On February 19, 1969, three people signed off on starting the Black Student Union: Robert “Beep” Horne ‘70, Wayne Brody and Willie “Yo” Young ‘72, ‘73. Carlos Jackson ‘58,‘60 signed on as the advisor. Those students went on to become alumni and started the Black Alumni Society, today called the Black Alumni Council.
With approximately 5,000 alumni, the Black Alumni Council exists to support BGSU, its alumni and students of color. The Black Alumni Council provides networking through social and philanthropic events and also focuses on student recruitment, mentorship and internship opportunities to support all of its members.
For BGSU One Day, the BGSU Black Alumni Council is honored to promote and showcase the Clarence Terry Jr. Memorial Scholarship. Clarence Terry Jr. was an admissions counselor who played a significant role in ensuring funding of scholarships for Black students for many decades. Because of him, many Black students received the financial opportunity needed to attend and graduate from BGSU!
