Clark Atlanta University Receives $100,000 gift towards the Dr. Moses C. Norman, Sr. Endowment Fund (151 hits)

The Beta Psi 1923 Foundation is excited to announce the donation of $100,000 to Clark Atlanta University (CAU) to establish the Dr. Moses C. Norman, Sr. Endowment Fund. Foundation Chairman, Bro. Bill Diggs and board members made the formal presentation to CAU President Dr. Ronald A. Johnson during halftime of the university’s 2018 homecoming football game at Panther Stadium as thousands of CAU students, faculty, and alumni witnessed this joyous occasion.

The endowment is being established in honor of Clark alumnus, the late Bro. Dr. Moses C. Norman, Sr. Dr. Norman was a retired dean of Clark Atlanta University’s School of Education, former area superintendent in Atlanta Public Schools and the 33rd Grand Basileus of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. As an undergraduate student, Bro. Dr. Norman became a member of the fraternity through Beta Psi Chapter in 1954. “He loved his calling, developing and nurturing leaders in the field of education; and he not only loved his students, but he modeled for us all the role of a servant leader in the higher education environment,” said Dr. Johnson, in a statement.

Today’s gift was made possible through the hard work and generosity of the members of the Beta Psi 1923 Foundation in partnership with the Beta Psi Chapter’s 95th Anniversary Alumni Committee. Furthermore, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. was also a major contributor towards the formation of the endowment fund. During the fraternity’s 80th Grand Conclave in New Orleans, 40th Grand Basileus Antonio Knox, Sr. acknowledged the fraternity’s enthusiastic support for this very worthwhile initiative by presenting a $10,000 check to foundation board member, Bro. Raymond Johnson. Grand Basileus Knox stated, “Brother Norman was a true Omega Man, a legend, a giant, a man that earned the highest praise while serving Omega for 62 years.”
