Booster Club Sponsored Bus Trip To Greensboro For Football Season Opener

The Booster Club Sponsored a bus trip to Greensboro, NC on Saturday September 5 to watch and support our beloved Bears football team.

The trip was organized by Cornell Royster,  Vice-President and Fundraising Committee Chair. Gifts and games for entertainment during the ride were provided by Joyce M. Robinson, our Booster Club President.

The ride was lively, fun and entertaining as the group readied itself for the long awaited faceoff between our Shaw University Bears and the NC A&T Aggies, two universities grounded in a rich African-American heritage.

Our Bears team struggled to match Aggie playmakers as they suffered a 61-7 setback to the Aggies. This was the first meeting between the two teams since 1963 before this game and was the season opener for both teams.

The Bears will face Wingate next Saturday, September 12  for our home opener at Durham County Memorial Stadium at 6 p.m.
