On April 25, 2013 Philander Smith College held the 2013 Renaissance Awards Ceremony. A large number of faculty, staff, and students were celebrated for their dedication and service. I am pictured above with a Presidential Award to Robert Young for providing excellent customer service on the Philander Smith College Campus.
Attendees include (from left to right) Alex Erdmann, Myisha Headen, Arkansas First Lady Ginger Bebee, De’Vonta Moore, and Residential Life Assistant Director Termaine Williams.
I had the opportunity to attend a wonderful meeting today with Pulaski Technical College President, Dr. Margaret A. Ellibee P.h.D in an effort to forge a partnership between the two schools. I am extremely excited about what this could mean for the future of both institutions.
I recently attended a Key cities event with Alumni from the Dallas area. As you know we rely heavily upon the support of our alumni. Key cities is an outreach program designed to engage Philander alumni throughout the United States. I thouroughly enjoy each visit.
This week on the campus of Philander Smith College, we celebrated Religious Emphasis Week.

Last week, at the New Student Orientation, I welcomed new students and parents to our campus for the Spring 2013 Semester. I am looking forward to an exciting and productive spring semester.
Christmas break 2013 will go into the books as one to remember… We experienced over 10 inches of snow in my neighborhood and were without electricity for 3 days. The picture above was my first attempt to travel through my neighborhood after the snowfall. As you can, see trees covered most of the roadway and road conditions were treacherous.
I did enjoy spending some quality time at home with my family. Jonathan and I were able to make snow angels and attempted to build a snowman but the snow was to dry. The snowfall definitely made our First Christmas back to Arkansas in many years one my family will always remember.
