Proposed stadium at JSU worthy of hearing - The Clarion-Ledger, 25 Feb 2007 [cached]
This group includes former JSU football coach W.C. Gorden as well as Ivory Phillips, a retired university professor and former president of the JSU Faculty Senate.
Gorden's issue is sentimental.He won more football games than any other coach in JSU history, most inside Veterans Memorial Stadium.Still, that's no reason to stand in the way of something that clearly would make JSU football more competitive.
Gorden should rest easy because his legacy is intact.
Phillips is best known for opposing any measures the administrations of former president James Lyons and current President Ronald Mason support.
In this instance, Phillips should put his personal agenda aside and support what's not only in JSU's best interest but something that will also pay huge dividends for the medical center and for Mississippi.
JPS Board Member Ivory ..., 9 Sept 2011 [cached]
JPS Board Member Ivory Phillips said the district is spending too much on non-instructional components of its strings program.
At that time, Board Member Ivory Phillips voted against renewing the symphony's contract. After outcry from parents, the board voted 4-0 to renew the contract, this time with Phillips voting in favor of renewal.
Phillips said he is concerned about the "non-instructional" components of the program, which include demonstrations of the instruments by symphony members and student performances. He said non-instructional components are too expensive at this time.
"So you're suggesting we just teach them but never let them perform? Board President Kisiah Nolan asked.
Phillips replied that students should be allowed to perform, but JPS could manage performances instead of the symphony.
Phillips said the board needs more time to consider the cost, especially how much the program would cost if more students participated.
"I'm quite a connoisseur of music, I think ... but I would really like us to think now about the non-instructional component," he said.
Phillips made a motion to delay the vote for a week while the board studied the symphony's contract, but the motion died for lack of a second. The board voted 6-1 to renew JPS's contract with the symphony, with Phillips voting in opposition.
Phillips said he did not think a consultant was necessary to find a superintendent, and he voted against hiring one, citing budgetary concerns.
Did Phillips really just propose that the already overburdened JPS staff take over the duties of coordinating and setting up the concerts?
Dr. Ivory Phillips - all I got to say, if he see's something he doesn't concur with, watch out.

Ivory Phillips, dean of JSU's College of Education and Human Development, said most of the teachers are on the job now.
Phillips said the program deliberately tried to get Delta residents involved with the idea that they were more likely to stay on the job if they were teaching near home.
