Formal Alliance: Southern Catholic and the Legion
Editor’s note: Another update from our anonymous and knowing Southern Catholic friend.
Today Southern Catholic College officially announced that which was reported here some days ago, namely that the deal with the Legion of Christ has been finalized. The announcement was both posted on the website and emailed to the students. In its entirety:
We are excited to announce Southern Catholic College and the Legion of Christ have reached an agreement on a formal alliance. The Legion has informed the College that the alliance will be finalized later this week. In the next few days, there will be an official press release, and the details will be sent to students, alumni, parents, faculty and the new students who will be our incoming fall class.
Updates will also be made to our website and we plan to implement an aggressive promotional campaign in the next few weeks in anticipation of the beginning of classes on Tuesday, September 8th.
Please keep the Board of Trustees and Administration in your prayers this week as they work as stewards of the Southern Catholic College mission.
Sounding like something Leia Organa might say, this formal alliance should put some needed energy into the ostensibly flagging school. If nothing else, the website has sorely needed updates and activity for as long as it has existed, and the promotional campaigns of the school have gotten smaller and, as was once pointed out, less poignant as time has gone on. As I said before, they offer a hope that the trend of poor administration will be reversed.
