Louisiana College Students Plan Strike Over Legal Disputes

PINEVILLE, La. (AP) — Fliers posted around the campus of Louisiana College are calling for a student strike Monday. The move comes after months of controversy and legal disputes surrounding the leadership of college President Joe Aguillard.

The Town Talk reports that Aguillard took student questions at a meeting Thursday afternoon. A reporter from the newspaper was asked to leave after 45 minutes. Students told the newspaper they still plan to hold the “strike of love” Monday at the Baptist college.

Whistleblower complaints were filed against Aguillard last year by Charles L. Quarles and Timothy Johnson, then both vice presidents at the school. The complaints accused Aguillard of inappropriately diverting nearly $60,000 donated by the Cason Foundation to the college’s Caskey School of Divinity.

Johnson has followed his complaint with a lawsuit.
