AAMU Student Begins Studies in Croatia

 

Kennedy Copeland, an Alabama A&M University junior, is participating in a study abroad program at Libertas International University in Dubrovnik, Croatia. She is enrolled in Introduction to Social Research Methods, International Conflict, Security, and Peace, Diplomacy, Introduction to International Relations, and Comparative Political Systems.

 

Copeland notes that “The courses here are different in structure; classes usually are for 3 hours, but may only last for three weeks.  Due to this, I have time to explore the city and surrounding countries, as well as get certificates at nearby universities."

 

Copeland added that Dubrovnik is becoming a big tourist area due to its cost, being Unesco world heritage site, and as the filming location for "Game of Thrones."

 

"Luckily, I will be leaving at the beginning of June before the big wave of tourists come through," said Copeland.  "I want to thank everyone who supported me. Thanks to you I am living a once in a lifetime experience.”

 

AAMU students interested in studying abroad should contact the Office of Community College Relations & Global Initiatives at Alabama A&M University,
Chandra Glover, director, chandra.glover@aamu.edu, (256) 372-5418.

AN EXIT ENTRY:  When loyal AAMU alumnus Clarene Teague Johnson (c) decided to punctuate her 70th birthday celebration by establishing the Clarene T. Johnson Exit Scholarship Fund to assist students whose only barrier to a graduation exit was a small financial balance, she not only fulfilled one of her dreams, but she attracted some supporters, as well.  Members of the Xi Omicron Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., donated $1,000 to the fund.  Pictured (from l-r) are Archie Tucker, AAMU vice president for marketing, communication and advancement; Gerald Vines, Xi Omicron Chapter; AAMU President Andrew Hugine, Jr.; Clarene Teague Johnson, founder of the fund; E.C.

“Shift” Conference Pushes Self-Transformation

 

Sometimes, the only thing standing in the way of total self-transformation is a little guidance.  A conference set for mid-February is designed to direct individuals to the help they need for both healing and growth.

 

The power of good information rang true one day when Dr. Patricia Haley happened upon a woman stricken with breast cancer.  The woman’s talent was her livelihood, so severe illness meant that she was unable to support herself.

 

“The woman lost everything,” recalled Haley, a native of Jacksonville, Fla., who admits that she, too, experienced many problems in her own life. 

 

Haley said she told the woman about services offered through United Way and her to contact the offices for assistance.  Haley then began to wonder whether there were others out there who were in desperate need of help but had no idea about where to find it.

 

Shift3.jpgThrough Patricia Haley Foundation, Haley is sponsoring a city-wide conference, “The Shift: From Broken to Healed,” on Monday, February 19, in the Clyde Foster Auditorium on the Alabama A&M University campus from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

 

The conference will feature health screenings and representatives from various non-profit and community organizations.  At 6 p.m., a banquet will be held at the DesignLab on Meridian Street (former Lincoln Mill area), with inspiration from Pastor Carlton Byrd of Oakwood University Church and the Gospel Choir.

 

People need to know that there are resources out there to help them with those things that are breaking them, notes Haley.  There are programs to assist with medical, housing and several other issues.

 

Patricia Haley Ministries is a two-year-old 501c charity that works with cancer patients, offering encouragement and assisting with the provision of needed medicine.  While she has been a resident of Huntsville for some 26 years, she has been active in ministry for 15 years.  Her devotion to her organization stems from the severe troubles and mental anguish she witnessed her mother experience as a result of a tumultuous childhood.

 

Haley believes that guidance and proper information can have a life-changing impact on individuals.  For more information about the conference and the organization, visit www.PatriciaHaleyMinistry.org or call (256) 683-7287.

A&M’s University Choir Starts on ‘High Note’

by Jazzmine Walker

 

The Alabama A&MAlabama A&M University Choir has been formally acknowledged as one of the top 5 collegiate choirs in the state of Alabama.

 

After attending a developmental session at the Alabama Music Educators Association (AMEA) 2018 Conference on January 20, the choir was soon notified through an official letter to Dr. Horace Carney, Visual and Fine Arts Chair/Interim Choir Director, that it was ranked as one of the top 5 collegiate choral ensembles within the state.

 

This was not the first time that the choir has been acknowledged for its superior skills while away performing away from its campus.  The Choir also was afforded the opportunity to sing in New York’s Lincoln Center in 2014 and at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., with other HBCU choirs for the 105 Voices of History in 2015.

 

The AMEA conference was held for three days in Birmingham’s Jefferson Convention Center, where various choirs, from middle to collegiate level, bands, professors, and students attended.

 

Throughout the three days, the AAMU Choir emerged as the only HBCU choir to perform for this auspicious occasion, a fact realized after the conference had ended.

 

Meanwhile, Carney avidly searches for every opportunity to showcase the Choir’s ability.  Thus, when it came time to audition for the conference, he made sure the ensemble recorded a stellar audition that would guarantee a spot at the event.

 

The choir performed both classical and spiritual pieces specifically chosen by Carney, with earnest attention to composition, expressive text, and a full sound that would showcase the talents of the choir. Among the songs performed were:  “Ave Maria,” “Fecit Potentiam” from John Rutter’s Magnificat, “Balm in Gilead,” “Hehlehlooyuh,” “Hold On," and the choir’s signature piece by Stacey V. Gibbs, “Be Still and Know.”

  

“I was dumbfounded and had to read the letter over and over again,” stated Carney, reflecting on the performance and the letter from AMEA.  He added that the choir “considered it a high honor” to be chosen from their audition.

 

Carney knows that with the excellent performance the group put on they have definitely enhanced the public relations for the group.  This, in turn, will open even more doors of opportunity for the ensemble in the future.

Recapturing Glory:  AAMU's Women's Bowling Team Making Comeback

by Jasmine Searcy

 

 

Have you ever heard about Alabama A&M University’s collegiate women’s bowling team? If so, have you heard about it … since 2014? If you have heard about the Lady Bulldogs in more recent years then, chances are, you’ve been doing some serious research. That could very well be about to change.

 

Perusing the old archives of AAMU bowling history, one might form the impression that the rich and greatest history of the team was suddenly hidden from the public eye. 

 

In 1998, Huntsville native Jeff McCorvey started the bowling program at the McCorvey.jpeg
university. McCorvey has been a PBA member since 1986. He was inducted in Alabama State Hall of Fame and the Huntsville Hall of Fame. He became the assistant head coach for two years and helped A&M to achieve eight to eight perfect tournament records. SWAC bowling standards require each team to have eight outside tournaments, not including any of the SWAC tournaments, to compete higher. In 2001, he became the head coach.  For the first 5 out of 6 years of the program, the Lady Bulldogs were champions.  

 

The winning streak of the team started an epidemic on campus. On April 15, 2006, the team made national news, as they went to the finals of the NCAA tournament. They won the Runner-up title against Fairleigh Dickerson University to win 4 to 1 games for the first national title. In 2009, they were on a five-year winning streak of 12 titles of the 15-year existence.  

 

Coach McCorvey not only taught the importance of bowling but he fought for academic achievement. He led the team to push toward good grades and higher GPAs. The Academic Progress Rate (APR) measures how scholarship student-athletes are performing term by term throughout the school year. It is a composite team measurement based on how individual team members do academically. For 6 seasons straight, the team’s APR score was a perfect 1000. 

 

Tiffany-Amber Nicole Stage, a former bowling teammate, said:  “He taught us that no matter how difficult the situation may be, we could always get through it and succeed”. The team had great chemistry and fought to the end against Alabama State University in 2014, winning the SWAC Championship.

 

Stage was only with Coach McCovey for six months, until he suddenly announced his retirement to the students, faculty, and staff in 2014. Why the sudden retirement?  No one knows, it seems.  Where is the man with the victories under his belt?  Why did the program fall into silence, almost to the point that some students do not even know that there is a women’s bowling team? 

 

Investigative journalism, however, has revealed a possible resurgence ahead.  A road beyond the hidden history will no doubt lead to what’s ahead for the Lady Bulldog bowling team.   Stay tuned.
