W, 56-2

DR. LARRY E. RIVERS, PRESIDENT Four years ago, Dr. Larry E. Rivers returned to his alma mater as the eighth president of Fort Valley State University (FVSU) in the Middle Georgia community of Fort Valley. It was a place known more for its peaches and pecans than its historically black state university. The former Florida A & M University administrator and history professor tackled several challenges. Under the leadership of Dr. Rivers, FVSU is experiencing phenomenal growth. When fall classes began this year, more than 4,000 students enrolled. To accommodate the expanding student body, several construction projects have been completed including Phase III of the Wildcat Commons student housing village; a science classroom and laboratory building; a new football stadium; and an adjacent student amenities building that houses retail stores, a food court and more! FVSU now offers new graduate and undergraduate academic programs. Dr. Rivers credits energized leadership and a major reorganization for the institution’s growth. Born in the Philadelphia suburb of Sharon Hill, Dr. Rivers graduated from Fort Valley State College (now University) with a Bachelor of Science degree in social science education before pursuing a master’s degree in history at Villanova University. Carnegie-Mellon University awarded him a doctor of arts degree in history and curriculum development in 1977, and Goldsmith’s College of the University of London added a doctor of philosophy in history degree in 2002. For more than twenty years, Dr. Rivers taught history at Florida A & M University, ultimately receiving the rank of “distinguished university professor,” one of only two on campus. Meanwhile he held a series of administrative appointments leading to his selection in 2002 as dean of the FAMU College of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Rivers’ Slavery in Florida, Territorial Days to Emancipation, published in 2000, garnered three national awards. He subsequently co-authored two additional volumes – Laborers in the Vineyard of the Lord: The Beginnings of the AME Church in Florida and For a Great and Grand Purpose: The Beginnings of the AMEZ Church in Florida – that have received scholarly acclaim. His teaching, research, publications, and community service have earned numerous citations for excellence. Ebony magazine featured Dr. Rivers as one of America’s future black leaders. Georgia Trend magazine named the president one of the “100 Most Influential Georgians” in 2008. He is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., the Fort Valley State University Alumni Association, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Sigma Pi Phi (The Grand Boulé) Fraternity, the Urban League and Prince Hall Masonic Lodge. The father of sons Linje Eugene and Larry O., Rivers is married to the former Betty Jean Hubbard, a native of Dry Branch, Georgia.


DR. pERCY L. “CHICO” CALDWELL, ATHLETIC DIRECTOR Prior to his arrival at Fort Valley State University, Dr. Caldwell served as consultant to the president and interim director of athletics at Miles College. In that capacity, his responsibilities included crafting a compliance system in response to recent NCAA sanctions; drafting and implementing a compliance manual and student handbook; and developing a business improvement plan for the college. Earlier in his career, as an administrator and coach at Miles, Caldwell led the basketball team to four consecutive conference championships, advancing to the NCAA Division III finals once. Prior to employment at Miles College, he spent eight years as the director of athletics at Winston-Salem State University. While there, he helped the Rams transition from the NCAA Division II level to NCAA Division I competition (Football Championship Subdivision in football) through a five-year reclassification program. Under Dr. Caldwell’s leadership and guidance, WSSU completed construction of a $5.1 million athletic field house, a $1.3 million track and field complex, and a tennis facility. Prior to his departure, construction began on a state-of-the-art softball complex, as well as a first-class football practice field. At Iowa Valley Community College District, Caldwell was the director of planning and development; and his 35-year background in collegiate athletics includes service as the athletic director and head basketball coach at West Virginia State College, head basketball coach at South Carolina State University and assistant basketball coach and physical education instructor at Livingston University. For steady leadership, a vision and commitment to excellence, the administrator was awarded West Virginia Conference Coach of the Year in 1990 and Athletic Director of the Year in 1989. He built program funding from $200,000 in 1987 to $500,000 in 1988 and increased it to more than $1.5 million while at WVSC. Caldwell also was named Coach of the Year in 1978 by the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference; Miles College Teacher of the Year in 1979 and its Most Outstanding Administrator in 1977. The Miles College graduate earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology/psychology, a master’s in health, physical education and recreation at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, and a Ph.D. in higher education administration at Iowa State University.

Wildcats Steam Roll Tigers, 56-2

In Saturday’s match up with the Tigers of Stillman College, the Wildcats of Fort Valley State University (FVSU) introduced a new quarterback to the 6,000 plus fans who attended the conference contest. After Eugene Smith led a 56 point performance by the Wildcats, most agreed that the introduction went extremely well. With the Wildcats offense on its way to 362 total yards, Smith’s debut included an eight of 14 passing performance which accounted for 230 yards of the total. He also tossed four touchdown passes. Wide receivers Ricardo Lockette and Eric McCree caught three touchdown passes. Lockette scored on a 50 yard strike from Smith while McCree scored twice on passes of 70 and 30 yards. Smith opened the game’s scoring with a 17 yard touchdown pass to running back Tony Reid. On a day that featured new faces in the Wildcat line up, Smith wasn’t the only standout. Running back Billy Mallard took his first snaps as a Wildcat on Saturday. On nine carries, Mallard finished with 54 yards. He averaged six yards per carry and had a five yard touchdown run. Defensively, the Wildcats held the Tigers to just 95 yards in total offense. Newcomer Ja’Bois Glen led FVSU in tackles with a game-high eight. The freshman had two tackles for losses totaling 11 yards; one quarterback sack of 10 yards; and one fumble recovery. Defensive back Dominique Patterson continued to shine as a member of the Wildcat secondary. Last week’s Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) Co-Defensive Player of the Week, Patterson got another interception in Saturday’s game and returned it 59 yards for a touchdown. It was his third interception returned for a touchdown this season. Senior linebacker Denzell Carter contributed to the FVSU scoring tally when he returned a fumble 30 yards for a touchdown. The 56-2 win now takes the Wildcats overall record to 3-1. They are 2-1 in SIAC play.
