House subcommittee votes to temporarily shut SC State down, suspend athletics

South Carolina State’s financial troubles are well-documented, and now its catching up with them. A House Ways and Means Subcommittee has voted to shut the school down for two years, according to multiple reports. 

The House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Higher Education voted 3 to 1 on a proviso to shut down the university on July 1, 2015 for fiscal year 2015-2016 and reopen in 2017. 

That plan would suspend all athletics programs, fire President Thomas Elzey, dismiss faculty and state employees, terminate the Board of Trustees.

This isn’t a done deal yet, but if it happens, it would be a major blow for the state’s only public HBCU.
