Lee University Students Hit One Out of the Park through Service          
            Eight freshman from Lee University exercised compassion and service by chaperoning and mentoring a group of 12 Mentees from the 100 Black Men of Bradley County Inc., (100 BMBC Inc.) to a Chattanooga Lookouts baseball game.   On August 22, 2009 the students, mentees, and a few members of the 100 Black Men of Bradley County, including Mr. Abu Swafford, the president of this organization, enjoyed the comforts of a box suite and free tickets, thanks to AT&T and First Tennessee Bank. 
 
The college students are in Dr. Michael Laney’s freshman gateway class, which focuses on service and the transition for freshmen from high school to college.  These students were giving back, in support of the service mission of Lee University, by spending their time to act as positive influences on this group of middle school youth from Bradley County.  Mr. Swafford stated of the event, Students and mentees enjoy the view from their box seats;Photo by: Dr. Michael Laney

“We are most grateful to Mrs. Adonia Johnson Latham & First Tennessee Bank for the tickets and especially to the students at Lee University for chaperoning and mentoring our group of students at the baseball game.  We could not have done it without them.”

In 2011, the 100 Black Men of America, Inc. turns its attention to the matter of education. During our 25rd Annual Conference, June 10th – 14th our focus is on the increasing challenge of providing access to a rich variety of educational options for youth in our community. During the conference, our focus is on the plight of the Nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities; we also take a long sustained look at the condition of the Black Male in Education, and the challenge he faces in trying to achieve social and economic mobility in a country that seems to have education as a minimum requirement for achieving personal and professional success.
