Cousins continue family tradition with UAPB commencement

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (UAPB) - For cousins, Cornovious Branch Jr. (CJ) and Tara A. Branch, completing a college education at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff is a celebration of a deeply rooted family tradition.

During Spring Commencement on May 9, 2015, these millennials will follow in the footsteps of over 90 relatives who have graduated from the university. The Branch family tradition at UAPB is built upon a foundation of Faith, Family and Education. It began in the early 1920s when Annie Branch Gentry completed her studies at Branch Normal Agricultural Mechanical and Normal College, (currently known as the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff). The educational tradition has continued for decades producing a lineage of doctors, lawyers, educators, engineers, pastors, entrepreneurs, entertainers and more.
