The Roadside Girls’ Song for the Seniors 2009

Roadside Girls

Yesterday I dropped by the second of three senior receptions and shot video of the Roadside Girls’ performance.

Unfortunately, I don’t spend enough time on campus to know who most of the group members are and would appreciate any help you can provide in identifying them in the comments. (Thanks to the commenters who helped ID everyone!)

The Roadside Girls (in the video, from left to right): Dean Louise Brown, Kari Weil, Sonia Mañjon, Susan Lourie, Gale Lackey, Dean Marina Melendez, Jan Naegele, Suzanne O’Connell, Annie Burke, Sarah Lazare.

If you want to catch the Roadside Girls’ live act, the third and final senior reception for ASTR, BIOL, CHEM, COMP, E&ES, MATH, MECO, MB&B, NS&B, PHYS & PSYC majors is Monday, May 4 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in Woodhead Lounge.

A memorial service is being held for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the Memorial Chapel on Tuesday the 27th:

The service will feature a student reflection, performances by the Roadside Girls and Ebony Singers, and a Keynote Address by Dr. Robert D. Bullard.
