It is a pleasure to serve as your 24th President (4th Female) of the MBC National Alumni Association. Our Association was established in 1902 to assist Morris Brown College and students. The Alumni Association recognizes the accomplishment and contribution of the college alumni yearly at the Awards Luncheon. The Association has also researched and implemented a birthday information celebration for Bishop Morris Brown, ( 2nd. Consecrated Bishop). We found out that Bishop Morris Brown was an avid educator, civil rights, and religious leader. Knowing this information makes us very proud.
The Alumni Association has been following the example of Bishop Morris Brown in providing quality education for our students. We also network for our students, provide scholarships, housing, meals, educational and social activities. I want to extend my hearty appreciation to all the alumni for your unwavering support. We have had some major projects during the past three years and you were there to help. Brownites, we did an amazing job with The MBC Focus Group-Phase ONE,-the “We Are Morris Brown College “––“Raise the Roof Initiative,” “The Gofundme,” and “MBC Car Give-A-way.” As we now move into the Morris Brown College, Twenty-Twenty Capital Campaign, we look forward to your continued support in the years to come. Thank you to the Affinity Groups for working with the Alumni Association, too. Our motto is, “To God and Truth” and, as our Alma Mater affirms: Morris Brown is a “A Haven for Hungry Souls!”
