This week was a special week since it was Morgan State Homecoming. Unfortunately, inclement weather occurred it was drizzly cold day and this affected my promo items that should have been completely distributed in its entirety. This event was all about catching the students and alumni arriving and leaving the game. I had posters of Atlantic Records money making line ups Pretty Ricky, T.I. Jasmine Sullivan, Jennifer Hudson, Young Steff and many more. Then for my priority selected play list played Atlantic Record artist. The speakers and the D.J. were right on point. The songs definitely caused flashbacks for students because these songs are in heavy rotation during Morgan club take over. Various artists had latest tracks to give the Homecoming crowd. I did the best I could do with the tragic weather. So I took a business decision and hand out the reminding promo items and distributed it to the excited students. Campus is populated with students and it worked perfectly. Everything was done and I feel that I advocated Atlantic Records to all that would listen.

As a mother myself, I can only imagine the hurt and disbelief felt from this devastating news.
