My fellow Talladegans and friends,
The past week I attended a soccer game for my 7-year-old grandson. He played on an artificial turf field which I imagine is much like the multi-purpose “field of dreams” recently installed at Talladega College. As I admired the field my mind wandered back to my time at Talladega and to the (then) annual freshman-sophomore football challenge. We played on an uneven, unmarked, barely mowed field that is now the site of Crawford Hall. For the record, as freshmen, the Class of 1970 defeated the sophomores. I choose not to report the results of the next year’s contest. Since we built it, will they come?
Indications are that students, faculty, and staff are adjusting to campus life under COVID-imposed restrictions. The college announced a scaled down Founders’ Weekend celebration consisting of the annual convocation, a reception with Acting President Lisa Long, a parade, a lawn party, and several athletic team events.
