Will the A-Sun teams Central Arkansas, Eastern Kentucky and Jacksonville State also play football in the Big South?

A woman who finally had a chance at age 99 to walk through the college graduation line last year has died.

Elizabeth Barker Johnson, who walked across the stage during Winston-Salem State University's 2019 graduation ceremony, died Sunday in Catawba County at the age of 100.

"She is one of the most incredible people I have met during my time on the planet," Elwood Robinson, the chancellor of WSSU, said in a Facebook post. "Thank you for your service and your life! I will miss you! I am a better person because of meeting you!"

Johnson missed her graduation ceremony in 1949 because she had started a new teaching job after her college classes ended. When she finally had the chance to take part in a graduation ceremony, she received thunderous applause from those attending, and millions learned about her special day on national television.

For more than 70 years, Robinson said later, missing her 1949 graduation ceremony was one of Johnson's biggest regrets.

"We discovered her a couple years ago, and her story is remarkable," Robinson said on Sunday, noting Johnson's service with the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion in World War II.

According to the U.S. Army Center of Military History, the 6888th was the only Black women's unit to serve overseas during the war.

Sent to a warehouse in Birmingham, England, the unit undertook the gargantuan task of sorting millions of pieces of mail that had arrived for U.S. military personnel, some of it badly addressed ("Junior, U.S. Army") or maybe sent to one of 7,500 people named Robert Smith.

In 2018, Robinson said, Johnson was among five women from the battalion who went to Fort Leavenworth in Kansas to see the dedication of a monument honoring their unit.

Did they go to the playoffs?

Was the Big South created by LU?  If it was, why are HBCU's joining it?

You can not compete with the best unless you have money like the best.  Inspirational dream or vision means nothing without big money.

The criticisms of the MEAC are so subjective it's sickening. The one criticism that is based on data is travel cost. The rest are juvenile. What is everyone complaining about?



I have been trying to figure this out for weeks.  The main issue I saw was travel.  Now that our Fl teams are leaving, that may solve some of the problems.  However, two schools in NC and Va are already gone before the problem will be solved.  Oh if we can have them back.  :shrug: 

I really think that travel has very little to do with what is happening in the MEAC. Based on the past, decisions are made slowly by our schools. 
I believe that A&T knew that FL A&M was leaving the MEAC, when it announced they were joining the bs.

Things are going to fast

And when either Hampton and A&T go 2-0 against the MEAC but fail to win the Big South; they're going to receive the Celebration Bowl bid. 

It can happen as soon as 2021. Does it make sense for multiple MEAC teams to play them, after that happens?

This is not a problem, no one in the MEAC will play A&T or Hampton

Cut off your nose to spite your face? Eagles you all need to stop it because you all will soon be joining us in the BSC.   

If the Eagles join the big south, then they should move on and not try to still the assets that belongs to the MEAC.  The CB belongs to the MEAC
They should not use the MEAC teams to make money.  If they can not make money playing bs teams, then they should join another conf.
The Eagles and no one else has a right to take anything from the other HBCU's in the MEAC once they leave

A&T and Central should not stop playing, but no more than 1 MEAC school should play A&T and Hampton each year.

If A&T and Hampton are allowed to play in the Celebration Bowl, then the top teams in the CIAA and SIAC should also be allowed to play in The Celebration Bowl.  At least they are HBCU's, that did not sell out.
