President Denise Trauth issues statement over student body president’s social media posts

After racist and sexist Instagram posts from 2014 circulated from Student Body president Connor Clegg’s personal social media account, Clegg has since deactivated his account and apologized.
In the apology, announced via Facebook, Clegg said he has since matured and grown.
University President Denise Trauth announced via Twitter that “racism in any manifestation is abhorrent.”
“Connor has apologized,” Trauth stated. “I am hopeful that his apology truly reflects his sentiments.”
President Denise Trauth’s full statement found below.
 
Since then a petition to impeach Clegg circulated online via student groups and has since garnered over 700 endorsements.
A rally has also been announced at the Fighting Stallions sculpture at 11 a.m. on Feb. 5 to march to Trauth’s office and hand in the petition.
