Among other things, Armstead was nominated by the president of USD to sit on the Gender Equity Oversight Committee, is a member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, and serves as chaplain of the Tau Kappa Chapter.
The first Wednesday in February has been the traditional National Signing Day for high school seniors to sign NCAA letters of intent to play college football. Although, high school seniors who play other sports have been recognized on that day as well.
