is a sad day in NWA... Thank you for reporting the way the board voted
and congrats to Mike Shupe and Johnny Haney for standing up to this
president - the ONLY 2 that will get my support. The rest of you are sad
little followers and should follow your Queen Becky right out the door.
I'm sure this is far from over, and the evidence will find its way out,
but in the mean time we've lost a valuable leader at NWACC who, unlike
the majority of the Board, didn't cower to the almighty dictator's
manipulative orders. For the next CFO we pay to ship in : Please be
aware that your job is really only to enhance this presidents legacy, at
whatever cost to the tax payers.
yet again, the majority of the Board did not serve taxpayers' - and
ultimately the students' - interest. Thank you to Mr. Shupe and Mr.
Haney for standing up for what is right. Not sure what "evidence" Ney is
calling for (isn't he the college attorney - not the BofT attorney?!?)
since it is a complete conflict of interest that he was even in the room
for this meeting and all points were outlined in Cate's letter(s). NWACC
has created their own public relations nightmare with this situation.

environment with such corrupt

total outsider who knows nothing of the situation, this seems very
strange. Perhaps there is some type of coverup for fiscal wrongdoing.
And as soon as the CFO gets a little suspicious, he gets terminated?
And for those board members that fell for the tag team legalese
bullying by your chair and the president/board/college attorney, shame
on you. You've lost this taxpayers respect. And the community college
has lost a student.
personally do not know any of the people involved in this situation,
but the more I read the more I think there is a tremendous need for
transparency here. Hopefully an in-depth investigation into what is
really going on, and what has led to all the furor.
we know how people blunder and fail their way up the ladder: due to the
unwavering support of unethical, unconscionable people like themselves.
Shame on the 6 members of the BoT who allowed themselves to get sucked
into Paneitz's corruption and refused Parsons the right to an appeal.
compare the memo to the appeal letter. THAT doesn't give the Board
enough pause to grant an appeal? Seriously? The meeting was
manipulated from start to finish. When board members attempted to speak
to discuss options, they were immediately silenced by the board chair.
This is ridiculous!
Keep fighting Mr. Parsons, this community supports YOU.

that, my friends, is evidence of conflict of interest. Talk about
financial advantage. The case continues, cha-ching for Ney. Is the board

barrier of scrutiny on her well-known spending habits. Sounds like

This is NWACC's President, Becky Paneitz. Her reign at NWACC has been riddled with scandals, corruption, and "academic bullying". Thankfully she is on her way out. We strongly hope the Arkansas Department of Higher Education will hold her accountable for her uncountable wrong-doings.
This is how her mission statement reads (http://nwacc.edu/web/presidentsoffice/):

We have been in contact with many of NWACC's allied health students who were bullied and wrongfully expelled. These students were enrolled in the nursing program, the physical therapy program, the respiratory therapy program, and the EMT program. Each of these departments has a director and above these directors is Dean Mary Ross. It is Mary Ross who condones and encourages the bullying of these students. Her accomplices are some of the instructors of these departments, the directors of these various departments, Judicial Affaris, Dale Montgomery, VP of Learner Support Services, Todd Kitchen, Senior VP of Learner Support Services and also Provost to the President, Steven Gates, and President Becky Paneitz. And, supporting these individuals is the Arkansas Attorney General, Dustin McDaniels.
Arkansas tax payers and parents of NWACC students - these individuals need to be held accountable for their actions and these students deserve to have their cases properly addressed.
*The nursing program has an examination scheduled for 9/5/2012 but these students have not been able to purchase their text books due to back order. How and with what, then, will these students be able to properly prepare for this exam? We believe it should be rescheduled to a time when these students have their texts and have had time to properly study and prepare for this exam.
LITTLE ROCK — My column Saturday about President Becky Paneitz’s sudden firing of a former top administrative official at Northwest Arkansas Community College has inflamed a major nerve with readers in Northwest Arkansas.
The account of her dismissing Marty Parsons behind closed doors has led many to believe the NWACC’s elected Board of Trustees will be derelict if it doesn’t schedule Parsons’ requested appeal in the near future. As I wrote, it’s been two weeks since Parsons’ attorneys requested an appeal hearing. All they’ve received in return is the sound of silence.
Paneitz reportedly fired 57-yearold Parsons at the end of a relatively brief meeting in her office on Aug. 1. They had met to discuss another issue and as it was concluding she handed him a memo containing her nine issues with his performance.
The memo gave Parsons 30 days to correct the problems, which included alleged insubordination, a late budget and supposedly inappropriate language. Parsons has denied the president’s allegations and says she fired him on the spot after he refused her request to resign.
Sure sounds like there’s some dense smoke this board must wade through to extinguish a growing bonfire of public unrest.
A 34-year veteran of higher education administration, Parsons arrived at the college in October of 2010 as the vice president for finance. He did a fine enough job to be promoted nine months later to become the vice president of administrative services and chief financial officer.
Folks in the hinterland seem irate over this latest uproar at the college, especially since Parsons is one of (I’m told) at least five CFOs to depart since Paneitz took over in 2003. Wonder what they’d have to say. Right now, citizens are seeking answers they deserve. After all, this is their tax supported institution. Consider these Internet-posted reader responses to my column:
“This is now statewide, NWACC Board of Trustees. How embarrassing. Have you misunderstood your elected responsibilities? Or are you somehow being kept in the dark? Marty Parsons deserves his job back. Period. No under-the-table deals either. His contract continues to be renewed annually as long he performs his job with ethics and integrity. Enough taxpayer dollars have been wasted.”
“NWACC BOARD: This termination was unfair, unfounded and inappropriate. The climate at the college is fear, disappointment and helplessness-in that order. You attained your role to manage this college president. Please do not let an ego take precedence over righting a wrong. Help us avoid massive legal costs and embarrassment to our college. Times are tough enough. Do what’s right for our students, faculty, staff and community/taxpayers. Reinstate Parsons. He IS the solution.”
“If this board doesn’t ask Paneitz to step down immediately, they all need to be replaced with someone that will. This woman is going to just completely run this place into the ground in the time she has left. I suspect she announced her ‘retirement’ because she felt the truth would come out eventually on her epic reign and she would be ultimately fired at some point.” [Paneitz announced a year in advance that she will resign her position next summer.]
“From many comments on the message boards, it seems like the morale issue isn’t in the department Parsons led. Since his departure, it reads like NWACC morale has plummeted. Which would lead one to believe that low morale doesn’t sit on Parsons’ shoulders, but rather originates from the very top.”
“Good for you for posting the names of the Board of Trustees. They can act here and may be the only hope for employees desperate for the truth to come out, but quiet in order to protect their job security. Yes, morale is at an all-time-low and fear reigns. . . . Community members-your voice is needed to force accountability.”
“Re: Contacting the Board of Trustees and Insubordination. Is there a policy in place that states an executive staff member cannot contact the Board to discuss any matter pertaining to the college? Wouldn’t that be their responsibility to do so? It’s called check and balance. Nowhere is it mentioned in the Paneitz memo that Parsons was instructed not to contact the Board of Trustees.Someone needs to recheck the definition of insubordination, because this ain’t it.”
“Maybe the state should step in, dissolve the board, and start from scratch.” I have this gnawing sensation down in my midsection that tells me the serious matter of Marty Parsons’ sudden dismissal from his position isn’t going to quietly fade away.
Too many people who know Parsons see him as a far different man than the seemingly flawed administrator Paneitz painted him to be in her sweeping memo. And they clearly see a potential glaring injustice lying in wait for those with authority to address it.
It’s time to listen to what Parsons and his attorney have to say, objectively weigh the truth and the “rightness” (for lack of a better word) of what’s been done here, then take whatever action the trustees deem is correct for the overall welfare and credibility of this institution. And isn’t that precisely what they are elected to do?

'Mobbing' Can Damage More Than Careers, Professors Are Told at Conference
'Mobbing' Can Damage More Than Careers, Professors Are Told at Conference
Washington — It probably wouldn’t be that hard for faculty members to imagine that academic mobbing — a form of bullying in which members of a department gang up to isolate or humiliate a colleague — could derail their careers. But a discussion of the phenomenon today at the American Association of University Professors’ international conference on globalization, shared governance, and academic freedom illustrated that the consequences can be much worse.
The session, based on a paper titled “Mobbing as a Factor in Faculty Work Life,” began with a gripping story about how colleagues and administrators had ganged up on a highly productive tenured professor — think of being subjected to a stream of trumped-up complaints, ousted from an office, shut out of departmental meetings and committees, accused of an affair with a graduate student, and more. The professor was eventually fired and almost immediately afterward died of a stroke brought on by the stress of it all.
The story, actually a composite of the real-life experiences of several professors who were victims of mobbing, was written by Joan E. Friedenberg, a professor of bilingual education at Florida Atlantic University who herself has experienced academic mobbing. Collapsing many stories into one, she said, allows her to better communicate “the feelings of bewilderment and dread that victims of mobbing feel.”
Ms. Friedenberg and the paper’s co-authors, Mark Schneider, an associate professor of sociology at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, and Kenneth Westhues, a professor of sociology at the University of Waterloo, presented their research at today’s session. Mr. Westhues, who discussed his studies of academic mobbing with The Chronicle in 2006, also offered a handout that included a list of 16 indicators of mobbing. Among them: If rumors are circulating about the target’s supposed misdeeds, if the target is excluded from meetings or not named to committees, or if people are saying the target needs to be punished formally “to be taught a lesson,” it’s likely that mobbing is under way.
But victims should not assume that notifying an administrator will help. Evidence suggests that administrators may find it easier to become part of a mob than to try to stop one, Mr. Schneider said. That’s because administrators are likely to think it’s better to have one person upset with them than a group. And faculty associations, he said, can’t really “confront and expose mobbing unless they are very strong.”
Ms. Friedenberg added that administrators should be forewarned that mobbing can have a boomerang effect on them: Some victims are “driven by detail and an intense need for justice,” she said, and may launch a “significant counterattack.” —Audrey Williams June

Marty Parsons (http://www.nwaonline.com/news/2012/aug/02/letter-details-issues-leading-parsons-firing/?news-arkansas-nwa-bentonville) is just another one of NWACC's Pres Paneitz and VP, Steven Gates, long list of victims and scape goats for a much larger internal, dysfunctional, NWACC cultural problem. We have been studying NWACC's behavior for a long time and know exactly how this mob mentality operates. Steven Gates is the Don Corleone of this mob mentality (Google "Academic Mobbing"), which is why nothing gets resolved as long as Paneitz and Gates are in their positions. We need Paneitz and Gates to step down. Be sure to inform all your loved ones to steer clear of NWACC. Paneitz and Gates destroy people's lives, such as Marty Parsons'. Below is an article published in today's Arkansas Democrat Gazette written by Opinion Editor, Mike Masterson:
LITTLE ROCK — So what the ever-lovin’ bent mortarboard is up at the Northwest Arkansas Community College in Bentonville?
Of the reader comments made on my NWA Source opinion blog of late, none have come close in volume or angst to my thoughts about Marty Parsons.
He’s the former senior vice president for administrative services and chief financial officer who is appealing the way in which president Becky Paneitz suddenly fired him on August 1.
There are far too many valid questions left in orbit around this weighty matter to suit many people.
For instance, I’m told by folks who should know that Parsons is the fifth or sixth CFO at NWACC to depart since Paneitz became its president in 2003. If that’s the case, why so many and in such a relatively short period?
It’s also seems odd to me that two weeks after it was requested, Parsons still is waiting for the NWACC trustees to hear the appeal he’s due according to the school’s own policy. Might I respectfully suggest that board Chairman Alex Vasquez take action to convene his colleagues very soon and get this show on the road? Lots of good people whose taxes help fund this institution are waiting for answers and watching the trustees to see if the “right thing” is done.
The initial event leading to Parsons’ abrupt firing reportedly began at a meeting on July 25. That gathering included Paneitz, Parsons, school attorney Marshall Ney and Parsons’ attorney.
During that session, I understand, Paneitz counseled Parsons on a few issues that were troubling her. Those allegations included insubordination, failure to complete the college budget in a timely manner, some inappropriate language and reputed low morale in Parsons’ department.
Either all, or part, of her concerns were detailed in a memo that Paneitz reportedly placed in Parsons’ personnel file that same day.
But wait a minute. Hadn’t a newspaper reporter written earlier that month that one board member at the July 14 summer trustees retreat (the president did not attend) told his group that Parsons was not the problem at their school, but rather the “solution”? It’s also my understanding that this trustee even added that he believed Parsons had been the best hire in his decade of service on the board.
Nonetheless, the afternoon of August 1, Parsons again met with Paneitz to discuss the school’s cash-flow issues. During that discussion, he said, Paneitz handed him the memorandum that spelled out her specific concerns. This memo, which Parsons says he hadn’t previously seen, allowed him 30 days to resolve the issues.
Then, he says, the president asked him to resign on the spot, which he refused to do. Parsons said she then told him (in this meeting) that he was “done” at the college.
His termination letter arrived two days later and gave his official firing date as August 1.
Parsons’ attorneys for the appeal, Brandon Cate and Joe Falasco, contend in their appeal letter that Parsons was unjustly canned without due process.
That letter reads in part: “Dr. Paneitz had conflict of interests . . . because she did not have all the facts in terminating Mr. Parsons’ employment.” It goes on to say Paneitz did not have a valid cause to fire him and he was dismissed without representation from the school’s human resources officer.
In other words, the lawyers are saying, hey, put your horses back in the corral, madam president. You gave Marty Parsons 30 days to measure up to your expectations, but instead canned him on the same day you handed him the memo detailing your discontents. We see a problem here.
So what is going on? Of course, I’m no attorney either. Maybe there’s nothing wrong at all-nothing to see here, folks, please move along.
Yet the truth is there are relevant questions of fact about Parsons’ sudden firing that the board of trustees must hear and honorably resolve in this man’s justifiable appeal. Otherwise, I’ll not be surprised to see the facts being aired in a courtroom, financial concerns and all, since he was the CFO.
A courtroom also likely would mean the board, Paneitz and former top-level NWACC administrative employees who either resigned or were asked to resign being called as witnesses as to management practices at the top. You know: Who said-and did-what to whom and when?
Parsons’ dismissal has fanned flames of anger in Benton County and elsewhere.
Some say good riddance to Parsons. But a far larger number of responses seem to be taking his side and questioning-whether justified or not-Paneitz’s management practices.
Hopefully, the deeper truths that surround Parsons’ firing will indeed come out in the wash once this appeal to the trustees is completed, or, if not, in sworn depositions and the courtroom.
FYI, NWACC’s board consists of Alex Vasquez, Johnny Haney, Hadley Hindmarsh, Mike Shupe, Ric Clifford, Joan Clifford, Mark Lundy, Joe Spivey and Randy Lawson.
Just knowing what little I do about this saga, the appeal process should be enough to force each of these trustees to confront their personal consciences, their public responsibilities and their fundamental allegiance to the college.

We have been discussing what a true Christian is. The NWACC bullies claim to be good Christians, but the truth of the matter is that they are Christian imposters. We've asked several Christians how they would feel sitting next to an NWACC bully in church knowing that they secretly and connivingly destroy people's careers and livelihoods. The resounding answer is that these bullies need to practice what they worship at church or else they should not go to church at all. They do not follow the two fundamental beliefs of Christianity elaborated upon below. The Ten Commandments, are a set of biblical principles relating to ethics (NWACC bullies have none) and worship (God, not themselves), which play a fundamental role in Christianity. They include instructions to worship only God and to keep the Sabbath, and prohibitions against idolatry, blasphemy (slander and bullying), murder, theft, and adultery. According to the synoptic gospels, Christ generalized the law into two underlying principles; The first is Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. While the second is You shall love your neighbor as yourself and do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Barnes' Notes on the New Testament comments on these verses saying: "These comprehend the substance of what Moses in the law, and what the prophets have spoken. What they have said has been to endeavor to win men to the love of God and to each other . Love to God and to man comprehends the whole [of] religion; and to produce this has been the design of Moses, the Prophets, the Savior, and the Apostles."
bullies (photos below of Pres Becky Paneitz, VP Steven Gates, Trustee Chairman Alex Vazquez, Judicial Affairs Dale Montgomery, and Dean of Health Professions Mary Ross) - you are not
only breaking human rights laws, but also the two underlying laws of
Christianity, Moses, the Prophets, the Savior, and the Apostles. Have
you thought about what life would be like if you were the victims of
bullying and your careers and livelihoods were destroyed by bullies?What
do you think the good Lord thinks of you bullies? According to the
teachings of the biblical scriptures, do you think you will you be going
to Heaven or to Hell?
It has come to our attention from several aggrieved NWACC students that the Dean of Allied Health, Mary Ross (photo above), is quite the bully. It is she who promotes and condones the bullying of allied health students in their various departments. Shame on you, Mary Ross!
