SCV Telegraph- Dixie State College
you are probably now aware, Dixie
State College in St. George, Utah
recently moved a statue depicting a
Confederate soldier and Battle flag.
This is an incredible piece of art and
would, no doubt, be welcomed by us if
it needed to be relocated.
are still in the midst of a Heritage
battle to bring back the statue,
preserve the name of the institution
(which is also at risk) and start a
camp in the area.
Communications with the college are
premature, unauthorized and do not
present a united front for the SCV.
membership in that area is not large
and financial resources are slight,
as well. However, there is much
unrest in the community and among
Dixie alums over what has transpired.
Our men in that area are hoping to
leverage that circumstance to fight
this battle. It also presents us with
an excellent opportunity to introduce
the community to the SCV and do some
effective PR work
Furthermore, Dixie is a
state institution; if this battle is
going to be fought, the legislature
should be engaged. They will return
for session in a few weeks. We really
should not assume this situation to
be resolved until they have weighed
in on it.
now, the administration that has
taken this action should be
considered hostile to our purposes and
values. Now is not the time for
unauthorized unilateral discussions to
begin with them.
