The President of Alabama A&M University and a league of dedicated staff members will travel the state of Alabama on a five-day bus tour of select metropolitan and rural areas February 25-March 1. On Wednesday, Feb. 27, they will come through the Black Belt region, including a stop at Demopolis High School.

AAMU President Andrew Hugine Jr., will be accompanied by student leaders, as well as staff from Admissions and Alumni Affairs, on the first “Community Engagement Presidential Bus Tour.” The extensive bus tour will depart Huntsville for central Alabama, proceed for two days through the east central and Black Belt region of the state, continue down to the Gulf Coast region, and then conclude on March 1 in west Alabama. Scholarships will be awarded to a few select students during their visits to different schools across the state.

“The tour provides a great opportunity for our alumni to involve themselves in efforts that further and positively expose our wonderful university throughout Alabama,” said Sandra S. Stubbs, director of alumni affairs at AAMU. “It also opens doors for continuing engagement with community leaders.”
