NCAA Releases APR Report, No A&T Teams In Penalty

Courtesy: NC A&T Sports Information
Release: 05/14/2014

GREENSBORO – For the first time since the inception of the NCAA Academic Performance Program, no North Carolina A&T sports programs will be subject to academic penalty next year.

At historically black universities, the multi-year APR is 953, up 23 in the last three years. A 30-point increase in eligibility over those three years bolstered that rate as well. All A&T sports stayed out of penalty if they had a four-year APR of 910 or above or two most recent years APR of 940.

A&T’s vast improvement is highlighted by football, which had a single-year score of 948 and a multiyear score of 905. The bowling team received NCAA recognition last week for having one of the top APR multiyear scores in the nation among bowling programs. Women’s cross country and softball were also above 930.

“We are encouraged by our improvements but not satisfied,” said Earl Hilton III, director of athletics at A&T. “We will not rest on our laurels because we want to continue to progress and celebrate in the winner’s circle and at graduation each year.”

General Discussion Forum / JCSU to close its school of education

JCSU to close its school of education
By Glenn Burkins – May 7, 2014

Full Article:

Johnson C. Smith University will close its Department of Education after the 2015-2016 academic year because of declining enrollment.

The decision was made following a “comprehensive review of all academic and selected non-academic programs” in 2011-2013, the University said in a statement released this week to reporters.

“The findings indicated clearly that the department was no longer financially viable,” the statement read.

Only eight students graduated this year with a degree in education, according to the university. The school had 40 education majors as recently as 2011-2012.

Students currently enrolled in the department will be allowed to complete their degrees.

The closing marks a symbolic shift in the educational landscape for historically black colleges and universities, which once churned out a steady stream of teachers. JCSU said that while the department “was consistent with the historical mission” of the university, “contemporary realities had begun to erode the strength and viability of the department.”

In an interview with WBTV, JCSU Chief Operating Officer Elfred Anthony Pinkard says the decision was painful but was the responsible thing to do. He said fewer students are interested in teaching because of low teacher pay.

"Members of the minority groups, like every other citizen want to be able to pursue livelihood that gives them the kind of compensation they can make a way for themselves and their family," he told the television station.

Pinkard also expressed concern that the closure would mean fewer minority teachers.

NCAA Recognizes A&T Bowling

GREENSBORO – The North Carolina A&T bowling team not only had an historic season on the lanes but also in the classroom. The Aggies bowling program received public recognition from the NCAA for ranking among the top 10 percent of all Division I bowling programs based on its Academic Progress Rate.

The honor takes into account academic progress, as well as graduation and retention rates over a four-year period between the 2009-10 and 2012-13 academic years. The Aggies were among four other programs highlighted for demonstrating a commitment to academic progress and retention of student-athletes by achieving the top APRs within women’s bowling.

Joining A&T in public recognition was Arkansas State, Louisiana Tech, Tulane and Vanderbilt. The Aggies had a perfect multiyear score of 1000.

On the Sidelines and In The Stands / 2014 Honda BOTB: The Aftermath
« on: January 26, 2014, 03:34:23 PM »

First off to great job to all eight bands selected to perform at the 2014 Honda Battle of The Bands, HBCU bands are fortunate to have the opportunity to come together and shine on a stage such as this.

This years' Battle brought some new changes, and for the first time in the History of The Honda Battle of the Bands, the (official) award for Fan Favorite was presented to THE BLUE & GOLD MARCHING MACHINE of NORTH CAROLINA A&T STATE UNIVERSITY!

With the rundown out of the way, the clips are posted below; Share your thoughts on this years Honda BOTB. Who Brought it? Who Should Have Stayed Home? Tell us how you really feel...

GREENSBORO — The biggest Christmas surprise for Raeshaun Emerson wasn’t what Santa left under his tree. It was who came knocking at his door. “Who is it?” the 6-year-old asked. “The drummer boy.” And in walked an N.C. A&T drummer in full uniform, beating a snare drum.

The usually talkative Raeshaun stood speechless and open-mouthed. He kept saying, “Wow!” The drummer, Troy Hayden of Winston-Salem, is a student assistant for A&T’s Cold Steel drum line. That morning, he also showed Raeshaun how to hold drumsticks and gave the boy a pair that light up.

Raeshaun, who already had strapped on a drum he got for Christmas last year, played alongside Hayden. It was the ideal surprise for a boy who has been watching A&T’s drummers since he was 2.

Raeshaun often looks up the band online and watches videos of Cold Steel on YouTube, said Raesha Emerson, his mother.

But each time Emerson asked her son what he wanted for Christmas, he said he’d be happy with anything she got him or with nothing at all. He finally told her, “I just want one of A&T’s drummers to come and teach me.” The rest just came together. Emerson, a dental assistant, was chatting with a friend about her son’s Christmas wish lists, and that friend knew an A&T drummer. That led Emerson to Hayden. Hayden, 23, drove about 20 minutes from Winston-Salem to surprise Raeshaun.

“It’s such a blessing, though, to be able to do that,” said Hayden, an industrial systems engineering major.

For Hayden, making a child’s Christmas wish come true shows Cold Steel’s greater purpose. “At the end of the day, it’s all about giving back,” Hayden said, “and I’m glad I was able to do it.”

Emerson recorded the surprise for her father, who lives in Boston. The video was too big to email, so she posted it to YouTube.

Now, the video has been watched thousands of times. At least a hundred of those views may have been Raeshaun, his mother said.
