Mrs. Ojetta Robinson, LEFT — Marilyn McCoo A Message From The President Ladies and gentlemen of the Class of 1985, on behalf of the Board of Trustees, the fac- ulty, the administration, the staff and the student body of Florida Memorial College, it is my honor to extend warm words o1 congratulations. Many of you have set stan- dards that will have a lasting positive effect on the entire student body as they sort out careers for themselves. You are full-fledged graduates of this historically venerable in- stitution whose origins and roots are among the finest traditions within the American higher educational enterprise. For centuries, scholars and thinkers have pondered the true meaning of education. Plato was deeply concerned with the mean- ing and purpose of education. In The Re- public, he likens the uneducated masses of men to prisoners chained and immobile in an underground cave, with a fire behind them. For these men and women, the only reality is the shadows thrown by the fire on the wall in front of them and the echoes reflected by the wall. The long and painful ascent out of the cave into the light of the Sun is Plato ' s metaphor for the hard upward journey of the soul into the intelligible sphere, where it finally sees the form of the good, itself the giver of the good, the true and the beautiful. DR. WILLIE C. ROBINSON PRESIDENT As graduates of this institution, the temptation to passive self-pity is bound to increase in your new world. Do not let self-pity sap your energy or sour the spirit, which the challenge of your time will require. If you can be sorry for others and still not be sorry for yourself, life will be its own reward. Above all, do not allow self-pity to cause you to remain aloof from the noisy disturbing world around you. Remember, you can help in making the difference between a world which resents the limits of growth and a world which uses the challenge of fair burden to create a more moral society. I hope that the experience of Florida Memorial College as an institution, has given you some basis for belief that even when the resources are less than desired, mutual effort to make more of less can be a positive not a souring experience. An illustration of this principal is evidenced by some of the remarkable achievements made by the College in the face of scarce resources. The new dormitory that is currently under construction is to be available for student occupancy this summer: the Library Campaign Drive generated revenue of $ 1 62,000 to buy books: growth and enrollment is undoubtedly, unparalleled in the highter educational enterprise; and lastly, the current behavior on behalf of the College Family members during the academic year. You are encouraged to remain loyal to your alma mater and to those activities that will improve conditions for all mankind. With all best wishes. Willie C.

The value, usefulness and strength of institutions largely depends upon the character and nature of the founders thereof. It is. therefore, fitting thai we pause here to give remembrance to the founders of this institution, as dedicated pioneers whose vision and valor shaped the beginning of this great institution. One hundered and six years ago. a group of God-fearing and liberty-loving men and women of African descent with the support of missionaries and their resources, prompted by the prevail ing spirit of the times and inspired by the teaching and precepts of God ' s revealed word, formed an institu- tion of humble beginnings and modest pretentions. The buildings and the thousands of graduates of the College are the monuments which validate the trust and personal qualities of the founders and serve as testimonies for those of us who have the responsibility for this legacy — that their courage faith and hope yet live today. " Mr. Melvin Bradley. Special Assistant to President Reagan, gave Founder ' s Day address r,V niiSBBIBBB!iiii ' ' ? FOUNDERS ' TRIBUTE We remember Rev. J.N. Stokes. Sr. who. in 1871, offered a resolu- tion to the Florida Bethlehem Baptist Association calling for the solicitation of funds to draw up plans for the formation of a College of Instruction for Ministers and Children. The resolution was unani- mously adopted. We remember Rev. J.L. Fish who. in 1879. served as the President of the newly formed Florida Baptist Institute. We remember Rev. Dr. Matthew Gilbert who founded Florida Bap- tist Academy at Jacksonville. Florida in 1893. We remember Rev. J.T. Brown who was a devoted founding worker at the Live Oak. Florida Campus and who served as second Presi- dent at the Jacksonville Campus. We remember Mrs. Sarah A. Blocker who was an instructor at the Live Oak campus and the Chief Assistant to the Rev. Dr. Matthew Gilbert in establishing the Florida Baptist Academy at Jacksonville. Florida. i From the humble beginning of Florida Baptist Institute at Live Oak. Florida and Florida Baptist Academy at Jacksonville. Florida, came these founding persons whose vision and insight led us to where we stand now as crusaders for and promoters of Christian princi- ples, academic excellence, and service to humanity. 32 Special Events l!% Homecoming 3 3 34 Homecom; Homecoming 35 TIME FOR A COOL HANGE! 36 Homecoming Homecoming 37 Sandra LaKay Weatherspoon. the daughter of Mr. Willie J.

EGYPTIAN LOVER " 62 Greek Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity holds the distinc- tion of being the first Black Fraternity orga- nized in the United States. In 1906, on the campus of Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, amidst much racial discrimination, sev- eral 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 con- ceived by our seven founders. Today, Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha cover vir- tually every area of the professional world and are found in nearly every major city, and on most college campuses. In addition to this, chapters are located in Jamaica, the Bahamas, England, Europe, and 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 scho lastics and possess finer qualities of man- hood and leadership abilities. Greeks 63 On November 17, 1 9 1 | . at Howard University, Washing- ton, D.C. the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity was founded by three men. Brothers Edgar A. Love, Oscar J. Cooper, and Frank Coleman, in company with Professor Ernest E. Just. These four men, having thoroughly gone over the situation, saw keenly the necessity of such a movement and decided to plant the first or " Mother " Chapter of a Greek Letter. The principles upon which this fraternity is based are set forth in the four words: " Manhood, Schol- arship, Perseverence and Uplift " . The fraternity aims to emphasize Christian Manhood and scholarship attain- ments. Mad Dog — Charles Mcknight — Basileus Atomic Dog — Parish Taylor — V.
