Thank You for a Wonderful Holiday Celebration

Today, administrators, faculty and staff gathered together for the annual Holiday Celebration. This marked the first time the event was held in-person in two years. It felt so good to join our fellow Bulldogs for music, dancing, games and fellowship.

This celebration would not have been possible without the commitment and hard work of the planning committee.

Thank you to Conference and Event Services including Annette Wedderburn and Chandra Hicks De’Jesus for leading the committee, which executed a wonderful event for our BSU family. Committee members included:

  • Ms. Thomasina Boardley
  • Ms. Wanda Rene’ Howard
  • Ms. Erica M. Johnson
  • Ms. Tanya P. Jones
  • Ms. Khadeja Gbessay Kourouma
  • Ms. Angela Denise Morton
  • Ms. Joan Smallwood
  • Mr. Steve Stephens II
  • Ms. Marsha Swindell
  • Ms. Alona Turner
  • Ms. Kimberly Ann Turner
  • Mr. Jabari S. Walker
  • Ms. Dorothy Wigglesworth

Additionally, I want to recognize the BSU students who provided beloved holiday musical selections during the event and the faculty and staff members who attended.

I wish you and your family a joyous holiday season! I hope you join us in honoring and celebrating our graduates during Winter Commencement on Thursday, December 22. And, I look forward to welcoming you back to campus in the new year.
