Message from the President, Carl Abbott

Atlanta Chapter, NHAA Inc. Updates

Greeting Atlanta Pirate Alum,

My name is Carl Abbott, and this year I take over the Alumni Association president position from Michelle Gipson, c/o ’94 . For those of you who do not know me, I graduated from Hampton University as a member of ONYX IV in 1999.

When I was a younger alumnus, I did not fully realize the impact Hampton University had on my life. It was through Hampton that I came to understand one should take advantage of opportunities, always challenge oneself, and always learn. Doing this has helped me achieve personal and professional success and motivates me to give back — to the alumni and to the students. While I have enjoyed a relatively active career as a volunteer for the Atlanta Alumni, it is particularly exciting to serve as the President of the Atlanta Alumni Association.

My goal is to do everything I can to increase the connections among Hampton alumni of ALL years and to increase the connections with the University. As an executive team, we look forward to connecting with alumni on the basis of their interests through our affiliation efforts and to foster their connections Hampton and the Hamptonians in Atlanta.

I hope to introduce exciting activities that will increase our financial support to our chapter as well as current and future Hamptonians and connect undergraduates with their fellow alumni University based on shared interests. There are many alumni in the local area and with a variety of activities focus on common interests our goal should be to fundraise with a purpose but also with some fun.

I look forward to seeing and meeting as many of you as I can. I want to hear from you. Send me your suggestions on how we can make our Alumni Association a stronger, more engaged organization or you can simply send me a quick note to let me know what you’ve been up to.

Thank you again for allowing me the opportunity to serve as your Alumni Association President. I consider the presidency as an honor because I get to represent all of you. I’m excited about the next two years, and what it holds for us as we partner to strengthen and grow our Alumni Association.
