Several members of the UAPB Golden Lions Football Team served as cafeteria volunteers in the month of October. These young men understand the importance of setting a great example for the next generation, and were enthusiastic for the opportunity to serve and assist students and cafeteria staff. To become a leader you must also know how to serve and we believe that these young men are well on their way to becoming great leaders on and off the field. Go Lions!!!
