Hey, guys... you might want to take this page down now. Dr. Pride has resigned, and this content is therefore outdated. Additional comments will begin to reflect poorly on your university.

Being the first, means a lot to a lot of people. I want to Congratulate you on being the First, Female President that WVSU has ever had. I was born and raised in this community (Dunbar/Institute area), and I can truly say about time. I believe that women are natural nurturers and fixers. I believe that you will fit in with our close-knit community, and I wish you the best of luck.

“As you take the helm of West Virginia State University keep these words of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in mind: “A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.” I look forward to learning from you, working with you as well as partnering with you to enrich higher education at West Virginia State University..

Reverend Dr. Joseph Jenkins, Jr. Class of 1973
