About his tenure at Lane College, Bullock shared the following:
“The years of matriculating at Lane were truly the best years of my life. However, my time at Lane has never ended because of relationships formed. Friends were made that will last a lifetime. I fell in love with the school and my passion for her will never flicker. Any time I am on campus, I feel like I am at home and there is an inner peace and pride in her promise, importance and potential. I take pride in having a floor tile in the CMAC Building and in establishing the Kent, Beatrice and Marcus Bullock Scholarship in 2002. One of my favorite activities at Homecoming is meeting will Chicago-area students.
To my Lane College Family, those who support the College as well as those who have not reached that level of consciousness, let us be reflective of the fact that we stand on the shoulders of giants and have an obligation to invest in and cultivate a future of greatness. Let us embrace collective work and responsibility. I will see you in the village.”
