Rochelle Parker started this petition to Fisk University Alum and Current Students

On Wednesday, June 26, 2019, Mr. Lynwood Berry's position of Assistant Director of Alumni Affairs of Fisk University was eliminated.  He was notified of this while on vacation.  The university has stated in an email and social media post that this position elimination was due to right-sizing.  We, the alumni and current students of Fisk University, request that Mr. Lynwood Berry be fully reinstated to his position without loss of seniority or job benefits and that his employment be in effect until which time he so chooses to resign or retire.  We further request that a public apology be given by President Rome and the president of the Board of Directors.

If his employment is not reinstated, it is the intent of those signing this petition to respond in one or more of these ways:  divert current donations from Fisk to Mr. Lynwood Berry to assist in this transition, not attend future Alumni Weekends, protest at future Homeoming celebrations, continue to write and call the president's office, and anything that will bring attention to Fisk's administration.  These responses will be at our own will and has not been requested by Mr. Lynwood Berry.  He, in fact, has asked us to continue supporting the University which we will do upon his reinstatement and upon a public apology from President Rome and the president of the Board of Directors.
