Here’s the latest missive in the great Charlie Roy controversy:
To the parent of Villanova – I can understand wanting to know more about Charlie Roy, especially with the most recent events surrounding his leaving PND. I have two students at PND and I can tell you with all certainty that Charlie Roy cares about PND and it’s students. He is respected by the students, faculty and parents. In my opinion and in most, he has always dealt fairly with all of the students. He knows they are young adults that will make mistakes but he holds them accountable when they do. He’s involved and a tremendous advocate for the school and the students. Our loss is definitely your gain. It’s unfortunate that the Diocese did not handle his leaving better. People are upset and it has snowballed into other things that have nothing to do with his leaving or the current school administration. It’s very clear on our end that the Diocese could have handled things a lot better.
Yeah, like maybe NOT forcing the guy to quit his job in the middle of the week.

All gifts go to paying my hosting bill, which isn’t very much, but more than I can afford as I am currently unemployed.
