About Us — Club President


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.

Thank you for vis­it­ing our web­site. Please stay con­nect­ed and informed by fol­low­ing us on social media. If you are a Fisk alum­nus out­side of Michigan, please vis­it GAAFU online for more infor­ma­tion about GAAFU and to find the alum­ni club near­est you.

Fisk Forever and Always,
