Today was the installation and convocation of Hardin-Simmons University's 15th president, Dr. Lanny Hall. Dr. Hall was also the 13th president of HSU before going to another small baptist university located about an hour and half south east from here. He then remembered where he belonged, applied after Dr. Turner left, and waaa laaa.
In today's seriess of important and highly busy events, was actual convocation. A friend from school while he was earning his Phd, Belle Wheelan , who is also president of SACS (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, AKA the people who accreditate HSU), gave the convocation speech.
She was short, to the point, and incredably entertaining. The highlight of her speech, and of the day was the following quote: "In a child psychology while teaching the benefits of breast feeding versus bottle feeding, a student asked me, 'While breast feeding, do black women have chocoalte milk.'"
She's an African American woman.
Way to go on your convocation speaker choice, Dr. Hall.
