Yep hearing some theft took place at the hotel by some members of the Boom . However they aren't students nor registered and not covered under the university liability policy

This is what is being reported.  What can someone steal out of a hotel room these days???

How did I miss this topic? :lol:

Just to clear a few things up:

1. The stealing rumor was not true. It mainly stemmed from one of those HBCU Band beef groups on Facebook. About 40 of us Charlotte alums spent the entire weekend with the band from the time they arrived at Vance HS until they left Charlotte on Sunday.

2.  Sanford, the interim Direcotr of Bands, was rightfully terminated. He was on the "hit list for a while for a number of reasons but him knowingly allowing 80 students who had not completed registration to travel to Charlotte was the nail in the coffin. Several other department heads were reprimanded.

3.  None of us are sad Sanford is gone. He had no interest for our program. He was basically a hookup hire from Myers. He did some shady things to get Dowell Taylor moved out the way and he stepped in back in 2015. The new president has been...cleaning house of Myers' folks. Once President Bynum found out a few things, he immediately contacted Dowell Tayor to return to his rightful position was Director of Bands.
