2024 FATHER'S DAY SCHOLARSHIP BRUNCH

The Annual Father’s Day Brunch is the signature event for the Houston Morehouse Alumni Association, whose overall purpose is to increase equity and access to Higher Education for African-American Men. This is done through a robust program that showcases outstanding African-American Fathers and highlights the bond of Fatherhood that binds our ties to the Houston Community.

 

Proceeds from this signature event will be used to provide scholarships for current and future students of Morehouse College, where annual tuition is more than $40,000 per student. The scholarships provided through the brunch will be awarded to qualified Houston area high school seniors and current Morehouse college students, to assist them with financial support to attend and thrive while at Morehouse College and beyond.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR

Serving as the 2024 Father’s Day Brunch chair is an honor that I will cherish and a responsibility that I do not take lightly. As a native Houstonian, alumni of Morehouse College, and a Husband and Father, this event sits at the intersection of three major parts of my life – the part that raised me, the part that molded me, and the part that challenges me daily to become more that I ever thought I could be.

 

Having been blessed to attend Morehouse College as the recipient of a scholarship, I understand firsthand how impactful this type of financial support can be and I am committed to creating an event experience that enables the Houston Morehouse Alumni Association to expand its reach with students in need.

 

Thank you for your support and please know that every financial contribution you make has the potential to impact students’ lives decades in the future.
