when someone is under investigation by their job,
or the feds,
the outcome usually leads to the truth.
if someone is innocent,
a statement is released and things go on as normal.
when someone is guilty tho,
so there seems to be a conclusion in the dr. kevin rome scandal at fisk.
as you know,
he was accused of being dl and messy as the president of the university.
( x read about it here )
the alleged victim within the scandal even joined the chat.
Fisk University is once again searching for a new president after severing ties with Kevin Rome, who came under scrutiny this month due to an allegation that he threatened a man.
The university announced Rome’s departure Monday, two weeks after Rome was put on leave due to the pending court matters. Provost Vann Newkirk will serve as interim president.
“Fisk University has ended its relationship with Dr. Kevin D. Rome, Sr.,” the university said in a statement. “The University thanks Dr. Rome for his service as president of Fisk and wishes the very best to him and his family.”
Rome did not respond to a voicemail or email Monday requesting comment.
i think he snatched all his social medias down too.
if this was all lies,
his name would have been cleared and he’d have his position back.
if he was claiming innocence,
he would be screaming it from the rooftops.
this is the era of “blm” so this would be perfect timing to protest your job.
now it could happen so we shall see,
but whatever evidence was presented was damaging enough for his firing.
folks gotta be careful how they move when they get into higher positions.
the scallywag behavior has to cease and dismiss.
if you happen to be dl,
you need to figure out who is messy by their red flags,
but also realize your own red flags within yourself as well.
once your bad behavior gets put on the table,
it will be a bitch to your reputation for future employment.
this whole story with dr. kevin rome was wild af.
you’d think a president of a university would move a lot different.
he is so well spoken.
you’d never think he had this accused dark side.
he needs to take this time to figure his life out.
lowkey: this needs to be discussed too…
Rome’s departure after three years continues a trend of unusually high turnover at the helm of the historically Black university. Leaders initially hoped Rome would stay for a decade or longer.
why is there such a high turnover rate at this hbcu?
