ATLANTA (Aug. 12, 2014) — Clark Atlanta University (CAU) is the Tom Joyner Foundation’s August 2014 School of the Month, a distinction that includes daily promotion on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” (TJMS) to generate scholarship donations from listeners, CAU alumni and friends across the nation.

Nationally syndicated radio personality Tom Joyner formed the Foundation in 1998 in an ongoing effort to assist historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in broadening and strengthening their efforts.  The TJMS airs in 115 markets around the country, reaching nearly eight million listeners every week.  Joyner received an honorary degree from CAU in May of 2004.

 The Clark Atlanta University Alumni Association (CAUAA), under National President Marshall Taggart, also has launched a special campaign to support CAU, “Opportunity Starts At Home.”  Each month through December 2014, the CAUAA will highlight alumni entrepreneurs who have pledged to support CAU.
