“I am very proud of our graduating seniors who continue to carry the great tradition and legacy of those before them and I am thrilled to know a high percentage will attend graduate school,” said Morris Brown President Stanley J. Pritchett. “It is an honor to have the deputy postmaster general address us. We look forward to an inspirational message from our nation’s second highest postal executive who oversees an organization of over 600,000 employees. Similar to our path of overcoming incredible odds to sustain during turbulent times, he took on a major responsibility with the postal service at a critical point in its restructuring. He can understand the road we have traveled and some of the challenges that lie ahead.”
