It has been my pleasure to serve as a Trustee at Cedarville University, my alma mater, since 2013.
I’ve watched with delight and wonder as the University has grown and lived out its mission – “for the Word of God and the Testimony of Jesus Christ” – under the leadership of Dr. Thomas White.
However, the events surrounding the hiring of Dr. Anthony Moore and the execution of his restoration plan were deeply troubling. I’m thankful the Trustees took the appropriate steps of conducting a third-party investigation to examine the impact on students and the hiring process. I rejoice that no students were affected.
Today the Board of Trustees issued a statement outlining a summary of the findings and steps related to the reinstatement of Dr. Thomas White. Unfortunately, I could not support this direction. I do not believe these steps are sufficient in light of what the report revealed.
As a result, I have resigned as a Trustee of Cedarville University effective today, June 26, 2020. I only wish the Lord’s blessing for Dr. Thomas White, the Trustees, and Cedarville University. I will continue to pray to that end.
