It’s exciting to be a member of Bison Express!! It allows me to connect with the HU community and positively impact our student-athletes and the various athletic programs. HBCUs must have more financial and volunteer commitment from alumni to help them grow in unimaginable ways. HU, the real HU, is no different. This is my little contribution to help HU excel! “If it is to be, it is up to me.”
