Sometimes standing up for what is right has a price… especially when you do so under the nose of uber-social-promotion hacks like Michael Powell.
The College of William and Mary president Gene Nichol resigned Tuesday morning amid 16 months of controversy over a sex show scandal.
The Board of Visitors for the institution decided not to renew his contract.
His tenure at William & Mary is the shortest since the Civil War in school’s history. Nichol has been president of the College since 2005. Prior to his presidency at the College, he was the dean of the law school at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.
Michael Powell, the rector of the College’s Board of Visitors, informed Nichol of the decision Sunday after the Charter Day celebrations. (source)
I wish the First of the First Amendment Bad Asses, Gene Nichol, happiness and prosperity in his future endeavors — and the exact opposite to the scumbags on William & Mary’s board of visitors. Boy, I’m glad I didn’t go there for law school.
