Golden years

It's hard to say "farewell" to any member of the Wildcat family. That's especially true of those who have been fixtures on campus for many years. At a retirement banquet last week, we attempted to do just that. The following Fort Valley State University employees were honored and lauded for their service:

Mrs. Barbara Davis, clerical lead, President’s Office
Dr. Yvonne Oliver, associate vice president academic affairs
Mrs. Janice A. Nelson, director of FVSU Foundation
Ms. Lauren Glover, residential life dorm director
Mrs. Gwendolyn Davison, residential life dorm director
Sgt. Richard Bizzell, campus police
Mr. Bonzie Lee Curtis, plant operations
Ms. Alveta Taylor, plant operations
Dr. Nathaniel B. Brown Jr., Head of Agricultural Economics
Rev. Dr. Willie Wright, Research Professional, Agriculture
Ms. Nellie Perry, Head Start, Family Consumer Sciences
Mrs. Mattie Watson, Head Start, Family Consumer Sciences
Ms. Annie Reeves, Residential Life
Mr. Leroy Troupe, Campus Safety
Ms. Shirley Dunn, Office of Title III
Ms. Phyllis Stripling, Mass Communications, Residential Life

Of course, this being Wildcat Country, we know that we'll see most of these folks around campus again - at homecoming, football games, the Black History Month Scholarship Luncheon... After all, you can take the Wildcat off campus, but he's sure to track his way back home.
