Welcome to Moton Fellowship Program!
Dear Moton Fellow,
Welcome to The Gloucester Institute! We are excited to have you participate in the 2016 Moton Fellowship Program this summer. You are joining an exclusive group of individuals who are committed to building bridges to solve the problems of today. This is an extraordinary opportunity for you to learn and achieve excellence as you meet national and local leaders and work on behalf of one of the most important and prestigious African American Institutions in this nation. It is our hope that you will successfully matriculate through the program and be awarded the honor to join the ranks of those we call “Moton Fellows.”
After a 30-year career in government, private, and non-profit sector, it is my goal to mentor you and ensure that you are equipped with my knowledge and wisdom. I will forever be committed to your success.
I look forward to meeting you in a week and having a productive summer!
All the best,
Kay Coles James
