Parents angered after daughters’ Tennessee track careers come to abrupt end

During his daughter official visit to Penn State in October of 2013, George Harvey sat beside coach Beth Alford Sullivan during a dinner for track prospects.

The head of the Penn State track and field program had offered Morgan Harvey, one of the top hurdlers in the 2014 15 class, an 80 percent scholarship. She would have accepted, had she not received a full ride from Tennessee. Clark.

knew Morgan, Harvey said. had recruited her at Penn State. Why not have her at Tennessee? question haunts him now.

would like to go on record and let people who are being recruited by Coach Sullivan know the type of person she is, he said.

Morgan Harvey was among the six women Alford Sullivan cut from the UT track team last month.

The dismissals
cheap michael kors occurred two weeks into practices, less than two months after the coach publicly praised the freshmen she inherited from Clark.

Parents heard the news the same way. Crying daughters called and told them they were no longer on the team.

These parents are now questioning Alford Sullivan decision, her timing and her integrity.

problem is the callousness of how she did this, George Harvey said. girls gave up other scholarships to come to Tennessee, and basically they being screwed by this coach. announced Alford Sullivan hire on June 24. On Aug. 6, she told the News Sentinel that the program 16 member signing class would arrive intact.

athletes tend to be fairly loyal kids, she said then. think they were happy with the hire. on Sept. 24, parents said, Alford Sullivan released the six athletes. Margaret Draper, Brooke Coltelli and sophomore Laura Morse were walk ons. Morgan Harvey, Ariel Terrell and Shelbi White were scholarship sprinters and hurdlers from the signing class.

Harvey, a New Jersey native, picked UT in part to help her parents pay for her twin sister tuition at another school. Her lead recruiter, women sprint coach Sharon Couch Fikes, was not retained by Sullivan.

Terrell, from Atlanta, won the 400 meter hurdles at the 2013
Michael Kors handbags USATF National Junior Olympics. She opted for a 75 percent scholarship from UT over offers from Clemson and Mississippi State. She also was recruited by Couch Fikes.

Sprinter Shelbi White of Alabama won 4 A titles in the 100, 200 and 400 events. Recruited exclusively by Clark, she chose a full scholarship to UT over full ride offers from LSU, Auburn, Georgia, Texas among others.

Steven White, father of Shelbi White, recalls a conversation he had with his daughter before she was dismissed. She told him the coaches had reassigned her to practice with the veteran athletes because she was excelling. This made the Sept. 24 phone call he received even more confusing.

Other parents have similar stories. They say their daughters had done everything that was asked of them and had not encountered academic or disciplinary issues. The business like dismissals, they say, came without warning.

On a Wednesday afternoon, Alford Sullivan summoned the women to her office with a text message.
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet Her entire staff was present. A box of Kleenex was within reach.

Parents say the coach bluntly informed the women she would not have recruited them, and told them
michael kors handbags outlet they would not be a part of the team vision moving forward.

Steven White said he asked for an explanation when he drove to Knoxville to meet with Alford Sullivan in her office on Sept. 26.

never could give me that vision, he said. statement was she didn fit into the direction her and her staff are going in. She never told me what that direction was. She never told me the reason why she cut my daughter. They were stripped of athletic privileges, including weight training, treatment and nutrition. They are allowed to use Tom Black Track, but only if team practices are not in session. Starting blocks, hurdles and other equipment are not available.

basically just told them, you are a nobody, and I going to treat you like a nobody, Steven White said. how I feel the University of Tennessee treated my daughter. Terrell and White are searching for new schools, still unsure why they moved to Knoxville only to be asked to leave.

Their parents want a thorough explanation.

one has ever heard of this in the history of track, said Aliya Terrell, Ariel mother. school I heard from, even after contacting the SEC or the NCAA, no one has heard of a coach let go of girls on scholarship without them even hitting the track. opinion is echoed by Tony Carpenter, coach of the
replica Michael Kors outlet Titans Track Club in Atlanta, where Ariel Terrell trained. He said he has spoken to seven SEC track coaches. All concluded UT broke no rules. All considered the dismissals unprecedented.

On Oct. 4, Carpenter sent an email to UT athletic director Dave Hart, Alford Sullivan, additional UT officials and the News Sentinel to voice his complaints.

scholarships are renewable annually, he said in a phone interview. norm, when a new coach comes in, that new coach may share his or her vision with the team. There may be some scholarships at jeopardy to be renewed the following year. But, typically, athletes are
Michael kors handbags outlet given a year to prove themselves That was not the case here. also decried what he believed to be a lack of tact.

manner of which the message was delivered didn take into consideration that these were human beings, he said. is a certain emotional component to this. It was all business. White said assistant SEC commissioner of compliance Will Lawler, a former director of compliance at UT, also told him UT broke no rules, but added such dismissals are rare. Lawler declined to comment when reached by the News Sentinel.

Through UT spokesman Jimmy Stanton, Alford Sullivan and Hart declined multiple interview requests for this story. Stanton said UT placed no transfer restrictions on the women and will honor the athletes scholarships through the end of the 2015 spring semester.

For the parents, it a hollow gesture. Their daughters moved to Knoxville to run.

They say their conversations with Alford Sullivan and senior associate athletics director Donna Thomas left them dissatisfied. They
Michael Kors handbags outlet say their attempts to reach Hart and UT chancellor Jimmy Cheek were unsuccessful.Articles Connexes:

ND lawmakers signal distrust to higher

obituariesHeadlinesVirgil J. HegleDr. Michael W. EmmerichCurtis W. HermanTherese "Terry" ProchaskaMary B. water rule

This week, a North Dakota news item should have made State Board of Higher Education members sit bolt upright in similar alarm. For among those who spoke most forcefully in favor of chiseling into law legislators’ distrust of the board was Rep. Mark Sanford, R Grand Forks.

And when Sanford tells university system leaders that they’re getting things wrong, those leaders should listen.

Sanford is a former Grand Forks School District superintendent. More important, he retired as the longest serving superintendent in the district’s history, having served in the top post from 1981 to 2007.

His tenure was a period of both labor peace and parent and taxpayer goodwill, a tough balancing act under any circumstances. Sanford also led the district’s successful recovery after Grand Forks’ 1997 flood, supervising the renovation of several schools and the replacement of several more.

replica ray ban sunglasses recognition of his service, the district’s administration building is called the Mark Sanford Education Center today.

The issue in this case is a clause in House Bill 1003, the university system’s budget bill.

"Frustrations with missteps by the North Dakota University System played out in the House on Wednesday as lawmakers voted to eliminate the system’s internal auditor and attorney positions and move those
cheap ray bans functions to other state agencies," Forum News Service reported.

"Members voted 60 32 to hire six auditors in the state auditor’s office and six attorneys in the attorney general’s office to oversee the university system and provide legal services to the state board and its 11 institutions.
discount ray bans . Rep. Mark Sanford, R Grand Forks, cited the high level of turnover of auditors in the system office and violations of open records and meetings laws as examples of why the change is necessary. .

"’There’s a need here for high quality, consistent advice. That’s the goal here,’ Sanford said."

To repeat, when Sanford a Minot State grad, UND grad,
cheap ray ban outlet longtime superintendent in and now state representative of UND’s hometown talks on the House floor about a breach of trust, higher ed board members should pay attention.

They also shouldn’t be surprised that in another telling move, HB 1003 also cut funding below Gov. Jack Dalrymple’s request.Articles Connexes:

Sarah as ”Sally Bowles” in CABARET @ Uppsala Stadsteater in Sweden 2014

Sarah will play the legendary role of ”Sally Bowles” in the musical Cabaret at Uppsala Stadsteater for 3 months in the spring of 2014.

Some tickets are released already! Buy them here:  Biljetter här: http://www.uppsalastadsteater.se/forestallningar-2011-2012/cabaret/#tickets

Välkommen till Kit Kat Klub. Till drama, sång och musik. Till Cabaret!

Välkommen till drömmarnas och möjligheternas stad; till 30-talets Berlin där konsten och den politiska diskussionen aldrig varit mer levande. Men tiderna förändras. I skuggan av den framväxande fascismen letar människor efter kärlek och identitet. Till denna smältdegel kommer den unge amerikanen Cliff på jakt efter sig själv. Många är de karaktärer som påverkar hans tillvaro, särskilt nattklubbssångerskan Sally Bowles.

Cabaret är baserad på Christopher Isherwoods klassiska roman Farväl till Berlin. Isherwood var bosatt i Berlin 1929-1933, strax innan Adolf Hitler kom till makten. Hans tid där och de personer han mötte inspirerade honom till boken och dess karaktärer. Romanen ligger också till grund för filmen Cabaret med Liza Minelli i rollen som Sally Bowles, en roll som gav henne en Oscar för bästa kvinnliga huvudroll.

Av Fred Ebb & John Kander med manus av Joe Masteroff efter Christopher Isherwoods bok »Farväl till Berlin«

Regi: Ronny Danielsson
Koreografi: Roger Lybeck

Cliff Bradshaw – Francisco Sobrado, Sally Bowles – Sarah Dawn Finer, Konferencier – Oscar Pierrou Lindén, Fräulein Schneider – Babben Larsson
Herr Schultz – Gustav Levin, Ernst Ludwig – Eli Ingvarsson, Fräulein Kost – Linda Kulle, Kit Kat Boys – Camilo Ge Bresky, Stefan Clarin, Karim Carlsson
