TUSKEGEEANS - URGENT!!!!!!!!!
« on: August 18, 2007, 11:48:00 PM »
"All,

It is with deep regret that I inform you that Iolantha Spencer made her transition earlier today. We have lost a diligent daughter and many of us have lost a friend. I have known ‘Lantha since our days in the Golden Voices back in the early 70s as well as being a soror. As most of you know, she was Exec. Dir. of the athletic assn as well as on the HOF committee, taught Freshman Orientation, AKA advisor and had her finger on everything going on on the yard involving the students.

Let us be in prayer for her mother, her family and ourselves. When I last spoke to her Aug 7, she was telling me she had planned a huge birthday party for her mother for today. She gave no inkling that in 10 days she would be gone. As soon as funeral details are available, I‘ll let you know. I am in such a state of shock I can barely type...

I am so sorry to hear this.  I have known her since I was a little kid.  She was a good friend of my mom‘s.  I will be praying for her family.

"I have been in shock every since I found out.
She and my husband were high school classmates and she and I had been friends for many years, as well as sorors. There was truly noone like Iolantha. I will miss her so much.
  :(    :(  
I am keeping her family and the Tuskegee University Family in my prayers."

Iolantha was my classmate - 1975.  May her soul rest in peace.  She was TI/TU to the core.

Iolantha and I were junior high and high school classmates and we were very close and I am in a state of chock to hear of here passing I will fly home to pay my respect so Golden Kitten let us know when the funeral is. I last talk with her in Macon Ga. at the FVSU game she came over and gave me a big hug and we talk for a while my heart is hurting I think she was every body friend.

I got the call from my sister who was in Skegee working with the Piperettes and Lynn. I can remember Iolantha working with the late Coach Holbert and the womens tennis team. Without a doubt she will be missed on the Tuskegee campus and community. Rest in peace Iolantha

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
