FLORIOA 330S4 FROM THE EDITORS DESK The 1 976 77 academic year may go into history as one of the best years our institution has witnessed in terms of positive changes. This was so because each section of the College family addressed itself more than before to varying priorities: Firstly, a majority of the faculty and staff who, before and at the beginning of the academic year, had the choice of leaving a dying and hope-depleted FMC, rather than doing this, stayed to help make things better, increased their rate of accessibility and proximity to the students, and revitalized their dedication to duties as the academic year progressed. Secondly, there emerged a group of student leaders with in- comparable determination to improve on the passive actions of past student governments, to advance the cause of students in all subjects, and to form the best liason between students and college personnel. Thirdly, and most importantly was the emergence of an adminis- tration, also of an incomparable style, finesse and belief that the contributions of all members of the college matter, if we should succeed. This administration also made sure that things were done the right way by the right people, and that there was an ever present willing audience in it at all times. The community at large, highly impressed by our various actions, decided too to repossess their college, both financially and morally. Finally, as you journey through this pictoral evidence of our accomplishments and unity, it is surprisingly untarnished by our heterogeneous composition and differences. I only need to sum up by reminding my fellow students to believe in Cicero ' s words that: " There is no more sure tie between friends than when they are united in their objects and wishes " , so we can effectively enjoy the above rare educational and atmospheric advantages now at our disposal. " VERBUM SAPIENTI SATIS " Olu S. Lawal Editor-in-Chief Richard B. Leach Assist. Editor-in-Chief 2 Editorial Dedications Paul V. Moore Dorothy Moore THE MOORES AND MR. MacNAMARA When the management of affairs are entrusted to the right people at the right time for the right results, things work like magic. Such is the present state of things at FMC, where Mr. Paul V. Moore, suddenly changed from regular life and work activities in Pennsylvania, to a call for help in solving a worsening financial problem here in Miami. Since Mr. Moore has, within a very few months of work here, tried to stabilize and assure us of a virile and viable institution, he needs not only a page of dedication, but showers of accolade from all of us. Behind every successful man, is a woman, so goes the adage. Mrs. Dorothy Moore believed in this saying. She has always been around her husband anywhere the latter goes, trying to help mankind. From New York to Pa. and now at FMC in Miami, where not only is she behind her husband, but also working full time - ENTIRELY FREE. Mr. Richard MacNamara, a Business Magnate with long managerial experience and in fact owner of MacNamara, Inc., one of the creditors of the College, agreed to accept the challenging post of Business Manager at a time when that office needed someone with his experi- ence. Not only has he worked impressively in this capacity, but he also worked out a lot of agreeable terms with fellow creditors of the Col lege. Dedicating this page to all these people is not enough. Thank you Mr. Moore, Mrs. Moore, and Mr. MacNamara. Richard MacNamara 3 Dedications Dedications (Cont ' d) Dr. John L. Wilson, at work. Mrs. Pearl B. H. Puryear DR. JOHN L. WILSON AND MRS. PEARL B. H. PURYEAR Dr. John L. Wilson, at a luncheon organized by his colleagues, to honor his retirement Dr. John Lee Wilson has served us here as Registrar and Director of Teacher Training, Dean of the College, Vice-President for Academic Affairs, Administrative Assistant to President R. W. Puryear, and Curator of the F.M.C. Foundation, Chapel Organist, and Professor of Chemistry. With his retirement, on December 23rd, 1 976, Florida Memorial College is losing one of its most loyal, dedicated and devoted scholars. Having served the college for twelve years in all these capacities, the lives of many Black Youths have been changed for the better because John Wilson came this way. In appreciation for all these, the Yearbook Editorial deemed it fit to supplement various activities done already to honor his retirement, with this page dedicated to him and Mrs. Pearl B. H. Puryear who also served Florida Memorial College during perhaps the most important period of its existence to date. She has the distinction of harmony and stood by the side of her illustrious husband, Dr. Royal W. Puryear, as first lady of the campus for a quarter of a century. During her long tenure here, she helped the college to gain state and regional accreditation. Considered one of the best teacher trainers in the country, Mrs. Puryear has touched the lives of more than twenty-five hundred teachers. She was one of the original architects of the teacher-training program in Florida. At this writing, Mrs. Puryear is serving as curator of the Florida Memorial College collection, out of which will come the true history of the College. This publication should be off the press in time for the Centennial in 1979. 4 Dedications Dedications (Cont ' d) ■■ i ■ m Mr. David Fincher, making an appeal at our banquet.

DAVID FINCHER Mr. David Fincher, Chairman of Miami Dade Chamber of Commerce, who has served in many Investigative capacities, between 1957 and 1969 before establishing his Fincher ' s Investigative Agency, Inc. — presently the largest Black employer in Dade County, has been around working with us since the early 70s. He made passionate pleas to members of the public, to support F.M.C. both financially and morally at all times. At the beginning of this academic year at a banquet his Chamber organized, he repeated this plea, and invited those present to another fund-raising banquet he or- ganized with the College. Donations were made at this time. He is the recipient of many local and national awards, o ne of them was given to him by our College on Oct. 24, 1972, in recognition of his love and dedicated service shown to the College. Dedicating this page to you Mr. Fincher is just keeping in line with our residual sense of appreciation here. Speaking about FMC at his Chamber ' s Banquet.

FLORIDA 33DS4 A MESSAGE FROM THE PROVOST CRISIS, CHANGE, AND CHOICES This had been a year of crisis and changes at Florida Memorial College. Those of you who have attended the school in 1 976-77 have been a part of this change. The college was in danger of bankruptcy as the last school year ended. With the suspension of federal aid; with the urgency from creditors for payment of bills totaling almost $600,000; with pressure fro m federal agencies and banks for overdue loan principal and interest payments; with the anxiety of faculty and staff for salary arrears of almost three months; there were grave doubts that Florida Memorial College would be able to open its doors in September, 1976. However, changes in the administration and the Board of Trustees brought new life into an almost hopeless situation. Since then, short-term financial stability has been achieved and disaster has been averted. This was not due to my efforts alone, but I have received accolades from students, faculty, staff, churches, and the community for saving the college. It is important to understand, however, that there are many others who contributed, during this past year, to bring about this immediate short-term financial stability. There will be many others who will build on whatever foundations we have laid. It has always been thus. Over the ninety-seven year history of the two schools which are now Florida Memorial College, hundreds of people have poured their energies and efforts into the task of educating young people in a Christian atmosphere. There are giants — men and women whose names come easily to the mind: Dr. Nathan W. Collier, Mrs. Sarah A. Blocker, Dr. Howard Thurman, Dr. Royal Puryear, the Rev- erend Edward T. Graham, The Reverend R. L. Holley and Dr. Susie C. Holley. Yes, these are some of the giants but there are hundreds of others who have made significant contributions. Many have names just as rec- ognizable, but there are many others whose names have not been noted by the historians. This does not mean that their lives and contributions were in vain. They, too, were invested in a worthy cause. They, too, helped the college through years of struggle with both failures and successes along the way. Crisis and changes have been always present. This has bee n a year of crisis and change for the United States of America. It was a time of looking back on our history and a time of appraising what has happened in the first two hundred years. It was a time of retrospect — but also a time of looking forward. It was a time of celebration and, yet, a time of self evaluation and candid admission that all things are not right in America. The Bicentennial we celebrated in 1976 was also a time when many choices were made. It was a time of assessing Watergate and Vietnam and a time of electing a new President and a search for new ideas in government. It was a time of recognizing that the work of our forefathers was not perfect but, also, a time of appreciating the values they established, the strength of our system of government, and the potential of the next century. This has been a year of crisis and change for Dorothy and I also — a crisis as we faced a decision to uproot our lives and take on a new assignment with a high degree of temporariness — change as we moved hundreds of miles into a strange and unusual situation. We felt the call of God as we made the choice and began to work together here at Florida Memorial College. We have learned anew to accept what Jesus said " Do not be anxious about tomorrow " (Matt 6:25 RSV). We believe he was not saying that we should give up planning, praying, and working toward future goals and objectives; but rather he was saying we should bend our minds and wills to the living of each day as it comes and that we should trust God for the future. This is living in the present to the fullest. As mortals, that is all we can work with at one time. We use the experiences of the past, the training and skills we have acquired as foundation for living in the present and making each day count to the maximum. We face the future with confi- dence when we have the inward assurance that God wants us working where we are in the present. This has been a year of crisis and change in your life also. For every college student, life in college is a period of constant change. New choices come frequently. As you make these choices, you are always building on the foundation of your past choices and experiences. William Shakespeare has said " What ' s past is prologue " . So we need to recognize that the past is but prologue to the future. Those who are young place their emphasis on the future, and rightly so in one respect. However, we live in the present, not in the future; and we live in the present, not divorced from the past but, indeed, influenced heavily by our prior decisions, by our past actions, and choices, and by the baggage accumulated during our past lives. This is why each choice is important; each new friendship is significant; and each day is a new opportunity. Crisis and change are factors in the life of each student regardless of the educational level achieved. Perhaps you haven ' t realized it completely — perhaps you have. To those who are graduating, the change is more apparent as you complete one phase of life and face the future. To those who are just completing your first year, the change from high school to college has brought its own crisis of adjustments to a new life. To those in their middle years, selecting major and minor subjects to study and choos- ing career directions; these, too present crises as the choices you make could set the pattern of your life. As you strive to live in the present and make choices for the future, you need to consider the way in which you want to invest yourself. Choose to serve others and you choose to serve God. This is the way to find true happiness. Choose on some other basis and, in my opinion, life will become less meaningful than it could be. The events of this past year have become history. Although they may remain vivid to all of us who participated, in the long sweep of history of Florida Memorial College, this year will probably be no more significant than many of the other ninety-seven. Our names and our events will be a part of the life of this college. Our crises, our choices, and changes in our lives will be important because other lives are affected through contact with ours. Each of us has affected the life of others, and all of us together have had our influence on Florida Memorial College and the future which lies ahead. May God bless each of you in the choices you have made this year and those you will make in the years ahead. Paul V. Moore, Provost Paul V. Moore, Provost JFloriba jiMemorial (Eollcgt MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN OF THE COLLEGE Members of the Class of 1 977 are to be commended because of the " infinity of finest fortitude in the fixed and fearless, forward dedication " in the pursuit of your first academic degree. Your parents and family are also to be commended for commitment and for the sacrefices un- doubtedly made during the past four years. The faculty and staff of the institution are to be remembered for the advice, counseling, and instruction provided to you in the pursuit of your dream. Yes, the four years you spent here were tumultuous times for Florida Memorial College. This institution, born out of the need to educate young Black men and women, the realization of the hopes and aspirations of so many, often teetered on the edge of a nightmare. In the nearly one hundred years of the institution ' s existence, you may be sure that there have been many trying times for Florida Memorial College. But the need for its continued existence has never been greater than now. And of course, for you, there is no better time to receive an education. It is my hope that you found at Florida Memorial an ambiance which aided and encouraged you in the pursuit of your education. It is my hope that this warm and friendly atmosphere made it easier for you to discover some things about yourself, and to share in and become a part of the Florida Memorial College family. I hope that you seized every opportunity to give of yourself in making this a meaningful experience for you and others. Further, as you leave these familiar halls and enter into new experiences, I hope you will carry with you fond memories of the friends made and experiences shared. Sincerely, Clarence L.

FLORIDA 330S4 DEAN OF STUDENTS ' OFFICE A Message To The Students: An anonymous writer has stated, " to look is one thing. To see what you look at is another. To understand what you see is a third. To learn from what you understand is still some- thing else. But to act on what you learn is what really matters. " As you leave Florida Memorial College and move out into your various communities to begin your I ife ' s career, it is my hope that you can look, see, and understand all of these better as a result of having matriculated at Florida Memorial College. We hope that your many learning experiences (educational, social, spiritual and cultural) have adequately prepared you to be able to act upon what you ' ve learned as well as make your way into the many walks of life. May your " Alma Mater " become a cause for which you will act, work, and take a stand to support financially. Sincerely yours, (Mrs.) Doris N. Carter, Dean of Students Doris N.

PRESIDENT The academic Year 1976 77 marked great and significant changes on the life of the student body of Florida Memorial College. It is a year in which the Student Government Association had a very full opportunity, a reasonable degree of autonomy and power to implement students needs on campus. The Student Government Association brought into prominence again the inactive activities on our campus which include the return of all publications such as the Yearbook, S.G.A. Newsletter and the Lion ' s Den. Adequate social activities were sponsored and promoted to stimulate students ' interests. The old constitution was reviewed and more courses were introduced upon our recommendations to the Academic Dean. We provided many social and recreational affairs in the SUB for students utilization. Above all, the S.G.A. enhanced the morale, enjoyment and dignity of the College in the view of the public through its involvement in National Students Association and Florida Independent Colleges and Universities Association. The S.G.A. stands as an embodiment of pride to the student body. Our prime priority is the students ' interests. The efforts of the present administration deserve high praise for the dynamic procedures employed in solving the financial crisis of the College. Their constant support of the S.G.A. is most encouraging. On behalf of the S.G.A. Officers and student body, I wish to express to Mr. Paul V. Moore, the Provost and Mr. Richard MacNamara, the Business Manager and the entire F.M.C. Staff, our grateful appreciation and highest respect. My Vice President and colleagues in the S.G.A. have given me their unflinching support and I am happy and grateful to them for assisting me in shaping the lives of our students in the most beneficial and enjoyable ways. Congratulations to " The Arch " editorial staff for their successful and excellent publication. To all students, it is with mixed emotions that I say " Good-Bye " with urgent and hopeful request that all of you will rally round the S.G.A. and the Administration to improve on the present development of our beloved College.

Neal, Division Chairperson The Division of Business Administration offers majors in the areas of General Business and Accounting. Due to the increased demand and opportunities for Black busi- nessmen and women, the number of majors in the Divi- sion is expected to increase in response to this demand. The Division of Business Administration has formulated several broad objectives for students. They are to provide the foundation for competent participation in the pro- fessions, business, and government; to stimulate interest in social, economic and civic responsibilities; and to develop proficiency in making sound business decisions and in evaluating policy. It is felt that success in reaching these goals can be achieved in two ways. First, the curriculum in Business Administration and Accounting has been modified and updated in order to offer students more relevant and comprehensive programs. Also, plans are under way to supplement the resources now at our disposal through additional instructional and consultant resources to be provided through the Florida Memorial College Cluster with the National Alliance of Business men, the Black fcxecutive Exchange Program with the National Urban League, the Visiting Lecturer Series and Internship Pro- gram with First National Bank of Miami, the Faculty Loan Program with I BM Corporation, and the Youth Motivation Task Force. These programs will help to better prepare students for industry ' s life-style and also keep both students and faculty informed first-hand about the changes, patterns, and trends in business and industry. Students will be provided with a better understanding of how industry functions and will be alerted to a wide range of career opportunities. The faculty of the Division of Business is currently developing programs leading to a major in Transportation Management and Aviation Administration to be im- plemented in the Fall of 1977. 34 Faculty Paul Wesolowski, Professor Suzanne Lambert, Assistant Professor Phillip Siegel, Assistant Professor Boss Osekre, Assistant Professor BusinessATCCP Faculty 35 Pool Secretaries Patricia Echerri, Pool Secretary Elizabeth Clements, Pool Secretary 36 Faculty The Pool Secretaries, a secretarial system introduced by this Administration, to help fulfill the faculty ' s typing needs.

Orson, Division Chairperson The Division of Education has been involved in many rewarding on-going activities during the 1976-77 academic school year. There have been new educational courses, programs and a plethora of ideas. Whenever anything new is instituted, there are always concerns, gripes, pressures, worries, and anxieties. We claim hav- ing had much of these as well as much of the excitement now that our goals and objectives for the students and community have been significantly and successfully met. Our Teacher Education Center is a unique concept, and we are the only private college in the state of Florida to attempt such an undertaking without special funding. Our pre-student teachers receive instruction on the FMC campus for five weeks, and then take their specified com- petencies to classrooms that are live with children and where they carry out their designated competencies to be evaluated. In addition, we have had other programs going, where our pre-student teachers were gaining field experience along with student growth. Our philosophy for our students in teacher education is to receive a combination of field-experiences along with campus-bound learning. Early Childhood students have participated in teaching- learningexperiences under critical scrutiny in privateand public day care centers, meeting individual needs in teacher preparation. In addition, two new courses were offered during the Spring semester. Attendance was large, and the courses are now a required part of the State Department approved program for Education for FMC. One is NEW TRENDS IN EDUCATION, which consists of professors coming from all over the country who are specialists in their field; they teach components in their field of expertise, such as " Career Education " , " Classroom Discipline " , " Parent- ing " , " Early Childhood " , and other. Video-tapes were made of all sessions to be used in other areas throughout Florida Memorial College. LEARNING DISABILITIES was also offered to students and public school teachers. We hope these courses will lead towards new degrees in Exceptional Childhood Education and related fields where more jobs are presently available. 38 Faculty Pearl B. H. Puryear, Asst.

To achieve the above purpose, the following goals were set: 1. To establish and maintain a data base to provide in- stitutional information to the college administration and to local, national and professional agencies. 2. To conduct research which will assist the institution to create the type of learning environment most conducive to attaining those objectives of the college related to student growth and development. 3. To conduct research which will help in the objective assessment of college programs. 44 Faculty The Library The Library at Florida Memorial College is truly the show place of the campus. The primary purpose of this institution withun an institution is to help the teachers to do a better job of teaching and to help the student to do a better job of learning. Over the past two years th e tight budget which affected every other part of the college also reached its long tentacles into the library. We lost two of our professionally trained librarians, and the Secretary and the Library Technical Assistant were out on maternity leaves. Added to the above was the curtailment of our services from the Cooperative College Library Center through which eighty percent of our purchases and cataloging was obtained. Throughout those lean periods the library staff gave loyal and devoted service to the college community. The interest of the present administration in the on- going progress of the library gives us just reasons to face the future with confidence.

With few exceptions every contact with music is a personally satisfying one. Life would be a dull and empty place if suddenly all the musical sounds, which we have made such an important part of living, were permanently taken away. In the Music Department, we are trying very hard to provide training for music-minded young people, who have a desire to contribute to the improvement of music in the Community, the Society and the entire world. In the area of performance, students are very active in the College Chorale, Ensembles, and individual piano and vocal works. Plans are currently underway to expand the course offerings in instrumental music, to further meet the needs of our students. Roosevelt Williams, Director and Coordinator Facultv 47 Elmo S. Sparks, Assistant Professor, Music and Alumni Affairs Rev. Charles J. Walker, Asst. Professor, Religion Helen Bergavoy, Counselor TCCP 48 Faculty Physical Education Dr. Chester A. Robinson, Head As education becomes more scientific in its procedures of organization, it becomes clear that what is offered for students should be selected with respect to certain consid- erations in mind. It is the belief that the " Total School Health Program " should provide skilled leadership and adequate opportunity for the individual or group to act in situations that are physically wholesome, mentally stimulating, and socially sound. " The Department of Health and Physical Education be- lieves that health and physical education are integral parts of general education since they possess a subject matter es- sential to human beings. It is realized alsothatany institution training teachers to carry forward a program in the public schools must make provisions for specific training for the duties the teacher at the elementary and secondary level must perform. A four-fold program is provided for students. The major divisions of such a program include: (1) the physical en- vironment, (2) health services, (3) instruction in health and physical education, and (4) recreation. The required pro- gram for Freshmen and Sophomores reflects what the col- lege is attempting to do for all of its students. In addition to the required work for Freshmen and Sophomores, all elementary majors take the required courses in this field. Opportunity is provided for one to elect additional hours. With reference to prospective high school teachers of health and physical education, the college provides the required courses in health and physical education for Freshmen and Sophomores. Second level courses, for majors, are at the Junior and Senior level. The outlines of these courses show the activities which the student ex- periences. Each student develops particular skills in one or more of these activities and should be able to handle or supervise one or more of them in the school where he or she is employed. The department recognizes that no program should be allowed to become static and so routine that its real purpose is forgotten. The department, therefore, continuously studies its program to effect improvements where they are needed so that our program may serve as a model for prospective teachers.

Henderson, Assistant Professor Pa— a— r— ty, Homecoming Day. trust you Lions won ' t let us down 50 Faculty Division of Science and Mathematics In science and mathematics, various objectives have been expressed; but, one goal seems particularly clear: the goal of training science-minded young people who have a desire to contribute to the overall improvement and scientific de- velopment of their community. The purposes of the Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics are: 1. To meet the needs of students planning to enter ad- vanced study in Biology and Mathematics 2. To provide training for those students who are prepar- ing to teach Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics in secondary schools 3. To offer courses complementary to the General Studies Program at Florida Memorial College The Division offers courses leading to the B. S. Degree in both Mathematics and Biology, and offers courses in Chemistry and Physics. A consortium arrangement with Howard University in Washington, D. C. provides an op- portunity for Florida Memorial students ito obtain a major in Physics through the Cooperative College Physics Program. An arrangement with Fisk University in Nashville, Tennes- see provides an opportunity for interested students to par- ticipate in a premedical program during the summer. Plans are currently underway to expand the course of- ferings in the division as well as to add new programs to better meet the demands of the communities we serve. Dr. Van Drummond, Division Chairman Faculty 51 Science and Mathematics Sherrylene Allen, Assistant Professor Mathematics It ' s nice to be a Scientist Fred Wright, Assistant Professor Physics 52 Faculty Division of Social Science Dr. Richard Kuhn, Division Chairman The Social Sciences Division has been characterized by growth and change this year. Two new academic programs have been added to the curriculum in Public Administration and Urban Planning, effective this academic year. New faculty who are highly qualified have joined the staff and new students have been recruited to the Divisional pro- grams. Students in the Division have continued to bring credit to the college through their excellent performance in Community Agency field placement assignments. Students also were actively involved in the U.S. Presidential cam- paign this year. For the first time the students have had an opportunity to evaluate academic programs and classes in the Division. The International Symposium on World Hunger spon- sored by the Division, which attracted participants from the U.N., the U.S. Government, and various Consulates and Embassies exemplifies the scholarly and active involvement of the Division. Future plans for growth in the areas of Demography, Gernontology and Social Work are underway for the near future. A continued awareness of social and community needs, as well as the pursuit of academic ex- cellence, will continue to be the hallmarks of the Social Sciences Division.

Hoo, Assistant Professor Faculty 55 Division of Social Science (cont.)(Drug Abuse Programming) The program began July 1, 1973, with a grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Since that time, we have had forty-five (45) students to complete the program. The purpose of this program is to train undergraduate students of junior and senior status to be drug abuse counselors and or educators. The program will provide these students with specific courses necessary for raising their skill level and potential. The program compliments the existing curriculum in the Bachelor of Arts Degree in both Urban Services and Criminal Justice. Emphasis is placed on counseling techniques, and effective drug intervention in minority settings. A consortium between Miami-Dade South who offers the A. A. Degree and Biscayne College who offers the M.A. Degree Program, and Florida Memorial has been es- tablished to insure students moving through a career ladder model. Recruitment for the program is a two-fold drive. On one hand there will be a concerted effort to encourage those not qualified to enter the Florida Memorial College program to enter the consortium where they are eligible. On the other hand, there will be a continuous effort to identify the most qualified candidates to begin training in the Florida Memorial College program. Dutchie Johnson, Assistant Professor Director 56 Faculty THE THIRTEEN COLLEGE CURICULUM PROGRAM AND DIVISION OF GENERAL STUDIES TCCP Division Dorothy Baker, Director It is with esteem pleasure that I extend cordial greetings in behalf of the Division of General Studies and the TCCP family. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to tell you about our exciting program " TCCP " . The General Studies Division, under a Title III Grant, is using the TCCP methodology as its major curriculum of study. The Thirteen College Curriculum Program commonly referred to as " TCCP " evolved from the changing cir- cumstances of American Society and higher education. The need existed for those colleges and universities classified as " developing " to improve the academic experiences of their predominately black student population. In 1967, the Institute for Services to Education (ISE) in Washington, D.C. and thirteen colleges began working cooperatively in developing the Thirteen College Cur- riculum Program. The TCCP curriculum program was an educational experiment that included developing new curriculum materials for the entire freshman year of college in the areas of English, Mathematics, Social Science, Physi- cal Science and Biology, and two (2) sophomore year courses, Humanities and Philosophy. Its mission is to pro- vide an innovative student-centered approach curriculum. The program is designed to reduce the attrition rate of enter- ing freshmen through well thought out creative curriculum materials, new teaching styles and different faculty ar- rangements for instruction. The program has expanded to approximately forty-five (45) colleges utilizing this methodology. The program was instituted on our campus in 1974. It met with such an overwhelming success and has had such a terrific impact that it was adopted by the administration as the General Studies Program for the college. The program is very unique in that it abandons the trad- itional lecture method and seeks to incorporate student involvement in setting up objectives and planning the curriculum. It is student-centered; the teacher serves as a resource person. The classroom atmosphere is conducive to students discovering knowledge rather than being " spoon- fed " knowledge. Monthly " Rap Sessions " are held in which the student is at liberty to present criticisms, suggestions or comments re- lated to the teacher, class program or any other segment of his her campus life. These suggestions are used to institute change and improve the program. The students are given free counseling in academics, career planning, personal, financial aid and social problems. The program is staffed with competent qualified teachers interested in change and above all, in improving education. Projections for the future are to continue with the TCCP methodology and to open a " Skill Center " to aid students who need help in various content subjects. Developmental Reading is presently being offered to students who need the services. An expansion in this area is being planned. Free tutorial services will be offered to the students. The program is already a proven success and has contrib- uted immensely to the educational needs of the students at Florida Memorial College. Faculty 57 TCCP Division(cont.)

Cleo Foster Charles President HISTORY OF ALPHA KAPPA MU HONOR SOCIETY, ALPHA PHI CHAPTER Realizing the need for more recognition of the Negro scholar and stimulation of greater effort towards scholastic excellency among Negro students, Dr. George W. Gore, Jr., then the Dean of Tennessee A and I. State College, conceived the idea that was later to materialize into Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society. In it ' s process of growth and development Alpha Kappa Mu has kept pace with the evolu- tion of social order. Many Black scholars have gone from it ' s rank to achieve eminence in all facets of life that are important to progress. The Alpha Phi Chapter was founded in 1 954 on the St. Augustine campus of Florida Memorial College. Alpha Kappa Mu is the light of education and progress burning brightly today. This can be seen in it ' s motto " Knowledge is Power " .

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity holds the distinction of being the first Black Fraternity organized in the United States. In 1 906, on the campus of Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, amidst much racial discrimination, several Black young men met late into the nights deliberating their future. The gist of these meetings was to discover means of promoting the welfare of each other and inspiring each other to the pursuit of academic excellence and achievement. Out of this meeting was to emerge Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. We still operate on the concepts of " manly deeds, scholarship and love for all mankind " as was the ideals conceived by our seven founders. Today, Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha cover virtually every area of the professional world and are found in nearly every major city, and on most college cam- puses. In addition to this, chapters are located in Jamaica, the Bahamas, England, Europe, the West Indies, Canada and Africa. The Delta Psi Chapter, located on the campus of Florida Memorial College, was founded in 1954 by the then President of the College, Brother Royal Puryear. Aspiring members to our organization must be above average in scholastics and possess finer qualities of manhood and leadership abilities.

K A THE HISTORY OF KAPPA ALPHA PSI FRATERNITY INCORPORATED On January 5, sixty-four years ago Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity was founded on the campus of Indiana Univer- sity in Bloomington, Indiana. It then became the first undergraduate college fraternity to be incorporated by Blacks as a national body in April of the same year. This Epsilon Mu chapter was founded in April of 1966 on the St. Augustine campus of Florida Memorial College. Presently, there are twenty-eight brothers on this campus. Organized around the basic idea of achievement, it has meant progressive accomplishments for the fraternity. Kappa Alpha Psi has grown from its ten founders to become one of the largest fraternities. We ' ve survived the wars and depression, criticism and discrimination to become one of the most observed fraternities in the world. The Brothers of Epsilon Mu kicked off its 1 976-77 school year with the presentation of it ' s Fall line in September of 1976. In November the Brothers were involved in the Annual Polemarch ' s Conference held in Tallahassee, Fla. During the month of December, the Brothers held the first Annual Orange Blossom Classic Ball at the exclusive Howard Johnsons Motor Lodge. Presently the Brothers are active in the formation of a Kappa League for disadvan- taged youth of the Opa Locka, Carol City area.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS ORGANIZATION Florida Memorial College has become the local meeting point of black men and women from all parts of the world. Through the system of slavery the black race was dispersed to all corners of the world. This had destroyed a whole continent and a people. Through the years hope had existed for the coming together of black men and women from all corners of the world. This has now come through with the existence of students from Africa, West Indies and Bahamas working and learning with their American counter-parts, here at Florida Memorial. The International Student Organization came into being during the school year 1975-1976. Its basic purpose then was simply to access foreign students. Now we have expanded our endeavors to include cultural and social visits to schools in the Dade County area. The motto of the organization is " Unity is Strength. " We hope to establish a permanent bond between all men and women. 1 32 Organizations Organizations 133 Social Science Club L-R, Cleo Foster Charles, Jeffrey Ingraham, Eugenie Smith, Beverly Wright, Mrs. Trudy Hoo — Advisor, )imi Adetula — President, Eulease Rolle. 1 34 Organizations Conch Fritters for Sale!!!

Both teams played with courage and tenacity. In the first half the score was extremely close. At the end of the half, there was a stand-off — 37 to 37. There was great excitement and the fans went wild! Although the Jacksonville team players were taller and atone point scored eigth baskets ahead, the FMC team rallied with a closing score of 78 to 71. The Lions team fought hard with a variety of floor shooting and rebounding led by Morris Montgomery, Robert Jackson, Donald Rivers, Robert Riley, and Edward Colier. Good luck, roaring Lions — we are all pulling for you!! SCHOOL PRIDE, SCHOOL SPIRIT FMC IS ALMOST NEAR IT! In the past, there has been little school spirit. Well so much for being down, because FMC is coming around! We had a big boost when the Lions had their first PEP RALLY to start the year 1 976-77. The Lions took first blood of the season by defeating the Tigers of Voorhees College in the FMC gym. The Lions were then off to South Carolina for a three game spread where they met the teams of Morris, Claflin and Voorhees colleges on their home ground. While on the road the Lions defe ated Claflin 83-77 and lost to Voorhees 85-97 and Morris 72-97. Now with a 2-2 record the Lions are once again headed down the road to a S.I.A.C. Championship, and this victory is really going to be based on the spirit of the Lion fans in the gym and on the campus. So, all Lion Fans, don ' t let us down! Just come around and lend a hand to prove you are a true Lion fan at all times. . Sports 147 Sports P O Spectators at the Classic Basketball game at Miami-Dade.
