Keep the Pillar
Petition Summary: Ms. Vikita Bell Hardwrick, who has served for twenty-two years as the Director of Admissions at Henderson State University, is one of the most influential members of the HSU campus community. Administration has decided to replace Ms. Hardwrick, who we refer to as the Pillar, with a new hire as an associate provost of enrollment. In prior years, Ms. Vikita has requested a new enrollment management program to better enhance the enrollment of the university; That was rejected due to lack of funding. Administration finds funds for what they feel are important. Henderson does have an enrollment problem caused by lack of support for student organizations, Greek life, poor communication and zero trust between students and administration. Removing the Pillar from our university will not only cause a drastic decline in enrollment, but will destroy the HSU campus community.
Action Petitioned For: We, the undersigned, are concerned students, alumni, faculty, staff, and members of the community who urge our leaders to act now to keep Ms. Vikita Bell Hardwrick as the Director of Admissions.
