Strong-Turner Alumni Chapter sets Homecoming events
The Strong-Turner Alumni Chapter (S-TAC), a chapter of the ASU Alumni Association focusing on African-American alumni and friends of the university, announces events planned for ASU's 2008 Homecoming which will be Friday-Saturday, Sept. 19-20.
The Strong-Turner Alumni Chapter was formed at Arkansas State University in 1982 and is named for Walter Strong and Frederick Turner, the first African-American graduates of A-State. The late Mr. Strong graduated with a degree in chemistry in 1959 and received a master's degree in education from ASU in 1971. Lt. Col. Turner was a 1960 graduate in education who received a master's degree in education from ASU in 1972. He is the father of 1986 ASU graduate Dr. Debbye Turner, who was Miss America 1990. The Strong-Turner Alumni Chapter was formed to meet the needs of African-American alumni. For details on the Strong-Turner Alumni Chapter or on Homecoming 2008 activities, contact the ASU Alumni Association at (870) 972-ALUM (2586), visit the Alumni website, or see the NewsPage release.
