Kentucky State University president resigns

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky State University President M. Christopher Brown II has resigned.

Brown submitted his resignation to the board of regents, effective immediately, at a Tuesday morning meeting.

The board immediately went into closed session Tuesday morning for two items, one discussing “litigation”, and the other, a matter discussing either the appointment, discipline, or dismissal of a personnel member.

After the closed session, Brown announced his resignation, which the board unanimously accepted, with two absences.

Brown’s resignation comes amid several lawsuits. Some board members have gone to the governor’s office with budget concerns.

The board also voted unanimously, with two absences, to appoint Clara Ross Stamps as the acting president, who has been with the university since 2017. She says that progress is what she wants to focus on and building a better Kentucky State University.

“Let me just say this, that I truly understand the strength of Kentucky State University,” Ross Stamps said. “It is the people, our students, our alumni, our faculty, our staff, and our students, and all of those people who love and respect Kentucky State University.”

The board also appointed Gregory Rush as the new CFO and tabled a motion to hire an external auditor to take a look at the current financial situation of the university.

After Coach Prime was hired, this guy had the nerve to pen an op-ed, open letter to play JSU again in Indianapolis. He should have been focused on those finances.

I wonder if a background check was completed being that he resigned from Alcorn State University when they were being investigated by the state before he was hired at Kentucky State.

Unfortunately, he will end up being President at another HBCU because our schools love to recycle bad leadership.

Unfortunately, this is a likely scenario.

I watched most of his interview on HBCU Digest with Jarrett Carter Sr. Heard alot of double talk and excuse making mostly at the Board.
