King Day at Alabama State University
Yesterday I had the great honor of serving as the keynote for the annual King Convocation at Alabama State University. The new president, Dr. Gwen Boyd, is a fantastic speaker, so it was a great honor to be invited.
I was SO impressed with the students. I first spoke at ASU in 2002 to do a workshop for Greeks and those interested. Every time I have been on the campus the students have impressed me. Plus I saw two terrific high school groups, including the choir behind me in the photo that was awesome.
Next year Dillard will begin holding King convocations like this one. It was a first class event, great energy, and I guess the speaker did okay!
