WSSU Men's Basketball Literacy Program
This year the men's basketball program will start its first literacy program. The program will be named after my parents Ann and the late Cleo Hill Sr. Both parents were Winston Salem Teachers and college graduates in the early 60s. Both had concentrations in elementary education in English.
The first school was Brunson Elementary school in Winston-Salem on December 12th. Our student/athletes read to a Kindergarten class (teacher, Ms. Venice Hailstock, also a WSSU alum) and we also read to a third-grade class. We thank Dr Scales for allowing us to come to the school and share a beautiful morning with their students.
WSSU participants: Assistant coach Lance Beckwith, student/athletes:, Isaac Parson, Captains Jaylon Alston and Jaylon Gibson, Senior Jaylin Parker, SAAC committee representative Stefon Mcleod and Freshman Ketron Shaw.
In the future we hope to start book drive for the program
Annual WSSU Choirs Holiday Concert
Sunday, December 4, 2022 - About last night! I had a great time assisting Maestra D'Walla Simmons Burke Sunday evening and singing RAMS with their Annual WSSU Choirs holiday concert! I had a blast! The singing Rams had a packed house in the K.R. Williams Auditorium. No, I did NOT sing but saw and heard one of the most exciting concerts in a long time. In addition to the concert, the singing Rams had a meet and greet in the lobby afterward. Please support the singing Rams and Maestra Simmons Burke as they gear up for a concert in the spring at the legendary Symphony Hall in New York!
