C.V. Troup Descendant to Deliver 76th Founders’ Day Address

This year, as Fort Valley State University embarks on a transformative journey under the leadership of Dr. Paul Jones, students, faculty, staff, alumni and supporters acknowledge the legacy of eighteen men who envisioned an institution of excellence for students in middle Georgia. On Thursday, November 3, FVSU will celebrate its 76th annual Founders’ Day Convocation at 10:30 a.m. in the Cleveland W. Pettigrew Farm and Community Life Center. Classes are suspended from 9:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., to give faculty, staff and students an opportunity to attend this significant day in history.

The distinguished speaker is Dr. Elliot V. Troup, son of Cornelius V. Troup, second president of Fort Valley State College (1945-1966).
