Alcorn plans presidential inauguration festivities

Published 1:46 pm Friday, October 24, 2008

Alcorn State University will hold an inauguration ceremony next week for George Ross, the school’s 17th president.

Ross took control of the historically black college in January, more than a year after President Clinton Bristow Jr. died while jogging on campus.

The inauguration ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. on Oct. 31 at the Davey L. Whitney Complex on campus.

Alcorn will continue celebrations from this weekend’s Homecoming with a week of inauguration events leading up to the president’s ceremony.
