By Sentinel News Service
Published June 1, 2016

Congressional Black Caucus Chairman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) released the following statement commending President Barack Obama’s recent appointments to the Board of Advisors on Historically Black Colleges and Universities:

“I was happy to hear of the President’s plan to appoint three remarkable leaders to the President’s Board of Advisors on Historically Black Colleges and Universities.  Phyliss Craig-Taylor brings a wealth of experience in academia at numerous universities across the country.  Dr. Lillian Lowery is a trusted scholar with past experience serving on the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability for Young Americans.  Marian Wright Edelman has made a career of creating opportunity for youth as president of the Children’s Defense Fund and through her work with the NAACP legal Defense and Educational Fund.  I am confident that each of these women will work to continually improve our institutions to produce future leaders and innovators who will propel America forward.”
