Idea Stacking

"I think we should be clear that the decline in enrollment at USF St. Petersburg is a direct result of consolidation combined with the COVID 19 crisis. Prior to the initiation of consolidation, the St. Pete campus was a vibrant and growing community, attracting diverse students to unique programs. After scrambling for two years to restructure everything under one umbrella – stripping away much of what was unique at St. Pete— we are now faced with building new programs (which will cost money in the midst of a budget crisis) to regain lost ground."

"I love Pastor Watson Haynes, I have known him for years. Why is it that his name is always first to be selected for these “Improve Black St. Pete” councils? We need new faces, new ideas. In addition, we need younger folk on these councils. We have Brother John Muhammad, Mr Sha Bazz, Mr. Jabaar Edmonds, Ms.Esther Eugene, Ms. Lane Howard Hobbs, Ms. Maria Scruggs and others that need to be on these councils. In addition, there is Jan Harp, La Donna Butler , folk that are in the mental health field. Please, reach out for other Black folk, please."
