Clark Atlanta University is the Tom Joyner Foundation’s August 2014 ‘School of the Month’. The foundation, formed by the nationally syndicated radio personality, chose Clark Atlanta, as part of its on-going effort to assist these institutions in broadening and strengthening their efforts to raise money to help keep students attending HBCUs.
As one of the Tom Joyner Foundation ‘Schools of the Month’, each school will be promoted by the Tom Joyner Morning Show and receive those funds raised from listeners, alumni and other interested parties that month. The show, aired in 115 markets around the country, reaches nearly eight million listeners every week.
As a proud 1979 graduate of Clark College with degree in Business, my matriculation there set the stage for the wide range of experiences and success that I have had over the past 35 years. One of them is my entrepreneurial ventures. My company, Rbellah LLC is partnering with the Tom Joyner Foundation to raise funds to support students much like myself all those years ago.

It is a marvelous opportunity to be honored as the representative for the Dallas Fort Worth Chapter. I have a long history with the chapter, including being the first president of the chapter when it was organized in 1988. Now as a Lifetime Member of the Clark Atlanta University Alumni Association, Inc. I am proud to be able to be a supporter to champion the continuing success of the university, my community and society at large. CAU combined mottoes are just as pertinent today as they were 25 years ago: “Culture for Service” and “I’ll find a way or make one!”
