Today is a landmark day in the annals of Quinnite history. It's so huge, I can't sleep. So, without any further delay, here's what has me up and out of bed at 3 am:
1. Our newly redesigned website is officially launched. Go to http://pqc.edu/ and check it out. It was designed by Narisha Johnson (go to narishajohnson.com and see who she is and what she does- other than design live websites). It is a ground-breaking website for higher education. You won't see very many college sites with the edge and attitude of the Quinnite site. It's befitting a school that is clearly headed in the right direction.
2. Today, at 1pm on the site of the old Tiger Football Field, Paul Quinn College and PepsiCo unveil the newly created "Food for Good Farm at Paul Quinn College". The Farm is the product of a joint venture between the College and one of the world's premium brands. The partnership is historic. The concept is revolutionary: instead of complaining about what others have not done or taking the easy way out and fleeing, PepsiCo and PQC are digging in and declaring that people simply deserve better and we're going to do something about it. The Farm is so many things and represents so much hope that instead of rambling on about it, I simply invite you out to see it for yourself.
3. Commencement takes place this Saturday at 5pm on the lawn of the Richard Allen Chapel. Our speaker is the legendary Dr. Frederick D. Haynes, III, Senior Pastor at Friendship-West Baptist Church in Dallas.
I'll be back shortly with pictures from today's ceremony.
Until then, I'm on to the next one,
