Office of the President
Thank you for allowing me to serve as your eleventh President. I proudly became part of the Alabama A&M University family in July 2009 after a 30-year affiliation with South Carolina State University, most notably as its President. As Alabama A&M University's eleventh President, I joined a distinguished group of administrators who have served since the University's founding in 1875. I am also pleased to say that the University has made some major strides forward under my presidency. My wife Abbiegail and I are happy to live in Huntsville and the Tennessee Valley, one of the loveliest, most dynamic regions of our country.
