Keith McLaurin, a local Raleigh artist and a son of Saint Augustine’s University, recently presented a portrait on canvas to Interim President Everett Ward. McLaurin stated he was very motivated to do the portrait because Interim President Ward is a new beginning for Saint Augustine’s University.
“I commend Mr. McLaurin for giving back to the university by sharing his talents,” said Interim President Ward.
McLaurin, who attended Saint Augustine’s University, said, “It was a humbling experience to meet Interim President Ward. It was a once in a lifetime experience. It was wonderful to meet and speak with him.”
McLaurin has done portraits of numerous celebrities such as Tyler Perry, Katt Williams, Fantasia, Mary J. Blige, Ice Cube to name a few.
