We want President George E. Cooper to stay as President of South Carolina State University
The Students, Alumni and Friends of South Carolina State University would like Faculty, Staff and The Board of Trustees know that we as a University do not approve of the decision of letting our President George E. Cooper step down from the University. Dr. George E. Cooper is doing an amazing job as president, he is connecting students and alumni, helping reunite our fellow HBCUs and making many students feel that the University is our home away from home. His open door policy and his constant support of student activities have proven that he is for the students and cares about our development to become productive members of society.
On another note we would like the Governor of South Carolina to take a closer look at the Board of Trustees. In the last five years we have lost two presidents, on the verge on losing the second with Dr. Cooper, but the same board remains the same....
The problem does not seem to be with the President it has to be something wrong with the Board of Trustees that needs to be looked at further.
We want President George E. Cooper to remain home where he belongs, here at South Carolina State University.
