Monday Mission, 2/22/10
Our colleague, Emily Hynds, went straight for the basket with her own Monday Mission a few minutes ago, so I'm making a last-minute play change. When she said "our men's basketball team has had quite a difficult season," it was an understatement. Tonight is Senior Night. In addition to honoring our senior student-athletes, we'll also honor the memory of Jim Griffin, who died last September. Jim's family will be present to receive a resolution from our Board of Trustees. Let's join Emily Hynds and her friends tonight at the Pete Hanna Center.
The world is better because Samford embraces people who deserve our support.
