A Few Basketball Life Lessons from A Blogger

My collegiate coach from FVSU retired this year.  I missed Coach Bartley’s retirement banquet  a few weekends ago because I was working.

While I was up late that night at the pharmacy, I got some text messages from my former roommate/teammate that made my night.

HBCU’s YES OR NO

YES!!!!  For my last post during Black History Month, I wanted to share a day in the Valley through photos.  Rx Fitness Lady has a prosperity portion in the theme and the foundation for much of that prosperity for me was begun at THE Fort Valley State University.  Historically Black Colleges & Universities are still vital and necessary organizations and I wanted to show my love and respect for the institution that prepared me for pharmacy school & provided so many opportunities along the way. A lot of people will try to persuade you to get your higher level education from anything but a HBCU. I’m here to tell you that it was the best decision that I ever made & I highly recommend any interested parties to go & share in what I know will be great memories and a great education.

Schoolin’ Life from Coach

I have a special tribute today for Act-Fit Friday! First, I want to thank you for hanging with me this week while I creatively weaved the theme of Rx Fitness Lady in with all these special events. I appreciate your sweet comments in honor of our Centennial and the great city of Macon, GA from earlier this week.  I’m making this week complete because my collegiate Coach Lonnie Bartley became the coach with the most wins for Lady’s basketball from an HBCU this past Saturday when the Fort Valley State women’s team defeated Stillman 85 – 71.  That was win #624!!! Woo Hoo!

CONGRATULATIONS TO COACH LONNIE BARTLEY FOR HAVING THE MOST WINS IN THE HISTORY OF HBCU WOMEN'S BASKETBALL!
