Founder's Day at SPC


St. Philip’s College will host San Antonio’s Eastside Tricentennial Celebration and Keynote Presentation featuring Dr. Ruth Simmons in a free event May 3 at 5:30 p.m. in the 600-seat Watson Fine Arts Center at 1801 Martin Luther King Drive in the City's Denver Heights neighborhood (building marked as "1" on the interactive map Guests should RSVP by email to: Marsha Hall, before 5 p.m. on May 2 and include the names of persons in their party.

With considerable promotion from such diverse sources as the City of San Antonio, San Antonio Magazine and San Antonio’s Tricentennial Commission Partner Events Calendar, the May 3 event features 22 fine artists, two historic interpretive programs, three musical groups and a distinguished corporate leader of a college within the Texas A&M system, all on the 120-year-old campus of the nation's only Historically Black College and Universities member institution with Hispanic Serving Institution status.

Guests can expect a performance by the San Antonio Symphony as they arrive to greeting-and-seating from the Ushers from the 152-year-old St. Paul United Methodist Church (the oldest African American church in San Antonio and Bexar County), and Bexar County Buffalo Soldiers to post the colors in a flourish of Military City USA patriotism for the Tricentennial event. The St. Philip’s College Choir performs and the Tricentennial occasion's host, St. Philip's College President Dr. Adena Williams Loston, introduces the actress Antoinette Winstead in her one-woman portrayal of St. Philip's College President Emeritus Artemisia Bowden--noted as one of the first Black women presidents of an institution of higher education, all setting the stage for the address by keynote speaker Dr. Ruth Simmons.

Dr. Simmons, a Houstonian and graduate of Houston’s Phillis Wheatley High School, is past president of both Smith College and Brown University. She has received numerous honorary degrees and honors and this spring, she was named chairperson of the board of directors of the Holdsworth Foundation that was created and funded by Charles Butt, Chairman and CEO of the HEB Corporation. The foundation is named for Butt’s mother, Mary Elizabeth Holdsworth Butt, and focuses on education and leadership. Meanwhile, Dr. Simmons is serving as president of Prairie View A&M University.

A single drummer from the Sam Houston High School Drumline unit emerges inside the theater and leads guests outside where several drum line musicians lead the audience through the 120-year-old campus to a meet-the-speaker reception in the Bowden Alumni Center of the college's G. J. Sutton Learning Center building at 1801 Martin Luther King Drive in the City's Denver Heights neighborhood (building marked as "10" on the interactive map

The post-speech reception area for Dr. Simmons is the exhibition space for I, Too, Sing San Antonio, an art exhibition curated by Dr. Scott Sherer and featuring 22 San Antonio African American Artists. The exhibition opened April 18. All are welcome to preview the art element of the May 3 event by arranging a tour through the college Exhibition Tour Scheduling number, 210-486-2900.
