LeMoyne-Owen College board considers fate of school president

The LeMoyne-Owen College board of trustees met Monday to discuss the future of current school president Dr. Andrea Miller.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) The LeMoyne-Owen College board of trustees met Monday to discuss the future of current school president Dr. Andrea Miller.

Miller has been embroiled in controversy during her three-year tenure. Last year she was accused of plagiarizing a speech originally given by Pastor Joel Osteen. Video showed Miller presenting the speech nearly word for word to the pastor’s during a college assembly.

A vote of no confidence brought on calls for Miller’s resignation by faculty and students. The board meeting ended hours ago on the south Memphis campus, and we’re still waiting to hear what decision will be made regarding Miller’s future leadership of LeMoyne-Owen College.
