Author Roy Charles reveals heated issues and hullabaloos that concern the students and administration of The Freed Hardeman University in his new book through Xlibris, 'Sex Sins and Scandals of Freed Hardeman University.'
This university in Henderson, Tennessee, is financially supported by the members of the Churches of Christ who helped build it. But behind the portals of the university lie alarming secrets that its donors must know. In this shocking account, Charles recounts, blow by blow, his experiences as a worker in the university from 1990 to 2000. He exposes the clandestine acts of some administrative staff with regards to unjustified promotions and hiring of incompetent employees to leadership posts.
Through his eye-opening book, he divulges the anomaly of the people who run a Christian College, which he forthrightly compares to a mental institution. He highlights the misdeeds of the people who compose the university and how their despicable acts could eventually ruin the name of this Christian learning institution.
A fearless and honest testimony, Sex Sins and Scandals of Freed Hardeman University shows how a university’s system deteriorates over the years – and how upholding the truth and speaking up for one’s rights endanger one’s career.
