Community searching for solutions at Shawnee Community College

Posted: Updated:

ULLIN -- The controversy continues at Shawnee Community College between school leaders and some of the faculty members.

This comes as educators and community members criticize President Dr. Peggy Bradford for her leadership and spending. Meantime, the school administration maintains it's doing its part to help students.

Tia Whitaker, a sophomore getting ready to graduate and transfer, hopes to see less division.

"I'm just hoping that they can come together, come to some resolution because like this is not going to be good for the students at all if they just keep going back and forth like that," Whitaker said.

Two weeks ago at a board meeting, the Shawnee College Education Association issued a vote of no confidence in Dr. Bradford.

Here is the latest statement released by Dr. Bradford.

The next board meeting is on May 7th.
