Fort Valley State University will be the site of Dr. Odessa Harrison McNair’s memorial service Monday, Nov. 13 at 11 a.m. Dr. McNair, FVSU Class of 1954, is a legend on the campus of Fort Valley State University. Every time a special occasion–like Founders Day—takes place, students, faculty, and staff members sing the university's alma mater, written in part by McNair. Due to the anticipated attendance, travel and parking around the C. W. Pettigrew Center and on State University Drive will be impacted. All faculty, staff and students are asked to reserve parking spaces near the C. W. Pettigrew Center for family and friends of Dr. McNair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Faculty and staff are directed to park between the C.V. Troup Building and the Ag Communications Building. Student parking is available near Wildcat Commons. The FVSU shuttle bus will transport students to campus destinations.
Thank you for your cooperation as we offer our support to the community and McNair family.
