black/african american opinion

Be Someone, Inc.

Educators today face tough choices. Limited funds, increasing expenses and class sizes, and the requirements imposed by federal legislation combine to challenge even the most experienced of educators.

My name is Orrin C. Hudson. I am the founder and president of Be Someone, Inc., and an Atlanta-based nonprofit that promotes academic achievement. Be Someone uses chess, as both a metaphor and a teaching tool, to further self-esteem, responsibility, and analytical thinking among at-risk kids. Be Someone helps kids to develop the practical skills and techniques that enable them to overcome obstacles, seize opportunities, and realize their potential.

My own life is proof that every move counts. A two-time world-open speed chess champion, author, Air Force veteran, and former Alabama State Trooper and entrepreneur, I grew up in an Alabama housing project, the seventh of thirteen children. Lacking direction and purpose during my early teens, I was headed down the wrong path. My high-school teacher took an interest in me and got me on the right path.

Since 2001, we have taught more than 40,000 kids in eight states the meaning of making every move count. Our students have 3 Atlanta Public City-wide chess championship and My DeKalb students and won a state-wide chess champions. Parents and teachers report increased classroom participation, grade point averages, and attendance, along with improved concentration, problem-solving skills, and behavior. Our work had been featured nationally on CNN, Good Morning America, CBS Early Morning Show, People magazine, USA Today. Essence Magazine and Sports Illustrated for Teens and numerous local media outlets.

I would be happy to conduct a hands-on workshop at your school. Please reply this e-mail or call my office today (770-465-6445) to schedule a session or just to talk about the program, which can be customized to meet the needs of your students. You can also find out more about our program at www.besomeone.org.

(BPRW) Spelman College Exceeds Fundraising Goal; Prepares for Next Era of Leadership

$157.8 million—highest ever—raised for scholarships, academic initiatives and facilities


(BLACK PR WIRE) – Atlanta (July 9) — Spelman College today announced that it has exceeded its comprehensive fundraising campaign goal, generating $157.8 million. This is the largest amount raised in the history of the institution. The campaign attracted support for scholarships, academic initiatives, and campus renewal. A record-breaking 12,000, representing 71% of alumnae, made a gift to the campaign.

“When we launched the campaign, we were focused on strengthening the institution’s healthy foundation through increased scholarship support for students, strategic investment in our faculty and academic programs, and capital improvements on our campus. It is very gratifying to have met all of these objectives while exceeding our campaign goal,” says President Beverly Daniel Tatum.

Over the course of the 10-year campaign, scholarship support for Spelman students has tripled, and opportunities for faculty research and development have expanded significantly. The Gordon-Zeto Center for International Education was created with a gift of $17 million, increasing opportunities for student and faculty travel, and providing financial aid for international students. Other highlights include the creation of a signature social justice fellows program, and funding to build a state-of-the-art wellness facility. “From campus expansion and significantly increased housing capacity to dramatic growth in annual alumnae support and a campus-wide focus on wellness, Dr. Tatum has provided exemplary leadership,” says Rosalind Brewer, Chair of the Spelman College Board of Trustees.

With the campaign now at an end, President Tatum has announced her intention to retire on June 30, 2015. “As the campaign closes and I prepare to enter a new decade in my life, it presents a natural time for transition. It is a great time to pass the baton to a new leader, and I am ready to return to my writing,” explains Dr. Tatum, a well-known author, who will turn age 60 this year.

Board Chair Brewer acknowledges this bittersweet moment. “Dr. Tatum has been a true visionary. She and the entire campus community have demonstrated tremendous leadership and stewardship of the institution over the last 12 years. The entire board truly appreciates the significant strides made under this administration. Now it is time not to rest on our laurels, but to build on these accomplishments. As we look ahead, we take pride in the history of strong leadership that has distinguished Spelman College, and we intend to continue that tradition moving forward. It’s an exciting time.”

McPherson and A Lady 2 Luv Productions


- Sponsorship Letter -

My name is Lori Dunn I am an Event Coordinator for Glorice McPherson candidate for Harris County Commissioner Precinct 2. Mrs. McPherson worked as an interior designer for over twenty years and with Arrow Networks for over thirty five years. She would like to empower Harris County Residents with information and opportunities that will embrace any and all endeavors to help our citizens and improve their quality of life, advance their economic success, and thus improve the circumstances of all residents of Harris County. McPherson is currently preparing to host Daddy Daughter Day, Mother Son Fun, and a Family Ball. Fathers of Houston TX will be invited to have brunch, bowling and manicures with their daughters. Mothers and sons will be invited to spend a day golfing with their son, and the entire family will be invited out to a black tie evening event. This is a collaborated movement for an Atlanta, Georgia Non-Profit organization that is working to make these events memorable and hosted Annually Events in Atlanta GA and Houston TX.

We will partner with various non profits and organizations that promote and support the notion of fatherhood, motherhood, community empowerment and entrepreneurship. We will be honoring dads and moms that are active in their children's lives and single parents in Houston, TX, and to empower and encourage dads to be dads. Too many children have become at risk children due to the lack of family support, financial support and mentors due to the economics single parenting. Fathers are not in their children’s life or not spending quality time with them. Single moms are forced to balance work, and family duties, single mothers must work overtime to compensate for the low salaries. Our goal is to bring awareness to this problem and encourage dads to be willing participants in their children’s lives so that our children won’t have to be lost to the streets.

We are looking for sponsorships and guest appearances to participate in our event, to help make this day filled with fun food, entertainment, and gifts that will be memorable for dads and daughters. Sponsorships funds will be used to make the day affordable for fathers, promote the day throughout Houston’s places of worship, and various organizations, Donations to http://Pen Pointe Foundation.net. Funding will also support social networks, radio, and printed media promotions, facility rental and expenses. Several Sponsorship Packages are available and include tickets to the event, company logo or Individual patron name included in promotional material and website advertisement. Thank you in advance for you time and consideration.
