February is Black History Month

The first black UVM graduate was Andrew Harris, Class of 1839.  He went on to be a Baptist pastor.

George W. Henderson, Class of 1877, was the first black elected to Phi Beta Kappa. A former slave, brought to Vermont by a returning soldier, he had a well-documented career as teacher, Congregationalist preacher and college professor. For more information, check out the café in Davis, named in his honor.

CCM salutes both Andrew Harris and George W. Henderson.

Thought of the Month

Dont work to make yourself look good and try to flatter people, but act like slaves of Christ carrying out Gods will from the heart.
