Cynthia Tucker laments the downfall of Dolores Cross former President of Morris Brown, who this week pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement. Tucker takes her to task, but inserts this comment:
Federal investigators say she used the money to pay bills at the cash-strapped school, not to benefit personally. I’d like to think her only motive was to enhance the educational opportunities for the school’s core students, who are mostly from poor and working-class homes and who lacked the academic preparation required for more competitive colleges.
No matter her motives, Morris Brown has been run into the ground, and may never recover. As they say “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.”
