Albany State University celebrated its 114th Founder’s Day anniversary Friday, focusing on its theme of “honoring the past, celebrating the present, investing in the future.”
“ASU has a rich history and dynamic present, which we are proud to convey,” said Sue Polite-Solomon, director of university Alumni Affairs. “As we continue to grow in all areas, we are excited about the future of ASU.”
Alumnus Marvin Laster served as the keynote speaker at the Founder’s Day Convocation, a traditional element of the celebration. Laster is a 2000 honor graduate of Albany State and a 2012 honor graduate of Mercer University’s Stetson School of Economics and Business. He currently serves as the chief professional officer for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany, where he oversees the organization’s strategic planning.
During his tenure at the BGCA, Laster has held several positions, including director of diversity services, creating the organization’s inclusion initiatives specifically aimed at serving students with disabilities.
