The foundation, formed by the nationally syndicated radio personality, chose North Carolina A&T as part of its on-going effort to assist these institutions in broadening and strengthening their efforts to raise money to help keep students attending HBCUs.
As one of the Tom Joyner Foundation ‘Schools of the Month’, each school will be promoted by the Tom Joyner Morning Show and receive those funds raised from listeners, alumni and other interested parties that month. The show, aired in 115 markets around the country, reaches nearly eight million listeners every week.
North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is a public, doctoral/research, 1890 land-grant university. Twelve presidents/chancellors have served the university since its founding. The current chancellor, who is also an alumnus, is Dr. Harold L. Martin, Sr. Dr. Martin has served since 2009.
The university offers degrees at the baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral levels. These broad range of disciplines prepare students to become future leaders by being exposed to various experiences while also fostering intellectual stimulation and growth to serve the North Carolina A&T community and the world.
The university has many notable rankings and recognitions. North Carolina A&T is home to the largest agricultural school among historically black colleges and is the nation’s second largest producer of minority agricultural graduates. Notable alumni include: Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr., civil rights activist, the late astronaut Dr. Ronald E. McNair, the Greensboro/A&T Four: Jibreel Khazan, Joseph McNeil, Franklin McCain and the late David Richmond, and Terrence Jenkins (Terrence J), former host of BET’s 106 & Park, to name a few.
North Carolina A&T’s legacy and educational philosophy has provided its students for success to meet the demands of an ever-changing society and represent what it means to have Aggie Pride (Achieving . Great. Goals. In. Everything. Producing. Renowned. Individuals. Dedicated. To. Excellence.)
