BP alumnus attorney resigns national board

ATLANTA – A member of the Brewton-Parker College National Alumi Board has resigned, citing disagreement with the school’s current administration. Atlanta-area attorney Jeff Dickerson made the announcement on Facebook March 10, “I am very thankful for the valuable life lessons I learned while attending Brewton-Parker College. However, I am saddened and embarrassed by the new administration and by the direction in which the school is moving. Accordingly, I today tendered my resignation from the National Alumni Board.” Dickerson’s resignation comes about three months after Ergun Caner was elected president of the Georgia Baptist college by a unanimous vote of the college’s trustees. Critics accuse Caner of embellishing his background as a former Muslim who converted to Christianity.
