Bouquet to FSCJ Student Randy Durden

Posted

 

Bouquet to FSCJ student Randy Durden for starting a petition drive to get the school’s Board of Trustees to forgive repayment of improperly awarded Pell grants. Durden started an online petition saying the college should pick up the $4.2 million in Pell grants and $800,000 in ineligible loans it was trying to recover from current and former students. At an April 9 meeting, Interim President Willis Holcombe told trustees FSCJ was responsible for the grant appeals, saying it was unlikely FSCJ would collect much money from students. He asked the trustees to pay the shortfall for using non-taxpayer and non-tuition funds, and they agreed.
