Due to computer errors, a story in the Dec. 1 "NEWS BRIEFS" about the
sale of campus property by the Presbyterian School of Christian Education
board of trustees (#95425) incorrectly reported maintenance costs at the
school, misspelled one name and omitted two paragraphs of the story.
The story reported that "campus-wide operating and deferred
maintenance costs are estimated at $419,942." Operating and plant
maintenance costs for 1994-95 totaled $419,942 and total deferred
maintenance costs are estimated at $4.1 million.
The Union Theological Seminary trustee named in the story is W. Taylor
Reveley, not Reverly.
The two paragraphs that should have appeared at the conclusion of the
Tom Baker, PSCE's director of institutional advancement, acknowledged
those aggrieved by the board's decision, but said there are many people in
the Richmond, Va., community who view a partnership with BTSR and PSCE as a
worthwhile "ecumenical joint venture."
"From a Christian perspective in the larger community, it's the right
thing to do," Baker said. "There are people in the community who get very
excited about an ecumenical joint venture and a Christian partnership that
would not necessarily support PSCE by itself, BTSR by itself, or
potentially UTS by itself."
