About the White House Fellowship:

Founded in 1964, the White House Fellows program is one of America's most prestigious programs for leadership and public service. White House Fellowships offer exceptional young men and women first-hand experience working at the highest levels of the federal government. Selected individuals typically spend a year working as a full-time, paid Fellow to senior White House Staff, Cabinet Secretaries and other top-ranking government officials. Fellows also participate in an education program consisting of roundtable discussions with renowned leaders from the private and public sectors, and trips to study U.S. policy in action both domestically and internationally. Fellowships are awarded on a strictly non-partisan basis.
. . . 
In return for the privilege of participating in the Fellowship year, Fellows are expected to apply what they have learned by contributing to the nation as greater leaders in their respective communities, professions, and in public service. Fellows are expected to return to their former or new occupations more experienced in public policy decision-making and better prepared to contribute to national affairs, thereby fulfilling the mission of the program.

Tougaloo Alumni are Getting it Done! Will you help me Congratulate Waikinya Clanton for being named the new Executive Director for the National Organization of Executive Black Women? 

NOBEL-WOMEN WELCOMES A NEW GENERATION OF FEMALE LEADERSHIP
Legislative Organization Nabs Emerging Talent for Executive Director Position 

Washington, DC–Canton, Mississippi native, Ms. Waikinya Clanton has elevated to become one of Washington’s youngest women to watch. With several years of Capitol Hill experience, Clanton has been tasked to serve as the Executive Director of the National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women (NOBEL-Women). 

During her time in the Metropolitan area, Clanton has successfully and methodically navigated Washington power circles, establishing immediate rapport among some of the areas heaviest hitters. 

Over the years, Clanton has been named as an emerging leader by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, profiled in the National Journal, co-authored articles for Politico365.com and named as a Capital Cause Featured Young Philanthropist. She brings to the NOBEL-Women establishment a wealth of knowledge and expertise. 

Prior to joining the NOBEL-Women organization, Clanton previously worked for the United States House of Representatives in the office of Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (MS-2) and served as the President of the Congressional Black Associates (CBA), coordinator of the Deltas on the Hill network and member of the African American Women on the Hill Network (AAWHN).

NOBEL-Women is a non-profit, non-partisan national organization originally established in 1985 to increase and promote the presence of black women in government. NOBEL-Women is composed primarily of current and former black women legislators, in addition to a number of appointed officials. In recent years, NOBEL-Women have expanded its vision to serve as a global voice to address the countless issues affecting the lives of women; despite race, class or orientation.

From its inception, this organization has inspired women to take an active role in public policy and has served as a catalyst to provide economic and social justice for all classes and races of people.

Molding Minds, Shaping Leaders, Fighting Injustices, Actualizing Dreams since 1869.
Introduction

Tougaloo College is an independent, historically black, liberal arts institution, "accessible to all regardless of race, ethnic origin, religion, or creed". Through its diverse curricula and fostering scholarly inquiry, the college prepares its students to be imaginative, self-directed, lifelong learners and mindful thinkers, committed to leadership and service in a global society.  

Tougaloo College, located in Jackson, Mississippi, was founded in 1869 by the American Missionary Association.  Established on the remains of a slave plantation that once served to shackle bodies, minds, and spirits, Tougaloo evolved into an oasis of intellectual freedom and ideals.

 Throughout history, Tougaloo College has been a change agent promoting the College’s core principles of equality, justice and America’s promise.  Achieving national acclaim as the “Cradle of the Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi,” it was within the campus gates that activists convened to develop strategies that resulted in a democratic society we still enjoy today.

Faculty and administrators cultivate students through the transmission of knowledge, the refinement of intellect, the development of character and the encouragement of compassion.  With a student-faculty ratio of 11:1, small classes facilitate personalized attention. The faculty members are distinguished scholars, with over 70% of full-time faculty holding the Ph.D., Ed.D. or terminal degree appropriate to their field. 

The College offers the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science degrees in 29 majors.  Annually, 60% of the graduating seniors go directly to graduate or professional school to pursue advanced degrees. Historically, the College has produced 40% of the African American physicians and dentists practicing in the state of Mississippi and more than one-third of the state’s African American attorneys and educators.

 

The College has established a national reputation and ranks among the top 25 U.S. institutions whose graduates earn Ph.Ds in the science and engineering disciplines and among the top 15 HBCUs in the graduation of females with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences. The Princeton Review and U.S. News and World Report consistently list Tougaloo as one of the Best Colleges in the Southeast. U.S. News and World Report also ranked Tougaloo in the top 20 list of "America's Best Black Colleges."
