It’s the most exciting time of the year!
Bump the holidays, Spelhouse Homecoming is the most important day of the year. It is the most turnt event Atlanta has to offer. Where else do you find the most successful, the most illustrious, and the most powerful group of black doctors, engineers, lawyers, teachers, judges, and other professionals under one roof?
S P E L H O U S E H O M E C O M I N G.
In case you didn’t know, Spelman produces the most Black female doctors than any other school and Morehouse produces the best of the best, the upper echelon of businessmen. I don’t mean to brag and I say this humbly, there is a reason Spelman is the number one HBCU and the rich, wealthy and elite continue to pour into Morehouse and Spelman, year after year.
We take pride in the legacy that was built before us and the legacy that we build for our little brothers and sisters after us. It should come as no surprise that Spelhouse alums come back not only to fellowship but to give back too.
What better way to give back than the Homecoming Challenge. 2019 marks the third year of this amazing initiative.
The Homecoming Challenge is a movement that encourages alumni from colleges across the country to go back and give back to their alma maters by connecting with freshman class students.
The movement was created in 2017 when internet radio personality Dana Michelle Davenport joined forces with her co-founder, Morehouse Alumni Chris Evans. Davenport, who is a graduate of Spelman College, debuted the challenge during the 2017 Homecoming Edition of her internet radio show Dana Being Dana.
Since its debut, the Homecoming Challenge has expanded the alumni network of freshman year students and has empowered alumni to directly invest in the next generation.
To whom much is given, much is required. Spelman and Morehouse alums are blessed to not only have an education that is unparalleled but also to be in a position where we can give back to students and create a safe space where we can serve as mentors and protectors to these rising stars.
