Chapter Spotlight: Charlotte Chapter of Morehouse Alumni Association


The Charlotte chapter’s mission is to provide a networking and developmental resource for local alumni, thus extending the Morehouse experience beyond the college years.  In addition, we seek to use chapter resources to support a variety of community needs.


The Charlotte chapter was founded in the late mid 1970’s by a dedicated core led by Dr. Robert Vaughn and Dr. Wesley Clement.  Since it’s inception, the chapter has had many successes including:

  • Recipients of the 2003 Chapter of the Year Award

  • Hosting several community awards banquets, the last of which featured former Surgeon General, Dr. David Satcher

  • Providing thousands of dollars in college scholarships

  • Supporting the STARS mentoring academy founded and managed by Brother Elijah Watson

  • Hosting concerts featuring the renown Morehouse College Glee Club

  • Supporting the King holiday celebration in ways including a short film festival showcasing the work of Black, male filmakers

  • Facilitating a number of Morehouse student recruiting activities including the development of a recruiting video (click to view recruiting video)

The Charlotte chapter is lead and managed by a group of committed alumni.  Please find out more about our leadership below.
