Dozens of state lawmakers received an e-mail filled with accusations regarding greed and corruption at Northwest Arkansas Community College, prompting school administrators to respond.
"We did receive an email with some very unsettling accusations included in that email," Wyley Elliot, NWACC's vice president for Public Relations and Development. "We are in the process of turning that over to our lawyers and beyond that we don't have any other comment."
The email, sent by Matthew Holland, is addressed to the president of Northwest Arkansas Community College, but it was also sent to state and local lawmakers, the media and other faculty members at the school.
The letter claims the school bureaucracy is bullying and even "robbing" students.
Matthew Holland, who wrote the letter says he did so after meeting a woman he believes was expelled unfairly. Holland says he meant for the letter to be anonymous, but he left his email address at the top.
College administrators are concerned by the closing paragraph of the email, which reads:
"It is my opinion that you have several problematic employees on your roster that need to be dealt with. I also think you need to take a hard look at the direction your administration is heading. I sincerely hope you will take these matters to heart. Big things are on the horizon."Holland says he has no intention of doing anything violent, and the last paragraph is about society changing as a whole.
