Local business and government leaders are looking forward to celebrating Tuskegee University’s importance to the community by declaring Wednesday, April 17 as “Tuskegee University Day.”

Karin Hopkins, executive director of the Tuskegee Area Chamber of Commerce hopes the effort will help “demonstrate community support of the Tuskegee University family of students, faculty, staff and administrators by engaging the local chamber of commerce, chamber member businesses, city and county officials, and other area stakeholders.”
