Giulietti Praised - Letter to the Editor

August 13, 2009

Editor, News-Register:

The recent firing of Wheeling Jesuit University's President, Julio Gulietti, is a real shame. In less than two years this energetic and tireless leader brought many positive changes to the university and helped it to remain one of the top centers of higher learning in our area.

Furthermore, the Board of Directors' attempt to "cover up" their doings by making it seem that Gulietti left on his own is simply disgusting. I thought that the directors' job was to ensure that the Jesuit ideals and ways of life are alive at the yniversity. Apparently they're the ones that need the philosophy lesson. Here's to a great man, and a great model of excellence.
