Powering Minds: announcement today
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.
