Also on this Monday morning, the Forward Rebels group is back with another full-page ad, this one headlined, “How much money is Pete Boone costing Ole Miss? … Find out soon.”
The ad calls the “running tab” of lost donations a “travesty.”
The school is in the midst of a $150 million capital campaign and has released updates of its fund-raising success, the most recent having the campaign above $40 million.
The ad says, “Pete Boone and Co. are happy to ride inflaction, increased student enrollment and new ticket taxes as successful fund-raising. We disagree.”
It also asks the question, “Are you not giving or giving less because of Boone?” and encourages people to share their stories. It guarantees confidentiality for those who submit stories.
