I don't think anyone that knows the real story of anything to do with EKU is very happy. Luckily the public never knows much!

As the place tanks more and more of responsibility will fall upon EKU. A huge success would make it a real happy collaboration with EKU mentioned from time to time.

Bullying? Sure, that happens. Deb is familiar with bullying, too. Stepped hugely out of line from day one and who will be paying for her folly? EKU.

If EKU sees the CPA as a money pit they have a real interest in controlling personnel. Besides, I am sure that Skip would do a fine job... or maybe even Harry to the rescue.

Could always just give the keys to the Greek organizations.

Board of Regents, Center Board, Presidents and Directors. Everybody just needs to GROW UP.

Sounds pretty weird even for EKU. Why does that happen.

Time for Whitlock to go. He has hired Skippy back, he spends too much time traveling to New York and has forgotten that he needs to spend more in in Kentucky recruiting students. He was decent enough for interm president but out of his league as full time president. Fire Whitlock.

While not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, another hire by EKU that is their fault. There are many that are just as bad and still employed. The point is the way in which this was handled, just like everything else, was a disaster.

Who in their right mind that is worth a damn would come run a place that has been through two directors since its inception? No one...when you think it can't get worse watch out...it always does with the choices made.

I guess she should have understood to tow the line or take her ass home.

But with crap like this:

"Despite an eloquent defense of Ms. Hoskins by Harry Moberly, Kent Clark and other local citizens on the board". If Kent Clark wants her, then what other reason do you need to toss her ass out.

Me, since reading the above in the paper, I am glad she is gone.
Pissing contest

It appears that there is a pissing contest going on here. Eastern has there yes men on the board...what a joke. Harry Moberly appears to be the only leader in the group. I say make him president of the University. Fire Doug, Whitt, and Skip. What value are they to the university?
