Obama Likeness Found Hanging at George Fox Campus

A likeness of Sen. Barack Obama was found hanging in the George Fox University quad early Tuesday along with graffiti aimed at minority recipients of a scholarship program, the university president told The Oregonian this morning.

A custodian discovered the cutout of Obama about 7 a.m. Tuesday and removed it. The cutout was hung from a tree with fishing line near Minthorn Hall. He said the image of the African-American Democratic nominee for president was accompanied by the words “Act Six reject.”

Act Six is a scholarship program that was established two years ago and is aimed at including more low-income and minority students in the George Fox student body, Baker said. Students are chosen for their leadership potential; all receive full scholarships.
