Beleaguered Grady Memorial Hospital CEO Pam Stephenson produced a letter from the state bar admissions office Monday saying she must have demonstrated in 1994 that she had a law degree, because it licensed her to practice. Stephenson said the letter dated July 21, “confirms what I already knew about myself: Pam Stephenson holds a juris doctorate degree and I worked very hard for that.”
Swell, except she has yet to produce a diploma or even a transcript.
This situation is quite bizarre. Stephenson evidently (1) doesn’t have her diploma either on display or in storage, (2) can’t produce a single copy of her transcript, and (3) already labors under the burden of “word processing errors” to account for other “mystery degrees.” It is also curious that previous AJC reports indicated that some records (to include Stephenson’s) from the Woodrow Wilson School of Law, which are maintained by Oglethorpe University, have now been destroyed. Records like those are NEVER to be destroyed. For example, Mercer University continues to maintain the records from Tift College…in perpetuity.
Rep. Stephenson…where is your degree? Where is your transcript? More importantly, can you name anyone who graduated with you from Woodrow Wilson who remembers you receiving your degree? Did you take the Georgia Bar with anyone you can produce?
