Fisk University has made great strides in past year

During this first, important year at Fisk, we worked diligently to mend and renew relationships, as well as build new relationships throughout this wonderful Nashville community. I met, listened to and shared with many of Nashville’s most significant business, government and community leaders, including those with whom I have connected through my current engagement in the Leadership Nashville program. I accepted invitations to serve on a number of boards, committees and service organizations. Through these relationships, I am coming to understand why Nashville is considered the “it” city. The Fisk-Nashville connection is a great base — one on which we intend to build the Fisk Renaissance. With continued diligence, commitment, hard work and the support of this great city, Fisk’s future is promising.
