Morehouse College says report of presidents early ouster is false

A Morehouse College spokeswoman denied a news report that its president was fired Monday.

HBCU Digest reported Monday night that the college’s president, John S. Wilson, had been dismissed and the college’s chief operating officer, William “Bill” Taggart will manage Morehouse’s day-to-day operations.

“Dr. Wilson is still the president of Morehouse College,” Aileen Dodd, a spokeswoman for the college, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Tuesday morning. “The report is erroneous.”

The report was based on a letter the news site said was written Monday by Robert Davidson, chairman of the college’s Board of Trustees. Davidson wrote, according to HBCU Digest, that as the college continues its search for a new president, Taggart will assume “day-to-day leadership responsibilities for the college.” The board voted in January not to renew Wilson’s contract when it expires in June.
