By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email ALBANY, GA (WALB) – One of the highlights for thousands in town this weekend and locals is the ASU Homecoming Parade.
The parade didn't disappoint it had more music, dance, and floats.
"This is my first Homecoming in all of these years," said Clano Stephens.
Stephens graduated with the class of 1931.
This is his first homecoming, he was the grand marshal.
"I'm enjoying this one immensely it's been really good," said Stephens.
Now 98-years-old he is back to help the university celebrate its 107 year history.
"Oh everything has changed since then, but we had a good time, and where the president's office is now we belt that when I was here," said Stephens.
He graduated from what was Georgia Normal and Agricultural College 85-years ago.
Now a university with rich history, leaders hope to keep the legacy going.
"The faculty, staff, alums, they keep this things going, I couldn't be happier," said Dr. Everett Freeman, Albany State University President.
Bands from Albany, Terrell County, and one as far as Augusta came to help ASU celebrate more than a century of educating students.
As the school honors the past and celebrate the present, they look to the future and another 107 years in Albany.
