ASU SGA President Asks For Resignation Of Trustees Elton Dean And Marvin Wiggins
From Montgomery -- Alabama State University's Student Government Association wants two of the university's top board of trustee members to resign. They say their leadership has damaged the university's credibility.
SGA President, Darren Dubose, sent a letter to ASU trustees, Elton Dean and Marvin Wiggins saying their "actions are tearing away at the credibility of ASU" and are "negatively affecting students, staff and alumni."
Alabama State University's Student Government Association is stepping in after the university received three accreditation downgrades within the last several months. In a letter to board chairman, Elton Dean, and vice chairman, Marvin Wiggins, SGA President Darren Dubose asks the trustees for their immediate resignations.
"I feel, though, as if the Board of Trustees in this particular leadership that they did not handle the situation properly, so embarrassment is the correct word," Said Dubose.
Dubose says he wants the trustees to submit their resignations in by this Friday to Governor Bentley. Unless Dean and Wiggins decide to quit, it's the governor's decision whether to take action.
SGA members tell us if Dean and Wiggins do not resign, they have a plan of action. But they would not elaborate on what that would be.
