From his 2nd floor Student Center office, Alvin Ford can hear the loud voices coming from the downstairs canteen and the laughter erupting from the next-door game room. Instead of joining in on the fun Ford works hard to make sure “I Love Morgan Week” is to everyone’s expectations. Working hard on the CAB council he deals with making sure events are acceptable to code, ensuring the president’s approval, and working with other organizations to ensure their attendance. Alvin Ford isn’t a typical employee of Morgan state University. Although he has his own office, the work he provides for the students is voluntary.
He begun working on the activities board in 2014, when they were named the Umoja council. The name has recently changed to the Campus Activity Board (CAB). Alvin Ford is serving as the president of the board, making him an official employee with a spacious office. To reiterate Ford’s multitasking ability, he also serves as Mr. Society of Future Leadership, a member of the Department of Education Student Accreditation Board, an Access peer mentor, A brother of SMOOTH, and a brother of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc.
