Interim MSU President John Engler has appointed Bill Beekman to serve as the university’s interim Athletic Director.     Beekman is an MSU vice president and secretary to the Board of Trustees. He served as acting president for a short time after the resignation of Lou Anna Simon in the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal. That ended with the Engler appointment last week.

On Feb. 5, former Michigan Governor John Engler officially takes over as the interim president of Michigan State University.  In  accepting the post, Engler vowed to “treat every survivor and every student as I would my own daughter.”

That pledge is on the mind of every parent with a child now attending MSU...and everyone who will send their own daughters – and sons – to campus as an incoming freshman.

A father of three victims tried to attack Larry Nassar in a Michigan courtroom on Friday after a judge declined his request for a few minutes alone in a locked room with the "demon" former sports doctor. He was blocked by an attorney and tackled by sheriff's deputies.

Judge Janice Cunningham of Eaton County’s Circuit Court will hear more statements from victims of Larry Nassar on Friday.

On Wednesday, she heard from 29 victims in person, by video, and through written statements read aloud. Some of the women, like Katherine Ebert, had strong words for Michigan State University.

One of the survivors of Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse has accepted the apology of Meridian Township officials over the handling of her 2004 complaint against the former sports medicine physician. Brianne Randall-Gay pursued a criminal complaint against Nassar with Meridian Township police in 2004, but the department decided not to pursue charges after Nassar convinced them that he had conducted a legitimate medical procedure.

The Meridian Township police department missed an opportunity to pursue criminal charges in 2004 against Larry Nassar and will publicly apologize to the victim who accused the doctor of molesting her during treatment for an abnormal spine, an official said Wednesday.
