This past weekend, the Marshall community held its annual Fire Ant Festival downtown around the historic Harrison Country Courthouse.  The Fire Ant Festival with its many fun activities to participate in has been held for the past 30 years. ETBU was well presented in the annual Fire Ant Festival parade.

President Dub Oliver and First Lady Susie, served as the Grand Marshall for the parade that travels through downtown.  Dr. Oliver tweeted (@DrDub_ETBU) at the parade, “Great fun for Susie and me to be Grand Marshall of the Fire Ant Parade! #WeLoveMarshall #FireAntFestival #ETBU.”

Miss ETBU Macy Freeman, a nursing major form Midlothian, was also in the parade representing ETBU.

Don’t forget about another parade on the calendar, the 2013 Homecoming Parade will be held this Saturday (Oct. 19) at 11:00 a.m. traveling through campus on Tiger Pride.
