Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Because of massive voter turnout and a great display of loyalty and enthusiasm that was amply displayed by you, students, alumni, and friends, on Tuesday I accepted, on your behalf, a check from The Home Depot in the amount of $25,000 as the Campus Pride Winner in Cluster 3. We won this based on our finishing #1 in our cluster, having amassed a total of 235,222 online and social media votes. Our nearest competitor, Wilberforce University, finished some 21,000 votes behind us.
Special thanks goes to our RYS Coordinator, Ms. Doris Bond for her great leadership; Ms. Tori Haliburton for her frequent and timely communications to all; Mr. Tony Calhoun for his online technical ingenuity; and Lane alumna and RYS Ambassador, Ms. Chicura Pearson, for her social media guidance and brilliant strategies.
Last year we won the $10,000 prize. This year, we won the $25,000 prize. We will do all that we can to make next year the charm. However, we pause now to savor this victory and offer appreciation to you for making our victory possible.
So once again, thank all of you who helped us in this endeavor. As I said last year, I am reminded of the verse from 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV) - "In everything give thanks… ."
We are thankful.
