VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta State University President Dr. Bill McKinney addressed the campus at the school's annual convocation Monday.

In his second convocation speech to the VSU community, Dr. McKinney asked for the audience to recommit themselves to university traditions that bind and strengthen the community.

He acknowledged the 50 year celebration mark for integration at VSU. And he announced this year's homecoming theme - community, with an emphasis on 'unity.'

"I hope, it is my sincere wish for all of us that we never lose sight of that excitement, that we never lose that energy and anticipation for the first day of school," said Dr. McKinney.

And the first day of school starts August 12th.
