He also said they would have to do right by the 125 students involved with the program" including the 25 who graduated and 39 who were still enrolled when the campus was dissolved.Bowles thanked NCCU Chancellor Charlie Nelms for his handling of the situation" which was the doing of the prior administration.""I want to say" up front thank God for Charlie Nelms" he said.
