Four members of the board of trustees at Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee, have stepped down from their positions, citing a disagreement with school leadership that could not be reconciled.
After a private board meeting earlier in July, Trustees Jeff Ryan, Gary Phillips, James Wolf and Mark Senter stepped down from their positions, citing concerns over the leadership of Stephen Livesay, president of the small Christian liberal arts college. Twelve other trustee members remain on the board.
Former Trustee Jeff Ryan told the Chattanooga Times Free Press that the special July board meeting was called to address "the issues and controversies and problems at Bryan College that have developed in the last year." When an agreement couldn't be reached during the closed-door meeting, the trustee added to the local media outlet that he chose to resign due to the "failed leadership at the level of the president and within the board itself." more >>
