A Hard Lesson Learned


Many of you may already know that 16 of us from the school attended the Inauguration of President Barack Obama last week.  I had planned to share the experience with you via this blog. However, I mistakenly deleted the long entry I had composed on that topic.  Therefore, you'll have to trust me when I tell you that it was an amazing experience. 

However, I would be remiss if I didn't thank Washington, DC Mayor Adrian Fenty, Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, State Representative Rafael Anchia and the Obama Campaign for their kindness.  These folks made it possible for me and our students to attend this historic occasion.  An extra special "thank you" goes to Paul Quinn College corporate partner American Airlines for providing the airline tickets that allowed our students to witness this special moment in time.

Thanks and take care,
President Sorrell
