It is with great honor, responsibility, and joy that I bring you greetings on behalf of the spectacular, devoted members of the Detroit Fisk Club (DFC). I am fortunate to have been chosen as a leader for the DFC and have enjoyed my experiences as I continue to grow, learn, and work alongside our membership in this role.
As an alumni club, our goal is to, first and foremost, support the missions of Fisk University and the General Alumni Association of Fisk University, Incorporated (GAAFU). We seek to achieve these goals through service and involvement in our local community. My goal is to aid these processes by streamlining our organizational practices and increasing the number of active alumni, our support of students on campus, and our recruitment numbers. I hope that these goals are sustainable and fulfilling for our membership and that as they are realized, our lives and our communities are enhanced.
Currently, 28 students from the great state of Michigan are enrolled at Fisk. The students represent 17 cities including Metro Detroit, Flint, Jackson, Muskegon, and Port Huron.
Fiskites are great thinkers and doers. Detroit Fisk Club members are educators, doctors, scientists, accountants, executives, administrators, entrepreneurs, creatives, philanthropists, leaders, and learners. Regardless of the industry, we are bound by our love for majestic dear old gold and blue. It is with love and gratitude for Fisk that each of us commits ourselves to the DFC for the support and betterment of our communities and campus.
