I am thankful to the News Tribune for keeping me informed about the 14th Annual Mister HBCU King's Competition. The event was announced in both a Bob Watson article and in Coming Events. I, for one, depend upon print journalism to keep me informed about events like this.
The event was truly inspiring. The opening dance performance depicted high points and low points in our history.
The introductory orations were well-articulated. The attire was dignified. Loud exuberant cheering gave way to respectful, attentive silence.
As Dr. Middleton pointed out, "Our country is in need of more men like this to showcase the power of motivation, education and the will to succeed."
The good news is that the auditorium was half full. The bad news is that it was half empty. More Jefferson City residents could have attended.
I would like to suggest, to the News Tribune, that, next time, they expand their coverage. Each of the events could use a larger article.
I would like, also, to suggest, to Jefferson City area residents, that they spend more time interacting with Lincoln University of Missouri. This will go a long way toward creating inter-human harmony both locally and beyond.
