Black Alumni Weekend

Weekend Recap

The 2017 Black Alumni Weekend was a wonderful time spent with alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends who gathered to reconnect with one another and the university.

Black Alumni traveled from near and far to spend time with former classmates, current students and members of the local community. This great event offered a unique experience for the campus community to see a valuable constituency group return and give back to their alma mater.

The weekend, which coincided with A-Day, included a lunch with Coach Chuck Person on Thursday, a Friday night mixer, A-Day tailgate, and the Saturday night awards dinner and dance.

During the awards dinner 9 recipients were honored as leaders in their respective fields and for dedicating their time and efforts to Auburn University.

They were Valentin Abe ’91, Ernest Boyd ’76, Gregory Philip Curtis ’11, Angela Jenkins ’94, Christopher Martin ’12, Carl McMillian ’87, Dawn Oliver ’97, Anthony Salandy ’98, Mychal Walker ’79.

If you missed this year’s Black Alumni Weekend, we hope you will be able to join us next time as we look forward to reconnecting with you, our family.
