    Welcome to Tuskegee, the pride of the swift growing south. It is my prayer that God’s riches blessings be upon you and your family as you join our family.

    Greetings from the Commonwealth of Virginia and welcome to the Tuskegee family! My son is a senior History/Political Science major that transferred his sophomore year from Va State University. He’s very excited about his last year, graduation and beyond. I hope at some point your paths will cross so that you may come to know the young gentleman I call Goose. (he will be so not happy about this bit of info-lol) Tuskegee without question produces young adults with outstanding character that will bring tremendous knowledge to any community they choose to serve. This summer my son participated in an unpaid internship program with the Fund for American Studies in Washington, DC. The part that’s left me scratching my head is that many people that we encountered did not know about Tuskegee University. How can we change that?

    This is the kind of family that Pope Francis was talking about when he said the beauty of family life. I met Mrs. Johnson at the Women ‘s meeting last week and she is so down to earth.
