An entire ballroom of guests, colleagues, family and friends laughed and teared up at jokes, and it was all at the expense of President George C. Wright.

From pushing his younger brother out of his comfort zone in the game of baseball to telling borderline corny jokes, it was all in good fun and meant to honor Wright during the Comedy Roast and Toast. The event was the capstone of a slate of events commemorating Wright’s decade as president of PVAMU.

Since August 15th, there have been a number of events celebrating Wright. Take a look at a few of the memorable moments of the events celebrating Wright’s tenure.
