The annual breakfast meeting will be held at 8 a.m. Friday, Oct. 4, with the AM&N/University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff Human Sciences Alumni Association.


Held during the UAPB Homecoming week, the event will be held in room 233 of the Adair-Greenhouse Human Sciences Hall at UAPB, according to a news release.


“Homecoming is coming early this fall season, and we hope alumni, colleagues and friends of the Department of Human Sciences will join us for the annual breakfast,” said Janette Wheat, Ph.D., vice president of the association. “This is a wonderful opportunity to join in fellowship and celebrate the department and the opportunities it provides.”


There is no charge to attend the breakfast, but attendees are encouraged to make a donation to the Human Sciences Alumni Association. Contributions can be mailed to the organization or paid at the event, according to the release.


“Donations will provide much-needed financial assistance to our deserving students who are currently enrolled in the program and will help fund the department’s bi-annual graduation luncheon,” Wheat said.


UAPB Homecoming 2019 is scheduled for Sept. 29 to Oct. 5.


Attendees are asked to register for the breakfast by Wednesday, Sept. 18, so the event organizers can have an accurate headcount.


To register for the breakfast, participants should make out checks or money orders payable to AM&N-UAPB Human Sciences Alumni Association. Payments should be mailed to Dr. Janette Wheat, Department of Human Sciences, UAPB, 1200 N. University, Mail Slot 4971, Pine Bluff, AR 71601, or to Tamera Ford at the same address.
