The Tom Joyner Foundation is partnering with the Prairie View A&M National Alumni Association (PVAMNAA) to help raise funds to support scholars attending Prairie View A&M.

As a partner with the Tom Joyner Foundation ‘Schools of the Month’, the PVAMNAA and its chapters will be promoted on 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.

Listen below to an interview with PVAMNAA president, Mr. Carl Young.

Prairie View A&M University was established in 1876 during the Reconstruction Period after the Civil War. The University is the first state supported College in Texas for African Americans and the second oldest public institution of higher education in Texas.

Notable alumni of Prairie View include: Charlie Brackins, one of the first African-American NFL quarterbacks; Charles Mose Brown, rhythm and blues pioneer; Inez Beverly Prosser, the first African American woman to earn a doctorate in psychology; and Cynthia Cooper-Dyke, former WNBA player and Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame inductee.
