A Message From The President

It is with great humility that I assume the role of President of the Earl B. Gilliam Bar Foundation. When I began my educational journey, I did so with limited means and access to financial resources. That is the same struggle that many of my colleagues also had to endure. However, I did not let those struggles deter me, because like so many others, I had a dream of leaving a positive impact on the world.

Two years ago, I was encouraged to apply to serve on the board of directors for the Foundation. Answering that call to serve has touched me in more ways imaginable. I have had the opportunity to work with a group of amazing attorneys, from different walks of life, who came together with the common goal of ensuring that African-American law students and new attorneys are supported emotionally and financially.

As President, I am committed increasing the number African-Americans entering and remaining in the legal community. I will increase the amount of financial support available to law students, recent graduates and new attorneys by continuing to offer innovative and exciting Foundation programs, such as the Civil Rights Luncheon, Summer Soirée Event and Annual Gala. I will continue to collaborate with organizations aimed at diversifying the legal community. In addition, I will continue to strengthen and build relationships with private and public law firms, which will in turn result in greater opportunities for African-American law students and new attorneys in the greater legal community.

Thank you for your support. I am truly honored to have been entrusted to lead the Foundation and look forward to what the future holds.
