Professor Fired at Weber State University
Jul 2, 2013 — Jared Lisonbee was on the faculty at Weber State University in the College of Education where the Packer Center is housed. When the name of the center was first announced, Jared suggested that naming the center after Brother Packer would alienate many of the very families that the center was intended to serve. He was the only member of the faculty at the meeting to express such obvious concerns.
It has recently come to my attention that Jared has now been removed from his position at the University, and all indications are that his removal was a result of his opposition to the naming of the family center, and of his wife's letter to the editor, and this resulting petition. I believe that this is a morally reprehensible action.
