Students meet with an administrator in regards to the non-renewal of an education professor’s contract
By Morgan Daniels
Six students met on Wednesday with an administrator to plead their case for a Trevecca education professor whose contract was not renewed for next year.
Supporters of Dusteen Knotts, an associate professor of education who was told by administrators that her contract is not being renewed next year, have created a petition that they said includes 90 education majors’ signatures.
Mandy Goon is used to students being disruptive while she’s leading worship in chapel; but, when they’re loud during communion, it really irritates her.
“It’s not respectful. We’re supposed to be adults. People want to be treated as adults, and they don’t act like it,” Goon said.
Trevecca administrators are cracking down on disruptive behavior in chapel after hearing from several students that some students are making worship difficult by talking and laughing during the service.
