"Belmont's Curb College is the largest stand alone music business college in the nation and more than half of Belmont's students study either the music business or music in general. All of us know that there are gay students at Belmont who are also very concerned [about Belmont's policy]. When our students enter the workforce, they will be entering an industry where gay people have made incredible contributions. Hopefully, Belmont will offer to re-hire Lisa Howe, and hopefully this type of injustice will never happen again."
