Preserving the Legacy, Cherishing the Memories
Hello Everyone, I bring you greetings as the new President of the Storer College National Alumni Association (SCNAA)! It is with great humility and gratitude that I accept this appointment. I look forward to serving the organization to the best of my ability. According to historical documents, the Storer College Alumni Association was formed in 1877 by a small group consisting of faculty members and students. Over the years, several more chapters were established in the DMV, Pennsylvania and Ohio. These dedicated men and women took a great leap of faith to bring their vision to fruition. Unfortunately, the college closed its doors in 1955, after just 88 years of service. However, because of our predecessors’ brave efforts back then and your support today, Storer College will live on as a source of pride and inspiration for future generations.
Friends, we have a few challenges facing us as we begin this next chapter. Each of us has the unique responsibility to serve as an ambassador for the SCNAA. We must embrace our calling and use our God-given talents to help preserve the legacy of Storer College. Each of us has been blessed with skills and talents that will be invaluable as we move forward. We will tap into those resources and recruit more members. We also will strengthen our strategic relationships with organizations that share our goals. In addition, we will use today’s technology to promote our vision and be more visible in our communities. Finally, support the Storer College National Endowment Fund, which was established to provide scholarship opportunities for deserving high school seniors. If we all work together on these goals and stay the course, I have no doubt that we can fulfill our purpose. Take care and be blessed!
