BATON ROUGE, La. ― Southern University’s Board of Supervisors member Calvin Braxton has apparently flip-flopped.

On Wednesday, Braxton sent the Southern Board a letter of resignation that read: “Accept my recognition from the Southern University Board of Supervisors.”

Less than a day later, Braxton says he has reconsidered and intends to remain a board member.

Braxton didn’t return calls. But Board Member Myron Lawson told The Advocate Braxton told him of the change of mind.

Braxton’s resignation, then change of heart, came just two days after his fellow board members voted against a contract extension for his close friend, Southern University-Baton Rouge Chancellor James Llorens.
