CELEBRATING THE UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS AT PINE BLUFF HOMECOMING 2019
It's homecoming week 2019 and the hallmarks of homecoming are everywhere. Step shows, parades, tailgates, and "the game" fill our calendars while laughter, dancing, and connecting with friends fill our hearts. This week we share lifetimes of memories, and we honor our past while rejoicing in the promise of a golden future. What an exciting time to be a part of the pride! I salute and celebrate the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff as generations of alumni and students converge upon the city to get wrapped in rich tradition and steeped in undeniable strength. As a proud alum of UAPB, my time as a student was an uplifting experience that prepared me for future obstacles I would face in life. It provided motivation from classmates that I consider brothers and sisters who helped me to see my full potential, and I am eternally grateful for the professors and administrative staff who reminded us all that we are rooted in a history of excellence. Today, I appreciate every opportunity to share those same values with the next generation and am so proud to join with this city and Jefferson County in celebrating our Dear Mother! I wish everyone a safe and happy homecoming! Go Lions Go!!!
