Students attack firing of KSU vice president

By BETH CRACE State Journal Staff Writer Published:

They were mad.

Or, at least, their signs would have led one to believe so. But the 40 or so Kentucky State University students who turned out Thursday to protest the firing of a popular administrator had little to say on the matter.

The students gathered Thursday during a work session of the university's governing board. They were there in support of Kenneth Chatman, the university's vice president of student affairs who was terminated last week.

The students could not address the issue at the meeting, because state open meetings laws do not permit public discussion of items that aren't listed on the agenda of a special called meeting.

Though the students carried signs with slogans such as "Got Chatman? We don't," many declined comment to the newspaper, or refused to give their names.
