Dear Atlanta Area Talladegans,
The 2019 Stars of Magnitude (SOM) Awards Luncheon was again a huge success. Many thanks to our Chairs Angela Powell-Smith and Greg McClendon for leading the way to ensure that 300 attendees had a memorable experience.
The following awardees were honored: Martha Pope Hill a retired 33 year employee and financial supporter of Talladega College, George G. Andrews founder of Capitol City Bank and graduate of Morehouse College, Maurice Dukes, Pastor of Cornerstone of Faith Ministries in Lithonia and successful realtor, and the original Lady Tornadoes basketball team (Jennifer Vandross- Walton ’75, Saralyn Truedell ’78, Rev. Shirley Strawter ’78, Marilyn Ross-Turner ’79, Dr. Angela Powell-Smith ’78, Marcia McCall Corither Key ’79, and Claudette Coakley-Watkins).
This event allowed the Atlanta alumni chapter to send the college a check for
$15,000...BE Proud Atlanta!
I am excited about the plans and efforts of Dedicated to Dega fundraising Chairpersons Kristie Purnell and Phyliss Patton. Please support them and the future of Talladega.
