Fairfield hosts MLK Convocation

Herman Boone, an inspiring football coach, delivered the University’s 2012 Convocation to a nearly standing room only crowd at the Quick Center. Largely attended by students, both from the University and area schools, the event featured Boone discussing how he brought African American and white players together to form one successful football team in 1971. News 12 interviewed students who said they were moved by Boone’s story, the focus of the Disney film, “Remember the Titans.”
