"Trinea Gonczar, who has known Nassar since childhood and may have been one of his earliest victims, was among a dozen or so protesters wearing a teal t-shirt emblazoned with the statement: "I stand with the sister survivors" and "#Me Too MSU".
During the MSU Board of Trustees meeting Friday morning, Kaylee Lorincz revealed MSU interim President John Engler offered her $250,000 to settle her case against the university several weeks ago.
"There's new leadership in nearly all of these places, so I think the ability of Michigan State to respond is dramatically different and better than it was a year ago", he said. My hope was that maybe if he actually met a survivor he might become more empathetic to what we're experiencing. "He has said some hurtful things and I wanted him to know that when he does that, he causes me to feel victimized all over again".
"I felt like I was being bullied into saying something and that if Rachael gave him a settlement amount, it was okay for me to do it too", Lorincz said. Carol Viventi, Vice President and Special Counsel to the President, was also in the meeting she said. He told us he would see us if we could wait a few minutes.
"I just wanted a five-minute conversation to introduce myself and to let President Engler be able to put a face with the word survivor since he has not met with any of the girls", Lorincz later told ESPN.
Lorincz said that when she explained it wasn't about the money, he told her to give her a number.
"He also said that he had met with Rachel Denhollender, and that she gave him a number".
Denhollander was the first survivor to file a criminal complaint against Larry Nassar back in 2016. When asked if Engler had mentioned a dollar amount during the meeting, Guerrant said no.

She detailed a conversation that had taken place between her and Engler - without her lawyer present - in which Engler offered her $250,000 to drop the civil suit. "President Engler's main focus was dollar signs". My mom interrupted and said what about former Dean Strampel? Wasn't he just arrested?
She said she expressed an interest in working with the university to try to improve the way it has handled sexual assault cases on campus. Auto-Owners Insurance spokesman Trevor Mahoney told The Associated Press at the time that the company did not deem it appropriate to showcase advertising "during discussions of serious topics that have impacted the lives of many".
She persisted and kept speaking, saying MSU tried to make them feel like they (the victims) were the problem and that the school was the victim.
That lawsuit claims that Michigan State has "fostered a culture in which female victims are discouraged from reporting sexual assaults when those assaults are perpetrated by male athletes, thus protecting the university, the male athletics programs, and the male athletes at the expense of the female victims".
"You can't even adequately convey his body language and his tone in a statement", Lisa Lorincz, Kaylee's mother, told NBC News after the hearing ended. In December, I described to you bits and pieces of my assault by Larry Nassar. I can no longer care about helping MSU, and you guys, certainly, do not.
"I think there's a lot they could do right and they're choosing not to do right", said Gonczari, 37, of Detroit.
