Things are shaking at Arkansas State University and the vibe is a great one. I had the chance to attend a media conference last week where Terry Mohajir was announced as the new Athletic Director of ASU. When Mohajir spoke to the crowd, I have to say it was a special experience. It was refreshing to hear Mohajir speak from the heart. He was passionate and emotional about his return to ASU, the people who helped get him here and his family. As many of you know, Mohajir graduated from ASU in 1993 and was a football player. While time will tell what Mohajir can accomplish for ASU, he makes an incredible first impression. As one of the members of the ASU Touchdown Club put it, the Gus Bus just got strapped to a 747. ASU Chancellor Dr. Tim Hudson was instrumental in bringing Mohajir back to ASU. Congratulations to Dr. Hudson and the rest of the search committee on the selection of Terry Mohajir as the new Athletic Director. Now, what do we need to do? Get on and stay on the Gus Bus and get ready for a rocking ride on that 747. Terry Mohajir's return to our community will make this A Better Region 8.
