|Ecclesia? Ecclesia? Never heard of it.|
I'm on the board?
Pat Boone listed on Arkansas college's board of regents, said he's never heard of the school:
"Singer Pat Boone said he has never heard of Ecclesia College and doesn't know why he is listed on the Springdale school's board of regents.
Robin Whitmore, Boone's assistant, relayed the message to a reporter after speaking with Boone on Tuesday night.
"Pat said he's not only not on the board, he's never even heard of this college," Whitmore said. "He said he would love to know who the person is who put his name on there because that is just wrong information."
Boone, 82, and nine other people are listed as "featured" members of the board of regents on the college's website, ecollege.edu/regents.
Last week, Ecclesia College President Oren Paris III was charged in federal court with nine counts of wire fraud and one count of mail fraud in a kickback case involving state legislators and hundreds of thousands of dollars in state funds.
Paris hasn't returned telephone calls or emails seeking comment about the indictment or the board of regents.
Attempts to reach members of Ecclesia's board of regents or its board of governance also have been difficult.
Steve Henderson, president of Christian Consulting for Colleges and Ministries Inc., said Friday that he was surprised to learn he was listed on Ecclesia's board of regents, although he does know Paris.
"I don't know how I got listed," Henderson said."
