Week ending February 28th

Lots of stuff going on this week!

Big win for the guys vs Xavier- split the season series. Ladies lost which also splits the season. Looks like we're headed for rematches with both in the tournament.

On Friday we had our Hobley scholarship gala. One of the honorees was Dillard alum George Johnson '70 who was on the Golden State Warriors championship team 40 years ago.

I was traveling Friday so I missed the inauguration of new Xavier president Reynold Verret. But Livestream allowed me to hear his speech while waiting to change planes in Atlanta.

I was coming back from Pittsburgh speaking at the Northeast Greek Leadership conference. I am guessing about 1,000 college students attended, and I had the keynote Friday morning.

My point is that as Greek we say LOTS of great things, but our actions are in conflict with those ideas. I showed the just the news in one week: a suspected hazing related death, pledges being forced to act like slaves, one school with seven chapters being investigated, etc.

Looking forward to this week as I will see my presidential colleagues at the annual meeting of UNCF.
