    Dr. Wubah:
    Congratulations from one of the first African American students to attend Millersville University amidst the turbulent late nineteen sixties. Your appointment outstrips my imagination since you are the second president of African descent; a mere fifty years after I walked that campus as one of five African American basketball playing students in September 1968.
