You are cordially invited to the Stephen F Austin State University's NAACP Chapter Unit 6812 5th Annual John Morrison Gala. We are proud to keep this event going strong in honor of John Morrison. He was the last President for the NAACP Nacogdoches chapter. Starting last year, Unit 6812 has renamed the Gala, The John Morrison Gala. John Morrison died of cancer in early 2012 and we want to continue his goal of “Equality and Justice for all..”
One of the main purposes of the Gala is to honor his legacy. Each year, we attempt to make the event bigger & better! This year's keynote speaker is Mia Wright. Mia Wright is Co-Pastor and Director of Ministry at The Fountain of Praise in Houston, Texas, with her husband Pastor Remus Wright. As partners in ministry and church leadership, Remus and Mia have built a 20,000+ member congregation, which grew from 100 members in 1991. Mia is a powerful inspirational speaker, who encourages others with uplifting messages, relevant life stories and life skills that apply in both the faith based and industry sectors. She is also a sought after national motivational speaker, women’s conference presenter, and corporate work / faith / life balance coach.
The Event will be held on Sunday, March 2nd 2014, at 4:00pm in the Stephen F. Austin State University’s Twilight Ballroom. This will be an extravagant event that we do not want you to miss. We are more than delighted to have you, your family, and your chapter! We will be serving dinner, providing entertainment during the event, and celebrating the life of Mr. John Morrison followed by a phenomenal speech by Mia K. Wright.
