Dr. Wilson called on the Morgan State University community “to stay true to Morgan values of respect, leadership, diversity, excellence, innovation.”
According to data from the Gun Violence Archive, Saturday’s mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh marks the 294th mass shooting this year.
“Embrace Unity…Unite Against Hate,” wrote Career Communications Group CEO Tyrone Taborn on his Facebook wall.
“As a member of the Morgan State Board of Regents, I am posting a message from President David Wilson. It represents my position as a Regent, governor appointee, person, and CEO of Career Communications Group,” he said.
