The Newsroom: A long, hard look at Cape Fear Community College
On this episode: Over the last three years, rumors have circulated, alleging a toxic workplace at CFCC under the administration of President Jim Morton. In early 2020, WECT published a report with on-the-record allegations, but it seems little has changed. Now, new reporting from WHQR's Rachel Keith goes deeper than ever into issues at the college.
First up on the show, a conversation with WECT investigative reporter Ann McAdams, who has covered CFCC for years, including controversies over formerPresident Dr. Ted Spring, the abrupt resignation of former President Dr. Amanda Lee, and concerns around the hiring of Jim Morton — all leading up to a report in early 2020 on workplace allegations.
