Celebrating

Thirty  Six Years of Service

1981 – 2017

Women for Morris Brown College, Inc. was founded by Helen Kilpatrick Threatt, wife of the twelfth president, Dr. Robert Threatt, during the college’s Centennial Celebration in 1981.  The idea was solidified one Sunday afternoon over light refreshments at the home of the president.  It was there, approximately twelve women gathered to discuss the purpose and goals of what would become 'Women for Morris Brown College'.

The founding committee included members of the college faculty, staff, alumnae and Miss Morris Brown College.   They included: Evelyn D. Brown, Marie W. Brown, Louise T. Hollowell, Miranda Mack, Magnoria Smothers, Corine Taylor, Helen Kilpatrick Threatt, M. Paulyn Morgan White, Joyce Porter Wyatt and Karen Yvette Wyatt, Miss Morris Brown College, Centennial Queen.

 One May 22, 1982, more than one hundred women graduates representing Morris Brown College, and other historically Black UNCF colleges and universities, became charter members.   The organization was charted by the State of Georgia in 1982 and an installation ceremonial event was presided over by Dr. Robert Threatt, Morris Brown College’s twelfth President.   Sixty additional women joined during the charter year.  The Installation Ceremony was coordinated by Joyce Porter Wyatt and was held in Viola J. Hill Auditorium on the main campus.  Reverend Gabriel S. Hardeman offered the installation prayer.  Marilyn Jackson sang the “Impossible Dream”.  The organization presented more than $ 100,000 during its charter year.
