Support Paul Quinn College website launched in hopes of aiding school

  • Sharebar

A new website called Support Paul Quinn College ( has been launched in support of the historically black college in Southern Dallas.  Paul Quinn has a hearing set for next month where they will have a chance to appeal the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools decision to revoke their accreditation.

The website has a letter of support from Bob Shapard, CEO and board chairman of Oncor, which is signed off by a number business and civic leaders (see list below).  This will run in the Business section of the Dallas Morning News on Sunday.

Support Paul Quinn College also has a presence on Twitter, and Facebook.

This is a good thing.  We’ve seen how social media can help bring attention to issues, and I hope the same thing happens here.

Let me say this though.  GIVE PAUL QUINN SOME MONEY.  If I thought that it would be throwing good money after bad, I would not make that appeal.  But I made a donation to Paul Quinn earlier this year and don’t regret it a bit.  It doesn’t take much, and every little bit counts.  The struggle that PCQ finds itself in is a financial one.

The school is headed in the right direction and needs the support of the entire community.  I’ll continue to do what I can to help and I hope you will too.
