Earlier in the year, Morehouse College chose not to renew the contract of then President John Silvanus Wilson. Since that decision, the college has struggled trying to find new leadership. The college announced William Taggart as the interim President shortly after Mr. Wilson’s departure. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, William Taggart passed away shortly after being appointed interim-President of the college. The college then proceeded to announce Harold Martin, jr (son of President Harold Martin, Sr of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University) as interim-President. The college aspired to find a permanent solution to the presidency crisis by December. Morehouse College recently announced Dr. David Thomas as the 12th president of Morehouse College. Dr. Thomas is the former dean of the Georgetown School of Business. The President-Elect asserted he has many objectives he wants to fulfill as president of the college, including: raising enrollment, and providing more scholarship dollars. Dr. Thomas aspired to attend Morehouse College after graduating high school, however, could not do so due to financial circumstances. He chose to attend Yale University instead. President-Elect Thomas is no stranger to raising money. While at Georgetown, the school of business exceeded the $100 million dollar fundraising goal by $30 million dollars. President Thomas hopes to give Morehouse that same commitment, and progress.
