Presidency Through Surrogates: Make Angela Henderson de facto President, and Insure Wayne Watson's continued Influence
While we try to avoid dealing in rumors on this forum, I have to say that one name is surfacing fairly frequently when people talk about the possible replacement for President Calhoun: Cecil Lucy, Interim VP of Administration and Finance, MAC member and stalwart ally of Angela Henderson and Renee Mitchell. With the caveat that this information is not independently verified, what might it mean? First, Mr. Lucy has absolutely no experience or qualifications that would recommend him as a good choice to lead any university, especially one suffering the misery of Chicago State. Second, since he has no experience or qualifications, who will actually be running the show here? My suggestion is that when Mr. Lucy speaks, it will actually be Angela Henderson talking. Third, taking this thought to its logical conclusion, when Angela Henderson speaks, it is actually Wayne Watson talking. So why didn't our Board simply bring the former President back for another disastrous turn? Is the destruction of Chicago State not yet complete?
