The Car Clubs of North Alabama also presented Dr. Wims with a check for $1,325 for AAMU Athletics.
It was a busy day on “The Hill,” as the AAMU Football Team took the field at Louis Crews Stadium at 10 a.m. for the Maroon and White Game.
Dr. Wims also threw out the first pitch at the AAMU Women’s Softball doubleheader against FAMU. The first game was at noon with the second at 2 p.m.
