St. Aug's reassigns 2 convicted killers working at Kiddie Kollege

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

St. Augustine's University has reassigned two  convicted felons who were working with the school's Kiddie Kollege program, the school confirmed in a statement Friday afternoon.

"While I remain confident in their ability, I have decided to reassign both employees to their administrative roles at the University," President Dianne Boardley Suber said in a statement. "It is paramount to maintain a positive learning environment for the children. We will continue to maintain diversity within our staff and evaluate employees on their merit."

According to the N.C. Department of Justice website, Doris Bullock was convicted in Halifax County in 1981 on second-degree murder charges. She went by Doris Braswell at the time. Bullock had been listed as the contact for the program by St. Aug's.

Deidra Gary, former Deidra Lane, was incarcerated after being convicted in 2003 of manslaughter in the death of former Carolina Panthers running back Fred Lane, who was later traded to the Indianapolis Colts.

The Kiddie Kollege Summer Program began June 17 and runs through July 19, according to the school. The day-time program is for children age 5-9 and is intended to expose young children to a university setting and develop academic interests.

Two parents in the St. Aug's area Friday gave different views of the matter.

One, Sylvia Moore, said the two camp employees should be allowed to continue.

"I think that people go to jail and pay their debt to society, and they should be given their opportunity to show that they can be productive," Moore said. "I also feel that if that's what they are doing then I think that's a great thing."

But Shandi Cheek called having two killers work with camp children "really disturbing" and said the matter was "the most ridiculous thing ever."

"If it was me personally, I would personally choke somebody out and let them know it's a violation of my child's safety and well-being," she said. " I think sometimes we get caught up in the whole second chance ordeal and I don't have a problem with folks having second chances, but when it comes to things like murder and overseeing children, that's where I have a problem with it.

"And that's why I feel like someone over there at St. Aug's needs to pay for the negligence and the non-thought that they gave to overseeing the care of these kids."
