I'm glad he had the nads to cancel it. The candidates were not viable, especially for WSSU. I believe the next search committee will have to be more open minded about the candidates. What were they looking for in an AD Oldram?
The general theme was "someone good at fund raising."
Then they pick those three as the finalists out of all the applications they received? The person geographically closest to WSSU knew nothing about the school.
The alumni et. al, also wanted that, but prefer that Rams be given priority in their thinking. There are many alumni, including myself, who at minimum will have the passion needed to sell WSSU to non-participants.
