You are kidding right? I'm definitely missing your point with that statement. You may be confusing what Obrie Smith President Board of Directors of North Carolina A&T University Foundation, Inc. a position Hoard formely held (hint, hint).
North Carolina A&T State University Bond Projects Project Value
Classroom and Laboratory Complex $29,920,700
General Classroom - Phase III $7,157,675
Three Classroom Buildings (Dudley Phase III) - Comprehensive Renovation $1,200,000
Before David took his position A&T was only raising about 1 million a year, since David took the position we have been raising right at 12 million a year, and that is a fact.
Strange, I remember the Chancellor saying at Annual Chancellor Dinner during Homecoming that last year was the first time the Annual Giving Campaign exceeded $1million, which would mean another $11,000,000 is from non-alumni contributors. That would be truly impressive. Surely a factual number as impressive as that ($12,000,000) is supported in some University publication. Please provide a link.
Since there was no action from this interim dude concerning last week's ridiculous headline about A&T, count on him to coast through the school year with no problems. This dude will also work overtime to make sure that there are no "what he calls" embarrassments on his watch. Be forewarn don't say "Aggie Pride" too loud around this interim cat.
It normally takes a year or even more for most of the UNC system schools to pick a Chancellor. You want the absolute right person to lead. It took a year to find Renick. He wasn't perfect but he was by far the best chancellor this school has ever had.
I hope the board and the search folks take their time and find someone that will keep the momentum he started going or even kick it up another notch. Otherwise we could rush into something and end up with someone like Hackney long term.
No thanks. I'll wait.
