After days of meeting and negotiation, I’m happy to announce that HBCU Pulse has secured a partnership with National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Foundation, Inc. NBCAHOF is a staple in the HBCU Community. Founded in 1985, Hall of Fame has aided in the growth and development of HBCUs. They started the Competition of HBCU Queens in 1986, giving our campus queens an opportunity to represent themselves and their institutions on a national platform. To be able to partner with such a prestigious organization, founded 1972 Fort Valley State University Alumnus Thomas Dortch Jr., is astonishing. It’s amazing to be able to start my 2020 this way.
In this capacity, I will be serving as the first Hall of Fame Alumni Ambassador. Through this position and partnership, I aim to keep the central focus of HBCU Pulse in my mind and allow it to lead my thought process and actions. My goal is, and will forever be, to empower HBCU students and provide opportunities to network, connect and obtain resources that allow them to chase their dreams. I’m thankful that Hall of Fame believes in this vision just as much as I do. And, I’m thankful that they believe in me and what we’ve built here at HBCU Pulse in such a short amount of time.
Just a few weeks ago, I released a video on Pulse platforms stating that I would be pursing HBCU Pulse full time after I graduated. When I did this video, I didn’t know that this partnership would happen. Nothing was certain for me except for the growth and work that I put into this platform. But, I took the leap of faith and landed comfortably. I want this to be all of our stories post-graduation. This will be our story.
I look forward to the rest of 2020. This won’t be the only big announcement that we’ll be dropping this year. Stay tuned.
