This man has done nothing but drove our organization to the edge of the cliff and jumped out.

The very first meeting he had with KHESLC staff in Louisville was in a borrower church sanctuary where he proceeded to CUSS, right in the house of God.

He destroyed the Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program.

Had 2 or 3 massive staff layoff, and didn't even have the guts to show his face those days.

EIGHT (8) of his senior leadership either quit, retired or transferred, in 1 years time.

You don't have a scheduled board meeting and have your CEO announce his retirement, and his last day be the same day, and be escorted out of the building....

We have always celebrated retirements with a going retirement party, this was a forced retirement or be fired.

Time to bring in the auditors office, I agree with the post above, could be Richie Farmer JR, with an open checkbooks.
