To be clear, Alabama State University President Gwendolyn Boyd needs no saving. Even if she is the absolute wrong choice to lead her alma mater, if she is the spending-happy, back talking president some former and current members of the ASU Board of Trustees have made her out to be, two things remain clear about their relationship: They picked her, and she doesn't need them or the job to cap an already remarkable life and career.

But at some point, there has to be a reckoning for the way the board has mishandled its communication and oversight of Dr. Boyd, and the public turmoil and potential damage it has caused for the university. Obviously, the board's dysfunction and malfeasance far precedes her tenure, but Boyd as an alumnus and history-making president deserves more because her presidency should mean more. It should mean more for the board in preserving her leadership for the long-term, and it should mean more to the students and alumni just looking for Alabama State to be above national controversy for more than a month at a time.
But most of all, it should mean more to Dr. Boyd's core of support, a sisterhood that has transcended leadership, political influence and social capital for decades, and should consider using the might of its power to influence the direction of the ASU Board on behalf of its former national president.
Dr. Boyd is credentialed enough and astute enough to do fine in the presidency, were the board not so willfully malicious and historically inept. But given those circumstances, it takes a unique kind of advocacy to keep Boyd out of harm's way and in the HBCU circle of leadership.
Whatever the reason, Dr. Boyd is seemingly a woman on an island in Montgomery.
And with more than 300,000 women around the world she can call upon as 'soror,' that should definitely not be the case.
Dr. Boyd didn't come to exorcise the board, but to right the way for Alabama State to reemerge as a national institution of value to Black America.

President Dr. Gwendolyn E. Boyd (BIO)

Executive Board of Directors
Alabama State University
A nationally recognized champion of education, Boyd has spearheaded efforts across the nation and in other countries to help broaden the scope of educational offerings, especially as it relates to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines. Because of her efforts in advancing education, Boyd was nominated by President Barack Obama and received U.S. Senate confirmation to serve as a trustee to the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation in 2009.
President Barack Obama has appointed Boyd to the President's Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for African-Americans.
Boyd also is a minister and an ordained itinerant elder in the AME Church. While in Maryland, she served on the ministerial staff of Ebenezer AME Church in Fort Washington, Md. In 2000, Boyd was elected to serve as the 22nd National President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., an international organization of more than 250,000 members. Known as the "Technology President," Boyd helped to establish technology in all facets of the sorority's activities and administration. Her four-year tenure as president included a number of transformative accomplishments, including the launching of Project SEE (Science in Everyday Experiences), an initiative funded by a $1.6 million National Science Foundation grant with a goal of promoting math and science for middle school African-American girls. She also led the sorority's humanitarian and education advocacy efforts in various parts of Africa, including Swaziland, Lesotho and Soweto, South Africa. In 2013, Boyd served as chair of the sorority's Centennial Celebration, which involved organizing a year-long series of events culminating in a Washington, D.C.-based convention that drew more than 40,000 participants from around the world. Boyd is a lifelong community servant, having served on boards of local, national and international organizations, including the Links, Incorporated; Children's National Health Center in Washington, D.C.; the National Partnership for Community Leadership; the United Way; and the APL Federal Credit Union. Her work has earned dozens of awards and honors, including two honorary doctorates and Congressional recognitions.
