Bison Roundup presents the Official Howard Alumni Experience for Homecoming 2009. This is The MAIN EVENT celebration for Alumni this Homecoming.
In the year since we’ve been together at our precious Alma Mater, we have gained and lost.
We’ve GAINED our first Black President of the United States of America (had to give the title the proper respect), and we’ve lost several key brothers and sisters. From Alumni to international figures they will be sorely missed.
As so many friends gathered to attend the Roundup Rendezvous in Miami this year, we were at once happy to be together and saddened by the death of our one time idol Michael Jackson. His loss was present the entire trip even in the greatest celebrations. So as we began our planning for Homecoming this year I was caused to remember our fallen classmates; people whose presence and absence affected my life and I’m sure many of yours as well. People like Prince Jones, Todd May, Todd Johnson, Wardel Jones, and Scotty Beats.
So this year we built an experience designed to acknowledge not only those that we lost, but also the fact that we are still here TOGETHER. As we say at the closing of so many family gatherings “Let’s not wait until something bad happens to do this again”.
So, dear family, it’s in THAT spirit I’m asking you to join BRU, and the entire alumni family, many who will travel long and far, to reminisce with us. Come celebrate our continuity, our love, and our union.
For at least this one weekend, let’s be ONE.
