WLU Students and Alumni Protest Against Former President Robin Capehart


West Liberty University students and alumni sent a strong message to administration Wednesday. 

About 40 people marched around the campus chanting and carrying signs in protest against former president Robin Capehart still working for the university.

Capehart is currently a legislative liaison and consultant, where he collects the same salary as his former position. 

“This demonstration is to bring attention to the petition,” WLU Student Andria Renshaw said. “There is one circulating online and we have a physical petition. Because it is finals week we will not have a very large participation, but the fact that this many students show up says a lot about what the student body has to say about it.”

Capehart resigned as WLU president back in March after an ethics complaint and a vote of no confidence by the faculty senate. Capehart denied the allegations. 

7 News reached out to University officials about the demonstration, but they did not have a comment.
