Sweet Briar

As an update to our previous story, Sweet Briar College has now formally denied the rumors they are in communications with Disney as a potential buyer for the college’s land in Amherst County. Such a denial amid the secrecy that the Board has been acting under means little however. If the Board wishes to squelch the rumors, we suggest that they rescind their secrecy pact and all sign a No Self-Dealing Statement to show their good faith.

In the meantime, we at The School of Athens stand by our report that Disney is indeed interested in the property, and call upon Attorney General Mark Herring act to make certain a fiduciary is put in place to properly manage the Sweet Briar endowment until these matters can be resolved.
