WSSUinsider – We pull back the curtain and show you what the "wizard" known as DJ is really doing

A wake up call like no other……

Filed under: Uncategorized — wssuinsider @ 8:53 AM

From the mail bag – a note from the Admin. These are not our words, these are the words of a concerned person who is deeply involved with the campus.

Message follows:

Black lawmakers should be ashamed of themselves;  they are part of the problem at HBCU’s.  Less not forget about the inept members of the Board of Trustees at HBCUs.  They are not intelligent enough to question the state of affairs at these institution.  Reports of problems are ALWAYS viewed as an attack rather than a call to resolve the existing problems.  For example, Ed Hanes turned WSSU purchase of Bowman Gray Stadium into a racial issue rather than using his UNC law degree to decipher the truth.  Black lawmakers should  fix the problems at these institutions or step aside and allow the WHITE MAN to do so.

First, Elizabeth City State University.  Next, WSSU!  Wake up WSSU COWARDS who have been hiding in the shadows and permitting the Reaves administration to bankrupt WSSU.  Guess what?!  If WSSU closes, most employees will be jobless.  Wake Forest or Forsyth Tech will obtain the nursing school.  Or a for-profit university will purchase the entire campus from the state.  Most WSSU employees will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER  find a comparable job/salary.

Winston-Salem State University WILL be the next NC HBCU under consideration for closing.  While the Board of Trustees is praising the former chancellor, Donald Reaves, naming campus buildings in his honor and giving him an honorary degree, WSSU has been annually losing students.  Reaves has boasted of increasing graduation rates even though there has been no such increase.  He has likewise boasted of an increase in student retention, however, it has been shown that grade inflation and grade changes account for this so-call success.  The truth of the matter regarding graduation rates is that WSSU could no longer afford two graduation ceremonies each year.  Reaves and his sidekick Brenda Allen decided on one graduation in the month of May.  This May graduation includes fall, spring, and the previous summer graduates.

Administration has projected a loss of more than 900 students during the 2014-2015 academic year.  The UNC Board granted Brenda Allen permission to create a super college renamed the College of Arts, Sciences, Business, and Education with her hand selected hire Corey Walker, a Brown University affirmative action baby, serving as dean.  Her reasoning was initially based on saving money and subsequently based on the projected drop in enrollment to avoid declaring financial exigency.  She is too naive to know that the UNC Board’s approval creates a record and timeline of fiscal and other problems at WSSU.  Conversely, she thinks she was victorious against the opposition.

Reaves has issued his resignation that is effective December 31, 2014;  maybe a psychic knows why he didn’t leave immediately. Thomas Ross, UNC System President, recently appointed the persons who have bankrupted WSSU to serve on a committee responsible for selecting Reaves replacement, and WSSU COWARDS remained silent.  Brenda Allen is already celebrating.

WSSU is figuratively BURNING and no one is attempting to put out the fire!  It is time for WSSU employees to issue a vote of NO CONFIDENCE against the current administration AND Board of Trustees to save our beloved WSSU.

More money problems at WSSU?

Nothing like an efficient HR department…..

Filed under: Uncategorized — wssuinsider @ 10:16 AM

And the incompetency at the senior levels of the campus just keep showing themselves. Today, Ivan Foster takes the stage!!

From the mail bag from the past couple of weeks, several notes from people who applied for jobs at WSSU, in some cases YEARS ago, getting notes for jobs they applied to have been cancelled. YEARS later, well after they had even remembered that they applied!!

Like this one (positions redacted to protect the source):

Subject: Your Application to Winston-Salem State University
> Dear Applicant,
> This notice is to inform you that the position for which you applied,
>  ****************************  in the *********** department, has been canceled and will not be filled at this time.
> We appreciate your interest in a job with Winston-Salem State University and
> encourage you to apply for another position of interest to you through our
> jobs portal at
> Thank you.
> Human Resources Department

For this one, it was 6 years after they had applied. That’s what we call efficiency!!

And this from the mail bag…..

Filed under: Uncategorized — wssuinsider @ 11:05 AM

ha..ha.ha…momma says what happens in the dark will come to the light….these people are a MESS…
let me tell u Davis is NOT lying. All course registration dates for that semester should have been ‘Jun 23, 2012 to Aug 31, 2012′ and course dates of ‘Aug 20, 2012 – Dec 03, 2012 ‘ after reading this post I pulled the information from WSSU’s system of record Banner…and here’s what I found;

Independent Study- INSTRUCTOR’S PERMISSION REQUIRED – 93904 – POS 4330 – 02

Associated Term: Fall 2012
Registration Dates: Jun 23, 2012 to Oct 17, 2012
Levels: Undergraduate

Class TBA TBA Oct 16, 2012 – Dec 06, 2012 Independent Study Olethia Davis (P)E-mail

Child, this course was not created until about Oct 16, 2012 almost 2 months into the course, and know there is no record of Burke teaching the class ironically they have Davis as the instructor. The key to knowing that something is SHADY is that the ‘Registration Dates’ and ‘Class Dates’ are out of whack…. Banner works ya’ll…BUSTED,,,so much for compliance

Tom Ross takes over the WSSU Chancellor’s Search Process

Filed under: Uncategorized — wssuinsider @ 9:31 AM

University of North Carolina System, President Tom Ross met with the 20 member committee and three search firms who had applied for bids in the search process. Loudmouth you know who told friends that the Chicago Firm connected with DJ was disqualified.


Now we are waiting to see what questions will be asked of the candidates and whether or not these questions will be given ahead of time to selected candidates like they did during the Provost search. The gang of five, Burke, Johnson, Miller, Henderson and a Dean representative, Valentine would likely create a block vote in order to continue their stay at WSSU. We hope Tom Ross keeps an eye on this one and not be fooled like Erskine Bowles was during the last search. During this search Kevin Myatt colluded with some members of the search committee to please his former boss Guy to pay back a favor on behalf of candidate Reaves (see Erskine Bowles revelation in previous postings).


It would be difficult for the gang of five to trump the vote of the other 15 members but we will keep you inform as to who these members are and what has been their past record. We hope that Professor Felder remains neutral in this search since he has had a sweet relationship with Donald Reaves. Very much like Subash Shah who should have recused himself from the search process.

WSSU Sexual Assault on the Rise

Filed under: Uncategorized — wssuinsider @ 9:31 AM

In the last three months, the WSSU campus community has been informed of men lurking in the women’s residential halls and posing a high risk of sexual assault. Even cameras with poor resolution cannot be used to identify offenders. We urge parents to demand more police surveillance and demand from Pat Norris more accountability  from campus police officers who have been unable to apprehend the offenders.


“Campus Police responded to Wilson Hall on a reported attempted sexually assault. A female student went to a friend’s room in Wilson Hall were the door was left unlocked for her to enter. Once inside, she went to an interior room without turning on the lights. When she closed the door a male suspect grabbed her from the rear, threw her on a bed and attempted to unfasten her pants.  The student stated she was kicking and screaming for help when his phone rang and he left the room.  The student was not physically injured.

The suspect is described as a black male with facial hair. He was wearing a dark hoodie and dark pants.”

Bowman Gray Stadium in Jeopardy

Filed under: Uncategorized — wssuinsider @ 9:28 AM

Winston-Salem State University purchase of Bowman Grey has slowed to a crawl as both parties wait for state approval of the deal, the Winston-Salem Journal reports. DJ anxious to take his three-month vacation wants this deal to go through. Sources have indicated that legislators are carefully looking at the WSSU financial situation. As you may recall in a previous posting, WSSU is unable to collect over 900 overdue tuition accounts. Carolynn Berry begged advisors to ask students to pay. As you may recall, Donald Reaves required all freshmen and sophomores to stay on campus and charge them exorbitant prices for room and board. The cost of eating a meal has escalated and a can of soda that costs $1.75.  Hundreds of beds are empty because enrollment has declined dramatically.   Once again, WSSU students and families continue to pay the escalating cost of poor decisions made by Donald Reaves. The maintenance of the Donald Julian  Reaves Student Center , aka Student Center continues to escalate because WSSU is bankrupt. The attempt to buy a stadium at the same time that he claims that reorganization will save a million dollars has completely come to a halt. Legislators are now assessing whether Fuzzy projections about revenues and whether or not car races will continue to be held I at the stadium . Ask Donald Reaves who is retiring to show that our sons and daughters are safe in the residential halls. This was he cannot blame on Harold Martin!

Faculty Senate Rejects Reorganization

Filed under: Uncategorized — wssuinsider @ 9:26 AM

Faculty Senate rejects reorganization approved by WSSU Trustees and BOG. Tom Ross acknowledges concerns but does not do anything about it.


“We, the Faculty Senators of WSSU, ask that during the April 11, 2014 meeting the BOG table the WSSU restructuring motion so that the faculty at WSSU is permitted to voice their advice on the matter. We acknowledge that indeed WSSU faculty was never included in the discussion of the issue.”


The results of the vote were as follows, with 22 votes needed for quorum:


Yeas = 18

Nays  =   3

Abstentions = 3

Dr. Kovalik,


Thank you for sharing the faculty resolution.  As you know, the Board of Governors met yesterday in committees and today in full session.  The school restructuring proposal received from the WSSU Board of Trustees passed the Board of Governors in committee yesterday and in full session today.

Anatomy of Lies and Fabrication at WSSU. Is this the reason for Hayes and Reaves early retirement?

Filed under: Uncategorized — wssuinsider @ 11:20 AM

Hayes wrote that Johnson entered the restroom to blow his nose and wash his hands when several VSU players asked him to confirm that he was the Rams’ starting quarterback.  Really, the opposing team did not know who Johnson was? Does Hayes know when people blow their noses in the bathroom?

WSSU Head Football Coach Connell Maynor wrote in a memo to Carpenter that Maynor didn’t have any first-hand knowledge of what happened in the restroom. How did Hayes know what happened in the bathroom? Maynor told the truth! 

“The last thing that was told to our players prior to getting off the bus was not to engage in any conversation with the opposing team, coaches or staff,” Maynor wrote. So why did you invite them to the campus? So why didn’t Hayes accompany Johnson to the bathroom? 

James Anderson, the chancellor of Fayetteville State University, emailed Reaves after the news conference, pointing out that Reaves didn’t tell reporters about VSU Head Football Coach Latrell Scott’s criminal record. In the email, Anderson also asked why does (VSU president) Keith (Miller) allow this notion of only one attacker keep floating around?” James Anderson wanted a piece of the action; wondering why since Anderson never had any respect for Reaves? Anderson avoided Reaves him as a pariah during  since he landed at Fayetteville. What did Anderson have against Mr. Scott? Sounds like a personal vendetta unbecoming of a chancellor of the UNC System. Fayetteville Community be careful what Anderson writes about you!

In Petersburg, Va., VSU Athletic Director Peggy Davis received a Nov. 15 email from Candace Stowe, an administrative assistant in the city’s attorney office in Winston-Salem. Stowe wrote that she is a WSSU alumna, and her two children graduated from VSU. Was Candace using city’s e-mail to engage in this melee? Ask the City’s Attorney to check Stowe’s use of e-mail. She probably received a chain e-mail from Ravonda Dalton-Rann

On Nov. 19, Miller sent an email to a receiver whose name was redacted. Miller wrote that five CIAA football coaches and the daughter of the president of St. Augustine’s College in Raleigh attended the Nov. 15 banquet at WSSU and supports Scott’s account of what happened in the melee. Witnesses that Reaves did not interview!

 I could not believe that he had the audacity to refer to our coach as a ‘criminal’ and make disparaging remarks about our school and student body.”But Reaves did that, it’s his nature.

On that same day, VSU alumnus Franklin Stowe sent an email to state Reps. Ed Hanes and Evelyn Terry and state Sen. Earline Parmon, all Forsyth County Democrats, criticizing the legislators for the harsh statements they made about the VSU’s football team for its role in the Nov. 15 melee. These are petty politicians trying to drum u p votes among WSSU alumni.

Franklin Stowe: “For you all to make references to ‘thuggery’ and implicate him (Britt) with being ‘dubious’ is absolutely unacceptable,” Stowe wrote. “As black political leaders, you should be the first to understand that the last thing this young man and my university needs is negative publicity. Your rhetoric in the press release referring to my university was undoubtedly unbecoming of blacks in our community.” Very well stated Mr. Stowe, Reaves is a Thug!

“I was not in the bathroom,” Reaves wrote. “But Rudy Johnson told me that he was attacked by five or six VSU players and I believe him.”  Since when do you believe anyone, you only listen to the voices inside your head.

Lewis wrote: “I could not believe that he had the audacity to refer to our coach as a ‘criminal’ and make disparaging remarks about our school and student body.” He does that all the time including his own staff.

Anonymous whistle blower: “I want you to be aware that according to internal sources, this was not the case of five Virginia (State) students lurking in a bathroom to attack a WSSU student. This altercation began in the room with exchange of words and then the hormones took over — “let’s take it outside.” Indeed, this is the real true story!
