care less about his employees at DeRoyal. He has gone to LMU to take over now and has who hired that he wants and who fired that he doent want there. They are both just a big joke. HAHA!! PETE and GARY!!!! If the old saying is true that your ears burn when someone is talking about you. Man, I bet theirs stay red hot...

It is common knowledge that social work students were lied to and their money taken and their futures destroyed by LMU. What I don't understand is why these students stand for such treatment. Why don't the social work students who were promised accredited degrees join together and take legal action against LMU.All of you paid your money, studied hard, took subjects unrelated to the final accreditation standards and can't get a job in which you can make a living.If you will join together and fight this injustice you can get justice in court. You have a multitude of witnesses that you were promised accredited degrees. If I had been deceived out of my tuition and my future I would make every effort to get justice.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! !!!! Ya'll crack me up. Do ya'll really have nothing else to do than sit around and talk about someone that you are obviously jealous of. Pete is an amazing person with amazing wisdom. I have worked hand in hand with Pete for some time now and he has truly taken me under his wing and helped me tremendously. I have worked very hard for Pete and earned his respect by proving that I cared about the things he needed done. Just because he doesn't "like" everyone he comes across is no reason to crucify him. Last time I checked not everyone likes everybody. He is a very successful business man who has worked very hard for all that he has. I think ya'll need to get over yourselves and mind your own business. Just because he is well-known does not mean we should point out all of his faults. We all have faults.

Seriously, at least the people working at DeRoyal have jobs. Without those factories in this area there would be many people without jobs. The people that work for him get paid more then most people at McDonalds...so why does it matter if they like it or not? its bringing food home to their families.

LMU has come a long way in the past few years. Pete has a lot to do with that. Harrogate should be proud to have a new medical school and a growing university. Pete could have easily put his time and effort into a school in VA. Don't put down someone who has worked hard to help this area. For some reason people who try to help are always the ones who get talked about. Is the moral of the story "Tend to your own and that way no one will talk badly about you."? I don't think that is the way God intended.
