From Our NAA President’s Desk
“Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect out meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”
Hebrews 10:24-25 NLT
Prosperity abounds as we enter 2020. We are blessed as we enter the New Year. To be successful as an organization, we must be in unity to a common objective. The common objective, in this case, is the survival of Morris Brown College. The first step in the survival process is achieving accreditation. As an organization we must be laser focused on supporting the college in this effort.
The real test, as an Alumni group, is can we work together to achieve this objective? The college needs us to be focused, committed, and dedicated to this task. As president, I am committed to lead this effort. I ask that you be ready to do the same. Let’s start this year dedicated to this task. Please join in and do your best to support our beloved Alma Mater.
