  • SAY “NO” TO F&M!

    Posted on March 10th, 2010 Becky 12 comments

    [This box has been on the home page of incesttragedy.com for several years now.  I will have to change it shortly.  I originally wrote to President Fry on August 6, 2003 (click here).  He brushed me off and he and his staff have been nothing but rude to me ever since. We’ll see if the new President of F&M also condones incest and sexual abuse!]

     

    SAY “NO” TO F&M

         Franklin & Marshall College, a liberal arts college in Lancaster, PA, annually gives an award named after an incest perpetrator and academic fraud – my father.  The president of the college, John A. Fry, doesn’t care about sexual abuse.  He doesn’t care if your daughter or son is sexually abused.

         Do not send your children to this over-priced college that condones the sexual abuse of children. They will not be safe.

    1. They are rude because of what the court system says. When you took your father to court and the court says there is not enough information, of course they are going to assume you are just a pest.

      I plan on going to Franklin and Marshall to open up my chances to go to Johns Hopkins for grad school. I’m sorry to say that this is a personal matter for you that should be between you and your father. The college just goes with what the court system says. I highly doubt if your dad did anything, that he’d go around bragging he abused his daughter.

      You do have good stories, but this one is just laughed at by many, even outside of F&M. I even have a relative who works at F&M. I guess she is all for sexual abuse now, even though she worked in social work for abused children and women.

    2. And did John A. Fry actually tell you he doesn’t care? I’d love to see an actual letter or even voice recording that this man did not care about sexual abuse.

    3. I find ou today that Helen Y.Bowman, Vice President of Finance and Treasurer – WoW! Now who did dhe pay off to get this gig. She is definitely not qualified for this postion, since when she worked for CIGNA insurance she recently got promoted to Director of Finance -more like a Controllor type role of a very small group of 20. Additionally, any time some asked her questions about the budget, she would nver give you a clear, direct or even accurate answer. At Senior level meetings, she would just sit there with her big chunky braclets and rings with noting of substance to add. So, how did she get this positions? Is she a friend of Fry???

    4. Is Franklin & Marshall a respectable college

    5. Becky, I don’t know how old you are, but here is what the law says if you were assaulted prior to 18 (it was amended)

      (3) Any sexual offense committed against a minor who is
      less than 18 years of age any time up to the later of the
      period of limitation provided by law after the minor has
      reached 18 years of age or the date the minor reaches 50
      years of age. As used in this paragraph, the term “sexual
      offense” means a crime under the following provisions of
      Title 18 (relating to crimes and offenses):
      Section 3121 (relating to rape).
      Section 3122.1 (relating to statutory sexual
      assault).
      Section 3123 (relating to involuntary deviate sexual
      intercourse).
      Section 3124.1 (relating to sexual assault).
      Section 3125 (relating to aggravated indecent
      assault).
      Section 3126 (relating to indecent assault).
      Section 3127 (relating to indecent exposure).
      Section 4302 (relating to incest).
      Section 4304 (relating to endangering welfare of
      children).
      Section 6301 (relating to corruption of minors).
      Section 6312(b) (relating to sexual abuse of
      children).
      Section 6320 (relating to sexual exploitation of
      children).

    6. By the way, that was Section 5552 of Title 42.

    7. To the naysayers, you need to look at the entire family dynamic here. Something very wrong went on in that house.

    8. Something very wrong always goes on in a certain house with you people. It’s always behind the scenes conspiracy theories! I bet a lot of you believe that 9-11 was an inside job or by a Jewish group and not Islamic radicals.

      You are just middle aged freaks who have yet to get over themselves. It happened a long time ago. life goes on, stop trying to change the past! it’s not going to work! When you are in your 30s, 40s, or 50s and still try to get people in trouble from when you were 0-18 years of age, you just look like a joke.

      Bad things happen to all of us. You can get stuck in the past pretending someone will listen, or you can move on with life and help people who are being abused. Writing about old news and accusing a college of something stupid is not helping people.

      Apparently the college and your family have moved on because I don’t see them with a facebook page or blog site talking about your tragic lives. Franklin and Marshall moved on which is why they treat you like crap. Half the people in the office probably have no clue who you are and why you are calling. So they will feel threatened and uncomfortable and will hang up because of that.

    9. Looks like the F&M propaganda machine is going into overtime.

    10. Is that all you can really say little orbit? We all have crappy lives. I go to HACC right now and have not had the best life. Millions of others have the same stories. The only thing that seperates people is how they deal with stuff. You can look like an idiot and dwell on silly stuff and never move forward, or you can make something of yourself.

      Going from HACC to Franklin and Marshall is a hard thing. Especially when F&M only takes 12 transfers a year. I could easily get into Millersville or many other colleges on their list. I’ve seen my father die when I was younger right in front of my eyes, I see the government hound my mother because she has no money at all, and I have a part time job to pay for vehicle insurance, gas, and books. If something happened a long time ago and I am still talking about it now, then I have no one to blame but myself. Yes there is a chance Becky was abused, but there is a time when you cross the line of victim to someone who wants attention.

      There is more to the story than me being a propaganda machine. I am proud that I have the opportunity to go to a nice school. I do not know what your situation is, but I think this attack on F&M is just rediculous. There are more professional ways to go about it than making up information to gain for yourself. If Becky was really a victim of sexual abuse, I’d love to see her help people who are being abused now.

    11. Anonymous: I would be very happy to recommend colleges that cost a LOT less than F&M, are ranked higher, and have a higher rate of acceptance into Johns Hopkins for grad school.

      I paid for every cent of my education as well, through to grad school. I regret that you have taken some of these comments personally. And in all good faith, scout out some of the higher ranked, much lower cost schools before you settle for F&M.

    12. I mean no harm with my comments either. You can argue that F&M is high priced, but to try and convince with personal matters (that really have nothing to do with the now) is just childish.

      I will have to discuss colleges somehow, later with you.
