What a week it has been for Valerie Montgomery Rice.
She was inaugurated as the sixth president of the Morehouse School of Medicine (and its first woman president) during a multi-day series of events that would be exhausting for an ordinary person.
After the investiture ceremony on Thursday, President Rice participated in six community service projects Friday morning to highlight the six different president of the Morehouse School of Medicine.
She was then the guest of honor at a “Power of Women” luncheon at the Ritz Carlton Atlanta, a “one-of-a-kind” event that was organized by her honor herself – Xernona Clayton – a civil rights legend in the city.
No detail was left to chance – from the clear plastic chairs to the special table cloths to the floral arrangements to the gigantic prawns rather than shrimp.
