It's our moment

I've noticed the increased push for the university to be more intertwined with the town and though that is in part due to President Rochon's involvement in community meetings and discussion, we also need to look at the way Lindsey Lunsford's campaign took both the university and the town by storm. No other campus related political campaigns have included large percentages of community members and maintained relationships.

From "Its You're Moment" where Lindsey called her peers to be the change, we see students like Omari Ho-Sang and the creation of The Institute Neighborhood Association (TINA) which looks to promote a sense of safety and wellbeing in the Greenwood area where a dense population of students and elderly live. Businesses with the purpose of linking the town and gown are being started as well; one such business is Be A Top Leader Enterprise which is a temp agency that pairs students with local businesses so that they will hit the ground running post graduation.

Lindsey has, with the help of her friends and the inspiration of local hero Sammy Younge, started an organization called Why BAM ( Younge Black Artists Movement) which fosters the artistic abilities of the members of the community and students alike. Tuskegee is making a positive change in the direction towards unity in 2012 and into the future.
