On June 6, 2020, twenty members of the chapter, along with ten other GTAC family members, assembled and conducted a surprise graduation drive-by parade for our first chapter recruited student, Logan Harper. The subdivision in which Logan lives was suddenly taken over as the 18 vehicles, adoring our chapter car flags, honked horns throughout the subdivision as we approached Logan;s house. Each vehicle stopped in front of his house, offering congratulations and presenting him with cards, gifts, and a total of 44 balloons ( 20 orange balloons representing his high school graduation year and 24 blue balloons, representing the year he will graduate from VSU). Incidentally, each balloon had money in it prepared by our chapter’s Parliamentarian, Cicily Marsh. Member Vivian Lewis made and presented orange and blue face masks to each member, not only for protection, but to heighten our Trojan Spirit. As we passed in review, the huge Virginia State University flag could be seen hanging on the porch so proudly.
