Earlier in the year, the Morehouse College Board of Trustees decided not to renew the contract of former President John Silvanus Wilson. Morehouse College later on announced that William "Bill' Taggart would assume the duties of interim-president. However, Mr. Taggart passed away suddenly a few months after due to a brain aneurysm. Since the passing of Mr. Taggart, Morehouse College has been in search of an interim-president to assume the day-to-day responsibilities. It is with great joy that we announce that Morehouse College has appointed Harold Martin, Jr. as the next interim-president of Morehouse College. Mr. Martin graduated from Morehouse with a business administration degree, as well as an MBA from Harvard University and a law degree from Yale University. He will immediately take over the leadership responsibility of the college.
