Arrowmont gets respite–for now

The economic crash of October has saved Arrowmont from being forced to leave Gatlinburg.  Fortunately, the developers with the big plans have bailed, but the die has been cast: The Pi Phi fraternity will sell that property sooner or later.

Arrowmont has seen an outpouring of support from all over, and now, during this respite, is the time to rally those groups and individuals to get the School on a firmer financial footing, assess what it would take to move, or make a good case for staying in Gatlinburg.

The worse thing that Arrowmont could do is go back to business as usual–head in the sand–and then act surprised when Pi Phi finally finds a buyer down the line.  This whole episode should serve as a wake-up call.  It remains to be seen if the School has leadership with savvy to heed it.
