Chieoke Moore Named 2010 B.R. Brazeal Award Winner During Alumni Crown Forum
By ADD SEYMOUR JR.
(April 8, 2010) – Having taught students everything from civil rights to the proper way to dine at a dinner table, Brailsford Brazeal ’27 left a lasting impression on generations of Morehouse Men, said, Dr. Louis Sullivan ’54, former U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary.
“Dean Brazeal and others inspired us to succeed. They expected that from us,” Sullivan said during the 2010 Alumni Day Crown Forum in the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel. “They made us proud to call ourselves men of Morehouse or Morehouse Men.”
“He was a voice for equality in a world of injustice,” added Henry Goodgame ’84, director of Alumni Relations, Special Events and Annual Giving. “His dedication to Morehouse, the community and higher education left a legacy that will never be forgotten.”
Each year, the Alumni Day Crown Forum recognizes the winner of the B.R. Brazeal Alumni Scholarship Award, which honors Brazeal, a civil rights author who served for 40 years at Morehouse as an economics professor, department chair, academic dean and dean of men before retiring in 1969.
Six finalists, who wrote essays and went through an interview process, were recognized Thursday.
M. Chieoke Moore, a senior accounting major from Pittsburgh was named the winner of the $1,000 scholarship. Seniors W. Dewey Shipman and Kawasi Weston finished second and third.
“The students, nominated by both peers and faculty members, have demonstrated a record of good citizenship, good conduct and decorum; have rendered excellent service to the College and community; demonstrated honesty, integrity and moral character and concern for other students, via involvement in campus activities and community activities,” said Phillip H. McCall ’69, president of the Morehouse College National Alumni Association. “Each was eminently qualified to be the B.R. Brazeal Award winner.”
