In case you missed it: N.C. Central University finally received some good news this week regarding the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church fiasco.
The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools notified the university Tuesday that the degrees granted to 25 students at the unauthorized suburban Atlanta campus are, in fact, valid.
That sound you hear is a collective sigh of relief being sighed over on Fayetteville Street.
Eddie Long, the NCCU trustee who runs the Lithonia, Ga. megachurch where the unauthorized series of programs was held for four years, attended this morning's NCCU Board of Trustees meeting via teleconference, not in person. Chancellor Charlie Nelms addressed he issue briefly, repeating his pledge to make the situation right by the students involved. Long did not add anything to that conversation.
