You are an idiot. Spend your prayers for the millions of starving orphans in the world. Shut your nasty pie hole and keep your religion fairy tales to yourself.

Karen is beginning to figure things out at MSU.

It will be interesting to observe.

I "heard" many things. Good and BAD. Never personally had a problem with anyone except Judy Jennings. Now she's a real piece of work.

I know Karen personally and I think that she is a pretty good person.It sounds like that there are some very jealous people making comments about something they think they know.She has 2 masters degrees and I wonder how many that are posting can come even close. I will say good luck Karen because it sounds like the barracudas are after you.

Perhaps, it was the transfer ownership from HCA to Light Point. Light Point is really set up to serve the non-urban population. If that is correct, it may be that the company wanted to put a better face on its operations vs. HCA, from which Light Point was spun out.

Anyone hired in Nursing since September to help with the accreditation problems is likely to be fired. MSU purposely hires good people, denies them actual support and resources, then fires them when things happen so they can say they `took care of the problem.' Your time will come, Karen.
What a smartass

Forgive me, I did not mean to imply Karen was valuable or good, so much as it is the same `modus operandi' the school goes through when a problem they have known about and covered up is found out. MSU hires people in positions of faculty and deans, leads them to believe they will get support for making changes, then does nothing until the University is backed into a corner. They fire someone visible to staff and faculty (like Drs. Halle and France) and claim that MSU is on the road to change. No, I am in no way defending Karen.

I hope that she is a strong willed woman. Some changes need to take place in the health science department, starting with Debra Campbell. Hopeful the new dean can take Mrs. Campbell down off of her high horse. Someone needs to check into the way she treats the students and staff there! Mrs. Campbell's "ruling" leadership has went on far too long...hopefully the new dean can see Mrs. Campbell really is!!

Everyone knows Debra is fake. She hates working under Bill White and will eventually crack. She could care less about anything but her paycheck.

They are hiding the pass rate (first time) numbers and there are many problems.

This is part of the poor management of MSU>

Must more to come.

I know her very well. She will never put up with William White or Roslyn Artis over a long period of time. She is likes the CEO title and telling others not being told what to do.

Both of these individuals are way too emotional. She will not tolerate this in the long run.

It was never a good place to work to start with.

Bowling will not last a year at MSU. She is looking just like the rest. She will not put up with Bill White.

She is the ruler of her ship. She will not take it long!!!!!

The days are ticking away.
