Banner Day

Trinity University participates in the MLK Day march with what may have been the biggest single contingency in the annual San Antonio march. Over 325 people from Trinity participated in the march of over 100,000 total participants - both record numbers.

Ankita Rakhe from the CCI Office on campus did a terrific job organizing, publicizing, and implementing the march details. The weather was sunny, with perfect temperatures for the three mile march. As professor Tucker Gibson commented, "The march has more than symbolic significance in San Antonio. The benefits of this are very real to the San Antonio community." Or as I put it to my daughter: "Joelle, stop bumping me with the stroller." Okay, there are differing levels of eloquence -- nevertheless, the march was an event to remember, for the city, and for Trinity.

I had the pleasure of marching 3 years ago with my then 6 year old daughter and it is one of my favorite memories. I think this year is especially significant with the inauguration of our 44th president. Ankita, you do great work!
