From the Desk of the National President

September 10, 2022
Fellow Talladegans and friends,
On January 20, 2009, my wife and I hosted a small group of friends to watch the inauguration of President-elect Barak Obama. As he delivered his address, I recalled the opening paragraph of Charles Dickens’ novel, A Tale of Two Cities. When you juxtapose 2009 economic conditions with the promise of the Obama election, you can understand my comments to our guests that indeed those were the best of times, the worst of times, and the promise of an age of wisdom. It may surprise you that I feel these sentiments apply to Talladega College in 2022. As alumni of this great institution, we can influence how future Degans view this period in our history.
