March 27, 2006 -- After an early morning
fire destroyed its main building in January of 1931, the First District
Agricultural and Mechanical College of Jonesboro was left without most
of its classrooms, laboratories, offices and the library.
The Powering Minds badge utilizes a stylized version of The Scholar, incorporating university colors and taking part of its shape from another historic campus feature, The Arch. The Arch, which still stands just south of Wilson Hall, marked the entrance to the original administration building.
The Powering Minds theme will be implemented in various ways over the next few months, with immediate visibility on campus banners and the university web site, plus advertising and recruiting materials. In the longer term, the theme will be carried forward in the university’s Centennial Celebration materials leading up to the observance in 2009 and 2010.
