Dr. Jacquline Walters to be inducted into the National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame (237 hits)

An Alcorn State University alumna who has found success in the medical field and entertainment will be acknowledged at an upcoming event that celebrates accomplished Historically Black College and University (HBCU) graduates.

Dr. Jacqueline Walters, also known as “Dr. Jackie,” will be inducted into the National Black College Alumni Foundation's 2019 Hall of Fame Friday, Sept. 27 at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta in Georgia. The National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame Foundation, Inc. is dedicated to sustaining and growing HBCUs through alumni recognition, scholarships, training, and technical assistance and programs to promote humanitarian involvement.

To be recognized for her success is an honor for Walters. She credits her moral compass and hard work for the accolades she receives.

"Being inducted into the National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame is not only special for me, but also deeply profound," said Walters. "It is an honor to be recognized, but I truly hope that the life I live continues to be worthy of this recognition."

After years of earning a bachelor's degree from Alcorn, Walters still remembers and credits the university that provided her with a blueprint for finding professional affluence.

"Alcorn's history, preparation, and belief in me created strength in times when my life seemed difficult. Remembering Alcorn has always made me realize not just the importance and the vital need for Alcorn, but for all HBCUs."

Walters has found fame in the medical field in Atlanta, Georgia. She has remained in private practice for 20 years and maintains a professional clientele that includes the Braxtons, rapper T.I., and Usher. She's also a cast member on Bravo's hit reality TV show, "Married to Medicine."

Walters, who is a two-time breast cancer survivor, understands the effects of personal health challenges. As a dedicated teacher, she has assimilated a women's Wellness Program into her practice to help eradicate the increasing number of heart disease cases amongst women. In 2013, Dr. Walters founded the 50 Shades of Pink Foundation, an organization that pays tribute to women and men diagnosed with breast cancer, nurturing their psychological and physical well-being.

The charity's mission is to treat the inner and outer beauty of breast cancer survivors. It hosts an annual fundraising luncheon in October that allows the foundation to further awareness through gifting, sponsorship of various health initiatives, and family workshops.
