Is this the same Winston Alexis (Dr.) that was an All American HU first Team 1963 and also was on the winnining 1961 NAIA team?

On that note ..... All Americans from HU in soccer

Waidi Akanni 3/88
Winston Alexis 1/63
Keith “Bronco” Aqui 2/70, 1/71
Michael “Ian” Bain 1/72, HM/74
Carlton Briggs HM/64
Al Charles HM/62
Sylvanus Orialski 2/80
McDonald “Jim” Gibbs 2/58, HM/59
Bancroft Gordon 2/82
Peter Hezekiah 1/59, HM/60
Ernest Ipke HM/62
Peter Isaacs 1/89
Carlos Paul HM/63
Tyrone “Ted” Walker HM/67
Alvin Henderson 1/70, 1/71, 2/72

For each athlete, the number before the slash is level of team selection;
the number after the slash is the year selected.

1/: First Team; 2/: Second Team; 3/: Third Team; HM/: Honorable mention

Note: McDonald "Jim' Gibbs was the first ALL American from HU.... Did he play for any team on his return to Trinidad. He was a Civil Engineer in the Works Dept in the 1960's
                         

Yes, I think that is the same Alexis. When I first went to Howard I met his son and daughter. His daughter and I work in the summer youth program on campus. Very nice people.

Ted Walker played for Paragon in the early 60s. His son Tarik played for Greneda. He also played for the Baltimore Blast Indoor. I also think "Squeakie" Hinds, another TT great played for HU in the mid 60s. I think he did engineering. Not sure.

Martin Singh, junior from Trinidad, was named to the second team.

Good info.

Singh is Padareth Singh (I believe he is in Florida) .... 1961 NAIA champs....
also had Vincent Lasse in Trinidad-Transportation, Alexis(would like to say Washington DC ???) and
Hinds (Civil Engineer)- in Trinidad .....

Howard U will induct(??)the 1971 and 1974 teams in the HU Hall of Fame (September/October) this year..

I hope they also do the same for the 1961 team and recognize individuals like Hilton Clarke, Fredo Blake,
McDonald “Jim” Gibbs, Peter Hezekiah etc prior to the 1970-1981 Phillips era.

I want to salute the good doctor for making particularly useful and resonant comments during his Laventille Nights participation. Sharing his DC emergency/trauma experiences regarding young men of African descent and the fates they suffered was a timely insertion.

One comment that really reflected the doctor being a student of his environment was a comment about CIC. Did not expect him to advance the record on that. Well done. Heard the comments today and they echoed a conversation I had just yesterday. :beermug:

Following the arrival in Washington D.C. of the Trinidad and Tobago delegation led by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley on Monday 2nd May 2016, a meeting was held between Prime Minister Rowley and President of Howard University Dr Wayne Frederick today (Tuesday 3rd May, 2016).

Ah seeing that Dr. F is under pressure. A few months ago when I read this largely favorable article, I determined that this outcome was imminent. In some instances, trouble does set like rain.

The statement by the alumni association is helpful, but as these things go, not definitive of the final outcome, in my judgement.

The presidency of HU is exposed to many political considerations that university executives at other institutions (including other HBCUs) are not exposed and to which they won't be vulnerable.

Good that there will be no change of executive. There is no doubt that WF cares immensely about the stewardship of the institution (it's absolutely embedded in his personal narrative and governance). Yet, no doubt, referential lessons would have been learned on both sides. Solid.

What happened here, was it administrators embezzling money from the institution?

The institution has released a preliminary report concerning the matter.

In relevant part the report states:

 "RSM informed University management that some of those charged with management responsibilities in the Office of Student Financial Aid and the Office of the Bursar may not have been acting in the University's best interest and may have been responsible for carrying out inappropriate practices. RSM also determined the underlying cause: Financial Aid Office managers had been granted authority to implement financial aid awards without adequate external controls and consequently were able to make inappropriate aid awards without proper documentation and oversight. These findings led  to the University conducting its own investigation into individual employee conduct ..."

and

 "... some employees with management responsibilities were responsible for condoning and implementing inappropriate aid awards."

(RSM is a provider of forensic accounting services.)

Seems to be a solid and prompt dissemination by the institution. Have not read it in its entirety but it appears to be a comprehensive statement.

Separately, I'm surprised that the institution's Twitter account does not have a tweet with a link to the media release of Dr. Frederick's April 9, 2018 letter to the Howard Community and its accompanying preliminary investigative report. Twitter was used by the institution to comment on the end of the impasse and at various stages during the impasse. For that reason and others, the social media platform seems a wholly appropriate platform on which to have more broadly disseminated the document in keeping with the transparency sought. Perhaps this could be remedied.
