Kudos: HBCU Junior College Becomes Four Year College

Clinton College Names New President


A historically black two-year school is stepping and has now grown to four-year collegiate status.   Clinton College joins the ranks of more than 100 HBCU’s across the country offering four-year bachelor degrees to its students.

“Historically Black colleges and universities have always been at the forefront of social change in our nation, and now is no different,” shared Dr. Lester A. McCorn, the new President at Clinton College in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

“With the election of Mayor Keisha Lance-Bottoms in Atlanta and the political elevation of Andrew Gillum in Florida and Stacey Abrams in Georgia we see a new generation of leaders who were developed at HBCUs. In that tradition, Clinton College is helping to shape the next wave of dynamic and progressive agents of social change,” Dr. McCorn continued

Dr. McCorn, an HBCU graduate, is just getting settled at Clinton College after being officially hired a few months ago. The Morehouse College alumnus had previously served as acting president for about a year. Dr. McCorn will be installed as President this weekend, during homecoming, as the school’s 13th president.

“I came to Clinton College with a sense of mission and mandate honed on the campus of Morehouse College and in the confines of the AME Zion Church,” shared the 52-year-old ordained minister. “Clinton College is recommitted to equipping and energizing the minds and hearts of the freedom fighters of the 21st century. Change does not happen inevitably. It must be instigated and initiated by empowered agents and educated advocates. That is our mission,” Dr. McCorn concluded.
