Albany State celebrates Founders Day

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany State University students, faculty and alumni came together to celebrate Founder's Day.

Folks gathered Friday to commemorate 112 years.

This year's theme is "One Past. One Future. One ASU."

Alumnus Dr. Darryl Chapman was the keynote speaker and says he's proud of the institution's growth and hope it continues.

"Since I graduated here all these new buildings, things are beautiful, the campus is great, the morale is great," said ASU Alumn Dr. Darryl Chapman. "And we're just praying, and I'm praying that we continue to grow it even further."

Chapman, an Albany native, graduated from ASU in 19-80 and has his own family dentistry practice.

Several other city leaders also spoke during the program.
