Philander Smith College hosted an approximate 1,000 guests who flocked to campus for a grassroots organizing meeting with Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton on Monday, September 21st in Little Rock. PSC President Dr. Roderick L. Smothers introduced the former first lady whose public service resume also includes stints as a U.S. Senator and U.S. Secretary of Defense.
During Clinton’s appearance, the PSC Drumline performed to an enthusiastic crowd. They were followed by PSC Student Government Association President Tanisha Manning ’16 whose address energized the attendees and set the tone for the remainder of the event.
Following her remarks, Clinton greeted the crowd and had a brief, private “photo opp” with members of the drumline. Coordinated by the Clinton Campaign, the non-ticketed event was free and open to the public. This article originally appeared on PS
