E. H. Hereford Investigative Report

Resolution 18-18 calls for the renaming of the E.H. Hereford University Center and removal of the namesakes’ statue. Last Wednesday organization president Mark Napieralski and the Progressive Student Union staged a protest around Hereford’s statue and invited students to sign their petition. Napieralski has brought forth allegations that former President Hereford fostered the creation of racially intolerant themes at the university. These allegations include allowing the KKK to be on campus and changing the school’s mascot to become the Rebels. UTA News’ own investigative reporter Mason Brighton looked into these allegations and here is what he found.

    Fantastic break down. I would also recommend looking into for what the building and statue were originally intended. I doubt the campus put his bust up in an attempt to idolize his ‘racist’ characteristics. I’d almost bet they originally were to idolize the extreme work it took to pull the school into the realm of four year universities.
