Powering Minds: announcement today
As promised last week, those returning to campus following the spring break have been greeted by colorful changes, both outdoors and in. Today at 11 a.m., details about Powering Minds -- how it came about and what it means -- will be announced.  After comments by Dr. Les Wyatt, president, perspectives will be offered from the academic community by Dr. Len Frey, dean, College of Business, and from the student body by Candace Martin, president of the Student Government Association.  So, what is Powering Minds? An advance news release about Powering Minds is posted for the university community, along with an explanation of how a stone carving on ASU's 1930s-era Wilson Hall became central to a 21st century message. Congratulations are in order to the Enrollment Management Committee and subcommittees, along with the university departments and staff members who have worked hard to implement Powering Minds at ASU-Jonesboro.  Everyone is welcome to attend the announcement event on the west side of Wilson Hall.

Deadline today for nominations

The recipient will receive an engraved plaque and an honorarium at the Diversity Excellence Awards Luncheon during Convocation of Scholars Week.
