Argo supports UAB athletics

By Gary Lloyd

ARGO — The Argo City Council last week approved a resolution in support of UAB athletics.

The resolution states that Argo city officials “believe in the values and community which athletics, the marching band, spirit and cheering squads provide to the college environment and experience.”UAB_logo_only-3425

The resolution states that the city council urges the University of Alabama System Board of Trustees and UAB President Ray Watts to re-establish the UAB football, bowling and rifle programs.

Trussville, Clay and Pinson city councils have approved similar resolutions.

The UAB football, bowling and rifle programs were shut down in December due to reported financial reasons.
