A&T’s perfect season recognized on US House Floor

Walker

North Carolina A&T’s perfect season has not gone unnoticed by its state representative.

The celebration of North Carolina A&T’s perfect season has gone from the floor of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium to the floor of the United States House of Representatives.

US Representative Mark Walker recognized A&T’s football team for its 12-0 season, which resulted in a win in the Celebration Bowl and helped it bring home the HBCU national title.

“North Carolina A&T is leading the way in showing the great value and the importance of our nation’s HBCUs,” Walker said on the floor. “I am proud to represent this school of academic and athletic excellence. Leaving only one question remaining, Mr. Speaker.

CAN I GET A AG-GIE PRIDE?”

A Conservative Face For HBCU Advocacy?

Walker represents the North Carolina’s sixth district, which includes North Carolina A&T. This isn’t the first time the conservative Republican has made headlines in 2017 for his outreach to HBCUs, specifically A&T. He was one of the key figures behind getting President Donald Trump to meet with HBCU chancellors and presidents last winter.

He’s also worked across the aisle with Rep. Alma Adams, a North Carolina A&T alumna, establishing an HBCU Bipartisan Internship Program.

Walker’s wife, Kelly, is an alumnus of Winston-Salem State University.
