Dear Fellow Alums,
It has been my distinct pleasure to serve the LeMoyne-Owen National Alumni Association as your President. It has also been an honor to serve with the greatest group of fellow cabinet members during this time and I thank them for their honest, faithful and outstanding leadership to the association.
As we transition to the newly elected officers, all Alumni must give the new administration their full support. All 8,000+ graduates nationwide love and support LOC and this is the foundation we must build upon and the very reason we give financially to support our Alma Mater.
LOC faces challenges like many other HBCUs; and it is up to us as Alumni to collectively support our College.
LOC is located in a city where we are the only HBCU, moreover, non-LOC graduates of HBCUs want to support our beloved LOC.
We must provide to them the necessary leadership and faith in our Alma Mater so this affection can manifest into tangible support for LeMoyne-Owen College.
Collectively, we must connect, engage, and provide financial support to the College.
Thank you all for a great tenure and we all look forward to a greater LOC.
Jeffrey Higgs, ‘84
Immediate Past President
