When asked about his new role, Brother King responded,  ” I am excited to take on the position of Director of Business Development. The development of beneficial partnerships is key to

establishing an even stronger support system. It is my goal to find more organizations to partner with that will give us more opportunities to volunteer and partnerships that will give us access to more discounts and benefits for our brothers. I am working on creating an incentive program for graduation and a workshop that will benefit both active and alumni brothers. I hope to increase the amount of quality vendors that we have and help solidify our brand as well. I am always looking for new ideas and I hope that brothers will reach out with any organization they would like to see us potentially partner with.”

Vice President of Leadership and Development, Ruben Hernandez said, “I’m very excited to transition Joe from interim to acting Director.  Joe has made some significant progress in a short time, and has definitely earned this permanent role.  We look forward to many more great things from Joe in the near future. ”
