I don’t know any of these people personally but it got my attention....
From the post by Charlie Stryker:
Photo - A Sad Day in Liberty University History.
What is this picture?
*2009 HOF (Hall of Fame) Inductee,
*2019 Jersey Retired (#83),
*July 2020 first African American LU Executive Level Vice President (VP of Management Efficiencies and Diversity),
Kelvin Edwards, after being hired and being moved to Lynchburg by Liberty is now forced to load his own Uhaul and move himself back to Texas. This is after selling his business, his wife leaving her teaching and coaching job of 20 plus years and uprooting his children from their schools to attend LCA. Jerry Falwell Jr. made . a significant commitment to bring Kelvin and his family home to Liberty to start a new chapter in their life. Kelvin came to plant his life at the school and athletic program he helped build and gave name recognition to; and most importantly dearly loved. Why? Because in September, 1982, Kelvinwas born again-saved in a chapel (convo) service as Dr. Vernon Brewer preached the WORD of God and gave his personal testimony. You see, Kelvin was coming home to give back to the school that gave so much to him! Kelvin is a "Champion for Christ"! He has the spirit of Liberty in his heart!
Today, October 30th, Kelvin will begin with his family the long drive back to Texas! My question is "WHY"? I know "Why"!! Do you want to know why? You are not going to like it! I can assure you of this!!!
Interim President Prevo fired Kelvin Edwards! In my opinion, it is despicable what was said and done to Kelvin Edwards!
Also my opinion, Interim President Prevo's handling of this matter was sophomoric, bush league, Junior High 101! His attitude was condescending. His actions were indefensible! This is an injustice!
We all loved Jerry Falwell Sr. Kelvin felted he was treated as family. Dr. Falwell would call Kelvin frequently, sometimes daily. Dr Falwell loved his spirit, his encouragement and his stories of witness for Jesus. In my opinion, Dr. Falwell would be embarrassed and ashamed of Interim President Prevo's attitude and actions against a true Champion For Christ!
