Tuskegee student elected president for the National Pre-Alumni Council
TUSKEGEE, Ala. (March 19, 2014) – Jamon Pulliam, a junior psychology major from Detroit, Mich. will serve as president for the National Pre-Alumni Council. Pulliam was elected last month during the UNCF 68th NAC/ 56th NPAC Leadership Conference in Memphis, Tenn.
The National Pre-Alumni Council (NPAC) was created in 1958 to stimulate student interest and participation in the programs of the United Negro College Fund, to preserve and promote loyalty and fellowship between the 39 member colleges and universities, assist in raising funds during the annual campaign and help students become better alumni while in school and upon graduation. The NPAC board is the governing body for the Pre-Alumni Councils located on UNCF’s member colleges and universities campuses.
“Being elected the first National Pre-Alumni Council president from Tuskegee University is truly an honor. Our third president, Dr. Frederick D. Patterson, and his vision to create the UNCF, inspired me to continue the Tuskegee legacy,” Pulliam said. “I am elated to have been given this opportunity and I plan to show through my work and efforts what the distinguished Tuskegee University is all about.
As part of his duties, Jamon will supervise the NPAC and its board, serve as an ex-officio member of all committees, and chair the annual conference. At Tuskegee, Pulliam serves as Tuskegee University Pre-Alumni Council president, Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) Scholar, a Tuskegee University Student Ambassador and a member of Sigma Alpha Pi Honor society.
“Jamon is a great student academically and I look forward to serving as his advisor," said Dr. E. LaShaun Seay, interim associate vice president for Development and Alumni Affairs.
