Delta State President William N. LaForge points as the Fighting Okra makes a grand entrance.
Delta State President William N. LaForge and the Fighting Okra are all “smiles” as the flash mob concludes.
Delta State President William N. LaForge, on the second day of his presidency, was welcomed by the student body with an impromptu flash mob during an open discussion forum on Tuesday, April 16, in the H. L. Nowell Union.
A standing-room-only crowd of students packed the second floor lobby to participate in the forum with the new president. LaForge addressed a number of questions before one student stood and asked how he felt about the Fighting Okra. As he began to answer, a student deejay blasted “Let’s Get It Started” by the Black Eyed Peas, and the Fighting Okra mascot rappelled from the roof of the Union into the second-floor lobby where the discussion was being held. Cheerleaders in the crowd broke out into dance.
