On the firing of Julie Moore from my alma mater
Yes. As a fellow Taylor grad, this grieves me. I remember Jay Kessler sitting in the aisle floor in chapel when a popular speaker filled the seats. That image of servant leadership stuck with me and contrasts sharply with what happened here. My perspective was broadened at Taylor. I also hope to see repentance and honest review of what occurred.
Thank you for writing this! As a fellow Taylor grad, you put words to something I didn't know how to say yet.
Sara, I didn't realize you were a Taylor alum -- I've just taken a job at Taylor (signed a contract in Nov for the upcoming school year) and this news was both sickening and heartbreaking. We didn't know much about Taylor but heard enough good things from alums to be willing to take the leap even with a new president/provost...and now are deeply concerned we made the wrong decision. It's heartening that alums like you are speaking out about this and we are praying fervently for change while also preparing to be on the job market again this upcoming year, because it seems like Taylor isn't the place we'd hoped it was. Keep speaking up!
