Clark Atlanta University has been named the Tom Joyner Foundation’s August 2014 School of the Month, a distinction that includes daily promotion on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” to generate scholarship donations from listeners, CAU alumni and philanthropists from around the country.
The Fly Jock aka the “Hardest Working Man on Radio,” Tom Joyner is a staunch advocate for Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Joyner formed the Foundation in 1998 to expand and strengthen their efforts to provide financial assistance to students attending HBCUs.
The TJMS airs in 115 markets around the country, reaching nearly eight million listeners every week. Joyner received an honorary degree from CAU in May of 2004.
The Clark Atlanta University Alumni Association under National President Marshall Taggart, has also launched a special campaign to support CAU, “Opportunity Starts At Home.” Each month through December 2014, the CAUAA will highlight alumni entrepreneurs who have pledged to support CAU.
