Lots of friends and family of the 10 inductees of The Collegiate 100 came out to Sunday’s Pinning Ceremony at Stillman College in Tuscaloosa.   Always nice to have an audience for a special presentation.

 

This past Sunday it was my pleasure to be the keynote speaker for The Collegiate 100 Pinning Ceremony at Stillman College here in Tuscaloosa.

As a charter member of The 100 Black Men of West Alabama, Inc., I aimed to tell the history of this chapter as one of our original Collegiate 100 units when we launched in 2009.

Like the University of Alabama Collegiate 100, the Stillman College Collegiate 100 supports the Education, Mentoring, Health and Wellness and Economic Empowerment Work that we do year-round.   Tonight we also celebrated the first incoming schools at The Collegiate 100 at Shelton State Community College.

The 100 Black Men has a unique relationship with Stillman College, a historically black Presbyterian institution that has been around for more than 137 years.

Former Stillman College President Ernest McNealey was among our 100 Black Men Charter members.    Current President Peter Millet is a current member of our chapter.

The students at Stillman College have an enormous opportunity to change the community around them there in West Alabama.

From my own work with students Oakdale Elementary and Westlawn MIddle School, the West Tuscaloosa corridor is looking for the leadership that these College students can provide.
