Jovon Robinson Cleared by Memphis BOE - Visiting Auburn Today



We told you so
quote:

Memphis City Schools' investigation into the transcript change that came to light last summer involving former Wooddale High running back Jovon Robinson produced no other evidence of wrongdoing by other MCS employees, the system's interim superintendent said

"Unless the District is presented with new evidence, we consider the matter to be closed," interim MCS superintendent Dorsey Hopson wrote in an email to The Commercial Appeal


Case Closed. Suck it SECr

h/t AUtig24 for finding link & quotes

*@WarBlogle: Jovon Robinson is on campus (not sure if in classes), and from what I was told, is very interested in playing football for Auburn. #wareagle

Did he ever go to Juco or anything? Just hanging out in Memphis?

So was the transcript tampered with or not?

Basically, the intern who changed the grades wouldn't roll over on the other people involved. Snitches get stitches = case closed

Yes, it was altered.

Wooddale counselor Valerie Starks-Sykes was said to have admitted making the changes in MCS internal emails obtained by The CA in late August. "She was certain someone had asked her to make the changes but was reluctant to name anyone who may have been involved," William White of MCS wrote in one of the emails.

Attempts to reach Starks-Sykes, including Monday, have been unsuccessful. A call to one of Robinson's family members wasn't immediately returned Monday.

In early August, The CA reported MCS' acknowledgment that a counselor changed grades belonging to Robinson, who enrolled to play football at Auburn. MCS said an inquiry from the NCAA prompted the transcript's discovery, and Robinson was later ruled ineligible at Auburn.


The third paragraph in the article. He was hardly cleared.

The article failed to mention Auburn is the one who found the discrepancy and reported it to the NCAA. Convenient to leave out that tidbit.

This. There is a difference between "He was cleared" and "His case was closed."

Title is misleading in reference to jovon himself, all this states is no one else was involved, which is good for auburn. Jovon still has to deal with the grades.

I read this and the words "butt" & "hurt" come to mind
