Devoted Reader Frank Admissions (who now has a permalink on my front page) sends along the links to Mark Edmonson and continuing fight for truth, justice, and admission to UNC despite his extreme senioritis and extremely shady rationalizations.
In the Charlotte Observer:
Edmonson's mother, Barbara Edmonson, said that after discussing the case with their attorney the family has decided to go ahead with the breach of contract lawsuit. "We will continue to pursue it because his acceptance was wrongly and untimely rescinded by the university," Edmonson's attorney, Marshall Hurley, said Wednesday...
Edmonson is doing volunteer work and working on his own business, a Web site-hosting company, his mother said.
"He needs to be in school," she said. "He wanted to be in school."
Really? Based on his wretched senior GPA, I never would have guessed.
Barbara Edmonson, his mother, said she and her son are going forward with the breach of contract lawsuit and are appealing his admission decision.
"I really can't believe that he's not in college at this point," she said.
You know, for a mother who sounds this concerned now, concerned enough to be quoted in every frickin' article about Mark, you have to wonder - where WAS she all last year? You know, when Mark was completely tanking in his high school classes and writing evasive letters to UNC? When he was allegedly having huge problems with medication, yet managed to pass AP exams? She can't believe he's not in college right now? Why wasn't she this incredulous when she saw his grades last April?Posted by kswygert at September 4, 2003 07:47 PM
