The Bush School of Government and Public Service, in partnership with the Texas A&M University Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life, invites the public to join us on Tuesday February 22, 2022 at 4:30 p.m. for our annual Black History Month event, Salute to the Divine Legacy of Black Sororities and Fraternities. Program will take place on the Texas A&M campus at the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center and parking is provided in Lot 43.
This year’s speaker, Dr. Walter Kimbrough, is the President of Dillard University in New Orleans and a well-known scholar of fraternities and sororities with specific expertise regarding historically Black, Latin and Asian groups. “Dr. Kimbrough is figuratively and literally the best suited person in the U.S. to have for an event which highlights the contributions of Black Greek Letter Organization members to the public service sector,” said Professor Kenneth Taylor of the Bush School’s Department of Public Service and Administration.
Dr. Kimbrough’s tenure is one marked by achievements that have lifted his University’s national profile. Under President Kimbrough’s leadership, Dillard has risen to new heights in fundraising, enrollment, academics, co-curricular programming and student support. Kimbrough has also become an engaged community voice, as well. A proud native of Atlanta, President Kimbrough was his high school’s salutatorian and student body president in 1985. He went on to earn his bachelor’s degree from the University of Georgia, his master’s from Miami University in Ohio and his Ph.D. in higher education from Georgia State University.
