I had the wonderful opportunity to join my Mom and help her celebrate her 45th college reunion at Alabama A&M University. My Mother had not been back to the campus since she graduated in 1969 and it was great to witness her soak up all the memories and enjoy old college friends on the drastically improved campus. Many of you are probably not familiar with AAMU so here are a couple of facts:
1) Established in 1875 as the Huntsville Normal School.
2) It was designated a land-grant institution by the state of Alabama in 1891 and is one of the largest college campuses in the U.S.
3) AAMU is ranked #10 in the nation by the U.S. Department of Education on Accessibility, Affordability and Outcomes.
I stopped to pose with the flag before heading to the Pavers Ceremony. The ceremony was to announce those who would receive a stone in their name on the main campus walk way after giving a donation towards the AAMU endowment.
Here we are standing in front of one of the new science buildings that was named after one of my Mom’s professor. He apparently had a ‘thing’ for the pretty, young ladies…lol!
A look at the beautiful campus.
The class of ’69 was still looking pretty good!

I know my Mom enjoyed her early Mother’s Day gift as much as I did. Love you Mom!
