Sending the Next Generation of Morehouse Students

In August, we will be sending students from Los Angeles to Morehouse, our beloved Alma Mater.  Some of these students have significant financial need. Others have remarkable talent and leadership skills.  Many have both.  Our responsibility is to support the students from this area.

We know that if we send good students to Morehouse, the school will do something that no other place in the world can do for them.  As President of GLAMAA, I ask that you invest in these young men.   We need your time, your effort and your financial support.  In return, we offer chances to make a difference in the lives of students.

We need to raise $6,000 by July of 2013.  This will allow us to distribute scholarships to some of these deserving students.  The need is great.

Please do what you can to help us reach this goal.

If you did not pay your yearly dues, if you did not run in the 5K or donate or raise money, if you did not support this chapter in the last year, you can still do your part for 2013. 

 June 15, 2013- Morehouse hosting HBCU Mixer at Hyperion Lounge

Ready to start the summer off right?

Hyperion in Los Angeles

Join Morehouse, Howard and our partner HBCUs in hosting the first Summer Mixer of the season. We will be celebrating the ties that bind us. Enjoy a mixer featuring plenty of attractive, educated black professionals who share a common bond. The venue is owned by a Morehouse Alumnus, Akida Mashaka ’95 and he and his staff are setting it out for us. See you there!

We want to move the date of the Pancake Breakfast to June 29, 2013.  We are doing this to be able to market the event better using some alternative techniques and sell more tickets.

If you want to work with us this year, we want to see you there.  Flipping pancakes, serving at the door, or bringing in your family, your mentees or your folks!

We want you there.  I am asking every Morehouse family to be responsible for at least 10 tickets.   That is $100.  Many of you can do much more.   These are very easy to sell to friends and neighbors.

You can sell them, give them away, donate them to local students or bring everybody in your neighborhood.  Call today to order your tickets.  323-304-3075.

Have you ever thought about a scholarship in your name or your business name or even your graduating class or your crew? 

If you would like to sponsor a scholarship to a local student attending Morehouse, let’s talk.  I can think of little that would be more fulfilling than coming together with a group of friends and funding a scholarship for the next year.
