President Carter's Send Off at the MSA Cultural Cook Out
By: Alycia LaLuz 5/14/21
On Tuesday, May 11, Shippensburg University’s Multicultural Student Affairs Organization (MSA) hosted a Cultural Cookout on the front lawn of Gilbert Hall.
Dishes like soul food, Asian cuisine and food from Hispanic culture were all represented. With the good food came a sendoff as students and faculty gathered to say goodbye to the university’s outgoing president Laurie Carter.
Performances from student groups like the Harmonic Voices of Truth gospel choir and students giving speeches were a part of the bittersweet event.
As a representative of MSA, Lance Hines-Butts presented President Carter with a gift from the organization as they had live Soca performers from New York that welcomed Carter to the university perform in her honor one last time.
The festivities were brought to a close as MSA’s director Ms. Diane Jefferson and President Carter donned the graduating seniors with Kenta; a tradition for members of the MSA community.
