#3: The North Coast Journal dives into sexual assault allegations made by former Cal Poly Humboldt WBB S-A Clifton against the husband of Humboldt WBB HC Bento-Jackson.

She did not feel comfortable returning to campus, in part due to public comments made by Humboldt Prez Jackson about Title IX, and is now at Academy of Art. Bento-Jackson insinuates Clifton is retaliating against her for suggesting a reduction in aid would likely be coming and recruits at her position were going to be brought in.

A lot of things have come together at the same time. The timing has converged and we don’t want to wait around. People believe in what we’re doing. People believe in Christian education." (link)
