Alabama State University hosted leaders of the local faith community at the annual “It’s a Great Time Breakfast.”
Leaders of Montgomery’s faith community were invited the Alabama State University campus on Saturday, Feb. 23 for breakfast, updates and a tour of the New ASU Stadium during the annual “It’s a Great Time Breakfast.”
The event, which was held in the club lounge of the New ASU Stadium, featured a full breakfast provided by Gourmet Services Inc.
While dining, clergy and youth ministry leaders heard from officials about new and exciting developments occurring at ASU.
Attendees watched the special “Our House” video featuring acclaimed Hollywood actor Samuel L. Jackson that played before the inaugural game (Turkey Day Classic) in the New ASU Stadium in November.
Facilities management director Gina Jobe-Ishman shared fun facts about the stadium and instructions on how to reserve the facility for events. Vice President for University Relations Danielle M. Kennedy told the group about ASU’s new academic programs and recent recognitions, and ASU Interim President William H. Harris offered remarks.
Harris reflected on the success of the stadium’s opening and discussed how returning ASU’s football tradition to the campus will allow more people to see the totality of ASU’s offerings.
That day in November (Thanksgiving), there were more people on this campus of ASU than at any time in our history, and it was a great time to see that many people,” Harris said. “We need people to see ASU, so they can begin to see and feel where the University is, and that’s why we’re here this morning.”
