Morgan State board needs a new chairman

Colleges and UniversitiesMorgan State University

After 23 years of service, I believe it's time for the chairman of the Board of Regents at Morgan State University, Dallas Evans, to retire. I question his chairmanship and question his ability to move Morgan forward!

His letter delivered to the other regents regarding Morgan State President David Wilson ("Morgan president has "severely compromised" university, board chair alleges," Jan 11) alarms me. I question whether your his opinion regarding Mr. Wison will affect his ability to lead and to make effective policies for the success of Morgan.

Twenty-three years ago when Mr. Evans became a member of the Board of Regents, Morgan was on the path of becoming the institution that it is now. Mr. Evans deserves credit for that success. However, the university is ready to move forward into the 21st century, and the leadership for my alma mater must put their negative options aside and work together as a whole with the vision of making Morgan the greatest institution in Maryland.
