  1. psst……..he should of just come and said what really got him sent down the road!

  2. I bet she was good!!!!!

  3. That is too bad that you both feel that way. Dr. Gould is a wonderful leader and has been supporting Mr. Hammond and the FHSU community for over 18 years as Provost. Behind every great leader, like Dr. Hammond, stands an equally as great supporter. Both gentlemen should be commended for their work and dedication. Dr. Gould still is an active employee and supporter of the university– beloved my all the students, faculty and staff that he mentored and supported. I personally hope that Dr. Gould runs for president because no one is more qualified then he. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the truth about Provost Gould.

    • “I agree 100%. It surprises me that people haven’t figured out that they both announced their leaving of positions two weeks apart. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Dr. Gould didn’t want to give Ed’s big surprise away! He probably didn’t have time to be Provost and prepare for candidacy. Some big scandel… Poor guy. “

    • I agree totally. Dr Gould has been nothing but supportive of the University and has been an honorable role model. This community needs more like him!

    • Being accused of dipping your pen in the companay inkwell has done irrepairable harm to him and FHSU. Then to have it swept under the carpet shows there is the “ole buddy” system at FHSU
