JACKSON, Tenn.-Lane College held a social event on campus Friday that brought faculty, staff and students together for a special celebration.

The event gave those attending the chance to "meet and greet" Lane College's newly named president, Dr. Logan C. Hampton. And what better way to get acquainted with the school's new president than with an old fashioned ice cream social.

Dr. Hampton told WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News he is grateful to have the opportunity to work with both students and faculty members of Lane College.

"Excited about meeting this new student body and getting to work with this faculty and staff and this administrative team to change lives, to elevate those students and help them to understand the power of their potential," said Dr. Hampton.

There was also another reason for Friday's celebration...it was Dr. Hampton's birthday.
