History of the Baltimore Chapter

True to the motto “An Eagle is No Ordinary Barnyard Fowl” the originators of the Baltimore Chapter- NCCU Alumni were no ordinary graduates. In the home of Mildred and Robert Stephens, in the mid 1960’s began the nucleus of what was initially a coming together of friends to socialize. From these initial gatherings was formed the Baltimore Alumni Chapter and it would soon be chartered by the National Alumni Association also in its infancy in Durham, NC.

The alumni and friends met regularly and forged a bound of support of their alma mater.

Some of the original members include:

Vivian Bennett
Samuel M. Parham ‘52
Harry E. Smith, Sr. ‘57
Mildred Stephens
Robert Stephens ‘58
Sarah Stroud*
Bernice Turner*

The core group of alumni continued to network through various professional organizations and community associations. They spearheaded social events, fundraisers for scholarships and all in support of their alma mater, North Carolina College now North Carolina Central University.

By 1968 they had communication with fellow Eagles in Washington, DC and Philadelphia. A meeting of the three groups organized what was to become Region I of the national alumni. This organization of active North –East chapters form a strong support of the university and alumni.

Baltimore, the District of Columbia, and Philadelphia, remain active in every aspect of alumni affairs. From Alumni Council to past Regional Vice-presidents
