Jimmy Epton is the former president of North Greenville University, a Christian college, where he held that position for 24 years. Last year, the university announced that he would be taking a semester-long sabbatical before retiring this past June. Well, now it seems that the reason for this forced retirement is due to infidelity with one of his staff members. A video surfaced of Epton’s son catching him in the act of cheating.
How big of balls do you have to have in order to out your own dad like that?
The school released the following statement regarding the video.
From Greenville Online:
In the statement released Thursday afternoon by the school’s board of trustees, Chairwoman Beverly Hawkins said, “North Greenville University’s leaders are expected to lead Christ-centered lives and abide by all campus policies and procedures.”
“The administration and faculty on campus today reflect our legal, moral and ethical expectations. We take our responsibilities as leaders of a Christian institution seriously and hold each member of our community to the highest of standards,” the statement said.
Does anyone else find irony in the fact that the man who ran a Christian university was found to be cheating on his wife? What’s that? Everyone does? Yeah, I thought so..
