President Ammons Hypes The Crowd!

Posted by thelense on Monday, September 29, 2008

Note: This was supposed to be posted yesterday but my blog tricked me and saved it as a draft instead of publishing it. It was only today I realized that the post was not appearing on the site. But alas here it is!

Florida A&M University 10th, and in my opinion most amazing president spoke today at the Obama Rally. The man is truly a great leader and I could see no better person being at the helm of FAMU. He of course spoke highly of the school and let the crowd know and Mrs. Obama that she was in Rattler Country. The day really just kept getting better and better. President Ammons was a great host!

Get like Ammons!

Dr. Jill Biden Speaks To FAMU!

Posted by thelense on Sunday, September 28, 2008

The wife of vice presidential running mate Joe Biden spoke to Florida A&M University today. Dr. Jill Biden who many may not know about is actually a highly accomplished woman. She holds a doctorate degree and currently is a professor at a community college. She is a really sophisticated woman. During her speech she spoke very highly of Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama. Saying that Obama/Biden are the right team to get Washington back on track! She also spoke of the need for affordable education for all Americans. She said that her students were her greatest role models and that seeing them struggle to balance school, families, and jobs makes her want CHANGE in this election! Watch her speech below!

It was really cool of Mrs. Biden to shoutout the Rattler football team! And yes as she predicted they DID WIN!!!

Just when I thougth the day couldn’t get any better, student body vice president Mellori Lumpkin came out to introduce Jill Biden. Now many of you may know that I am a huge fan of all things Mellori related I think she is a great woman and famuan. Well as usual she did not disappoint during her speech. She spoke powerfully and intelligently about the times we are facing and the need for a change. A CHANGE IS COMING she repeatedly said and its true. She also did a good job of introducing Jill BIden!

Monique Gillum Speaks!

Posted by thelense on Sunday, September 28, 2008

Monique Gillum is best known as serving as FAMU’s student body vice president, but now she can be known as one of the many people responsible for sending Barack Obama to the white house. Today she gave an empowered speech about the need to not only register yourself to vote but also bring 5 other people to the polls with you. Monique continues to do big things in the community and I can’t wait to see her running for public office! The Lens definitely supports Miss. Gillum! Great choice to speak before Michelle.

FAMU Student Gives Invocation At Obama Rally

Posted by thelense on Sunday, September 28, 2008

Florida A&M Student Chelsea Matthews delivered the Invocation for the Obama Rally held today. Personally I think she did a really good job. She came off as very articulate and well spoken when speaking. And she looked really great (when doesn’t she though). A very good start to a very great Rally!

Rickards High School Fills In For Marching 100

Posted by thelense on Sunday, September 28, 2008

The Richards High School band had to fill in for the Marching 100 toay. The high school band was given the task of warming up the crow for the arrival of Future First Lady Michelle Obama. I mus say the high school ban really showed up and showed out. I really believe their band director is a former member of the Marching 100 because the band really bought it. From SOS to Damaged to Got To Be Real to Spolight the band played a slew of hits that kept the energetic crowd on its feet!

Job well done to Rickards High for holding it down!
