WOW!!! Howard held your boy down this weekend. I got butterflies when I landed at Reagan International, just remembering all the times I had in the Chocolate City, by far my favorite place to be.
They had Bren, Harold and I with the first class treatment from the time we stepped off the plane. Limo driver the entire time, Gold Floor status at the Fairmont Hotel, everything. See at Howard, a first class university, we go first class or no class at all!
I was able to get up with some of my old teammates for a great night on the town Thursday.
Friday was the 141st Opening Convocation at Howard, this was the introduction of our 16th President as well, Dr. Sidney A. Ribeau. I had the honor of being introduced and honored by him as well.
I signed some posters and programs as well. I always saw these commendations around the Administration Building and it is a great honor to be place amongst the greats that have roamed that campus.
I was able to see Coach Merritt, one of the first people to believe in my track and field abilities as well. It was great to catch up with him.
After the Convocation ceremonies, we had a lunch with President Ribeau, his wife, my mom, Harold, my uncle Randy (below) and several other Howard Alum stallworts.
You know Friday we got it in as well, had the limo riding around several spots. We hit Love REAL quick, I mean 10 minutes, it was pretty lame, we settled in at some spot I never heard of and had a pretty good time.
I hate when it comes time for me to leave D.C.!! At least I will be back in a couple weeks for the legendary Howard Homecoming!
