Probe Clears Interim Leader of Renowned Drum and Bugle Corps
June 29, 2018
The suspended interim CEO of a champion Pennsylvania-based drum and bugle corps will return to the organization cleared of accusations he knew about the previous director's harassment and failed to act.
Sean King was tapped to lead the parent organization that runs the Cadets — Youth Education in the Arts — in April after George Hopkins stepped down. That came after 11 women accused Hopkins of sexual harassment or abuse.
But one of Hopkins' accusers said she told King about the inappropriate behavior and King failed to act. King contended he was never told of claims of sexual abuse against Hopkins.
King will not return to his interim CEO post. He instead will work for the organization as a contractor.
