President’s Message Dear Alumni, Members of Supporting Churches and Friends: As the college nears the end of the largest capital development project ever in its history, we are pleased to announce the completion of the already occupied Twin Tower Residence Hall. This 43,500 square feet, three-story facility houses 74 female students on one side and 74 male students on the other. Each side has its own separate entrance and lobby. Each floor, on both sides of the building, has its own computer room and laundry room. Also, a new parking lot is being constructed behind the Wilson-Booker Science Building to provide additional parking spaces. Again, we are forever grateful to Dr. Solomon Jackson, Jr. for blessing the institution with his $10 million gift which made most of these projects possible. All of the physical additions and improvements taking place on the campus are beneficial toward our educational mission of nurturing and preparing students for full and productive careers. From reassessing and strengthening academic programs and educational services that promote students’ intellectual and personal development to challenging them toward Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), we owe it both to our students and to ourselves to ensure the attainment of their success. After all, our number one priority, as an accredited institution, is to ensure student’s future success and to help them in every way to achieve the SAP that ensures that success. We are committed to this, because we want our students to see how much we care about their success. It is not difficult to see that we are all in this together. Morris College, like any viable institution, is a cooperative effort that requires everyone doing his or her part. It involves students being responsible and accountable. It involves the entire faculty and staff being effective and committed. It even involves the continued efforts of our alumni, supporting churches and friends in helping to recruit new students, in making direct gifts to the college, and in encouraging others to do the same. All of the wonderful, positive things taking place at the college could not have been realized without the cooperative efforts of us all working on behalf of improving Morris College. Thank you for cooperating with us, here at Morris College, as we take challenges and turn them into opportunities for our students. I solicit your continuing support and encouragement as the college endeavors to become an even stronger academic center dedicated to helping prepare its students for Satisfactory Academic Progress and success. Again, thank you and God bless you all.

orris College has received an initial contribution of $10,568.07 from the estate of the late Mrs. Eunice Sherard Stephens. It was given to establish the Augustus T. and Eunice S. Stephens Endowed Scholarship Fund for eligible students. Mrs. Stephens attended the college at the high school level where she met Reverend Augustus T. Stephens. Dr. J. J. Starks, her uncle, was president at that time. She and her husband-to-be later transferred to Benedict College where she completed her high school and college studies. A retired educator whose outstanding teaching career covered forty years, Mrs. Stephens voluntarily taught reading to adults who did not know how to read, owned and operated Stephens Flowers & Gift Shop for more than 20 years, and faithfully supported the college. Affiliated with various educational and fraternal organizations, she was a member of Friendship Baptist Church, Aiken, SC. Mrs. Stephens passed away at the age of 102.

Alumnus Isaac C. Joe Shares Why He Donates Land “I Love Morris College . . .”

Morris College THE UPDATE

The 83 acres of land I donated was just a gift to show my appreciation for the immeasurable education I received from Morris College. The college prepared me to be an educator and a positive role model for others. I came up a sharecropper in the rural area of Thomastown in Lee County. The county is only 13 years older than I am. Lee County was founded in 1902. I was born on June 24, 1915. I had to walk five miles to school, and five miles back, every school day. I came up on the rough side of the road and the traveling was not easy during those days. There was no high school for blacks in Lee County. I had a choice of going to school in Sumter, Camden, Hartsville, Darlington, or to the Mayesville Institute. I decided to go to Morris College. I lived in the city, because I had to work (laughs). The first year I was there, I was told that I had to find some money, or I had to go home. I went and talked to Dr. I. D. Pinson, the third president of the college. It was the spring of the year, so Mrs. Pinson put me to work out in the flower yard. Later that day when she returned, she was well pleased with the work I did and sent me to the dining hall to get some supper. Back then, the citizens of Sumter would call to the college looking for young men to work around homes and those kinds of things. I eventually got a job at Jim’s Waffle Shop. It was a brand new business that had been built. I was to make enough money working there, in the evenings or early in the morning, to pay for my tuition. I finished high school there and graduated from the college in 1940. After graduation, I taught school in Lee County for one year. I had to put my educational career on hold so I could serve my country in the United States Army during World War II. I was doing basic training at Camp Lee, Virginia (now, Fort Lee, Virginia) in 1941 when Pearl Harbor was bombed. They were drafting every able bodied man between the ages of 18 to 32. The training I received from Morris College was of great benefit all during the wartime. In the mornings, we did basic training, and in the afternoons I would teach some of the other fellows how to read, write and sign their names. In the army you could not get a check unless you signed for it. You couldn’t sign with an “X” like they did back on the farm. I was also able to work in the office at regimental headquarters with regimental supply sergeants and other high ranking officials. I stayed in the army six years, and was a Master Sergeant for five of those years. I came out of the army in 1947. I was on Okinawa when I decided to come back home and resume by teaching career. Some of my buddies went West in search of better opportunities, but I wanted to get back to the South and help improve life for others. “Brown v. Board of Education” was an important case that helped opened doors so black children could receive an equal education. Blacks children in Lee County, and other counties, went to school for seven months, while white children went to school for nine months. White children had good public schools, even in little towns. Inspired by that 1954 United States Supreme Court’s landmark decision, I pressed forward and earned my master’s degree from, at that time, South Carolina State University in 1956. I returned to Lee County’s educational system in 1957 as the first principal of its newly built Mount Pleasant High School in Elliott, South Carolina - Lee County. I was determined to make a positive difference in the lives of my students as their principal, and I served there for twenty years. Mrs. Blanche Joe, my wife, taught there for more than forty years as an English and literature teacher. After retiring in 1977 as a high school principal, I continued numerous community involvements. From 1981 to 1983, I was fortunate to serve further as a representative in the South Carolina House of Representatives. Education, of course, was among my legislative priorities. I love Morris College. I am proud to be among its graduates, and I appreciate the quality education I received. Yes, Morris College did a lot for me; even bestowed upon me an honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters back in May 2005. So, I donated the land, and I know the college is going to take its value and use it to help educate other deserving young men and women.

Rossie Kearson demonstrates the shooting form that enabled him to become the all-time scoring leader at Morris College.

During the early part of the 1966 college basketball season, the Morris College team led the nation in field goal percentage and scoring. On the team was a young athlete, Rossie Kearson, who attracted national attention for his scoring average and his overall athleticism. The hoopsters brought state and national attention to Sumter, Coach Andrew Pollard and the Morris College athletic program.

He was recruited to play at Morris College, where he received his bachelor of arts degree in elementary education in 1966.

The Hornets lost to Albany State by one point in the finals, primarily because of the opposition’s much taller lineup. Kearson was named the tournament MVP and averaged 26 points per game. Kearson completed his senior season with an impressive 29.5 scoring average, which attracted the attention of a number of scouts.

He was also accorded small college All-America Honorable Mention. Kearson attributed a large portion of his basketball success to the after-school youth development program offered by his school and the New Jersey Educational System. He noted that he “did not see any such programs in operation in the South, thus the kids from up north often had a distinct advantage over local athletes.” He also remembers that he had a period during his senior year which he could devote to honing his skills in basketball. Kearson said, “On Saturday the gyms remained open, which gave

reer, Kearson accepted a job in Wadley, Ga., as an elementary school teacher. In 1968 he returned to Newark to work in public schools, where he taught for 31 years at Franklin Elementary School before retiring in 1999. He currently works as a director in the city’s day care program. Kearson was inducted into the Morris College Athletic Hall of Fame in 1999 as the school’s alltime leading scorer. On Oct. 25, 2012, he was honored by the Newark community with induction into the City’s Hall of Fame. The Morris College basketball team of 1966 achieved a special place in Sumter’s sports history. These former athletes have had successful professional lives, and several have become outstanding coaches. The late Coach Pollard and the members of the ’66 team were successful in bringing state and national attention to our community and achieved a level of athletic performance few have exceeded.
