Vision Statement
If elected as First Vice President, I would be dedicated to furthering the mission of NHAA, Inc. by raising funds for Hampton University and recruiting quality students to attend Hampton. As the First Vice President and the Chairperson of the Council of Reunion Leaders, I would work closely with Reunion Leaders to make sure that they receive the necessary support from NHAA and the University. I have previously served as a Reunion Leader for the Class of 2002. Serving as a Reunion Leader has provided valuable insight and training for the position of First Vice President because I am aware of the hard work and dedication that it takes to organize a class to raise funds.

In addition, I would be dedicated to supporting chapter and region development because I have served as a Chapter President and I understand that our chapters and regions are very important to our goal of building a network of engaged and active alumni, improving our donor base and engaging younger alumni. Indeed, it would be a pleasure to continue to serve NHAA and I ask for your support and vote as the First Vice President.
