Sounds of Dyn-O-Mite invite Alcorn alumni and friends to Gym Jam Pep Rally

The Alcorn State University Sounds of Dyn-o-Mite and the Department of Athletics invite alumni, friends, students, employees and community members to the Gym Jam Pep Rally on August 25. The official fundraiser for the band will be held, beginning at 1:00 p.m., in the Davey L. Whitney HPER Complex on the Lorman campus.

“This pep rally is a great way to kick off our annual fundraising campaign for the band and give much needed momentum to our athletes,” said Dr. Renardo Murray, director of Athletic Bands and assistant professor of music. “We want our alumni, friends and community members to be the first ones to see the band program, meet with athletes and coaches, and cheer and energize the students for the new season.”

The program will include entertainment by the marching band, the fabulous Golden Girls, and the dynamic cheerleaders, staff introductions by Dr. Murray and presentations by athletics coaches. Alcorn administrators will also be on hand. Special guest D.J. Unpredictable of the 97.7FM-WRBJ Rickey Smiley Morning Show will also be there.

“It is shaping up to be a big event!” exclaimed Dr. Murray. “Alumni band members are coming as well as alumni Golden Girls, cheerleaders, and athletes. We also invited community leaders and schools in Southwest Mississippi. We are hoping to turn this program into an annual event.”

So, put on your purple and gold, come out and have a great time on campus while supporting Alcorn’s band and athletic programs!
