"Strides To Excellence: Why Not The Best?" 




Shaw University 

Founded 1 865 by Henry Martin Tupper 

One Hundred Thirty Four Years of Dedicated Service 

Unforgettable, Unpredictable, 
Yet Attainable!" 



Dr. Talbert O. Shaw 
President

Raleigh, NC 27601

Historical Perspective 




Tyler Hall 



On December 1,1 865. when Henry Martin Tupper undertook the organization of a theology class as a mean of teaching Freedmen 
to read and interpret the Bible, no one envisioned the end result of this being the establishment of a university. Rapid growth in 
the size of this class led to the purchase of land in 1 866 for the purpose of erecting a building to serve as both church and school. 
The school was named the "Raleigh Institute", and it functioned as such until 1870, when it was 

supplanted by the "Shaw Collegiate Institute". In 1875, it was incorporated as "Shaw University", which name it still bears, with 
the charter specifying that students were to be admitted without regard to race, creed, or sex. The school does not bear the name 
of its founder but of Elijah Shaw, the benefactor, who provided funds for the first building, Shaw Hall, erected in 1871. 

The coeducational emphasis of the institution was noted with the erection of the Estey Seminary (1873), the first Dormitory in 
the United States for "Black Women". Named for its primary benefactor, Jacob Estey, the building was used as a residence hall 
for women until 1968 and for men from 1968 to 1970. The building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and now 
serves as a cultural center for the Raleigh community. 

The University graduated its first college class in 1878; its first class of medical doctors in 1886; awarded its first law degree 
in 1890, and its first pharmacy degree in 1893. In 1909, the Normal Department was supplanted by an Education Department, and 
in 1 9 1 0, the Preparatory Department became a four-year academy. The professional schools were closed in 19 1 8, but the college, 
theological department, and academy were continued, the latter existing until 1926. The theological department became a 
theological .seminary in 1933, and continued as part of the University until 1976, when it became an independent institution. Since 
1921, Shaw has functioned primarily as a liberal arts college, although it has retained its name as a university. 

In 1931, the University elected its first Black president. Dr. William Stuart Nelson, who was president from 1931 to 1936. In 
1963. the University elected its first president, who is an alumnus of the school. Dr. James E. Cheek. He remained president from 
December 1963 through June 1969. Dr. Talbert O. Shaw, the cunent President of Shaw University, has led the 
institution in its "Strides to Excellence" since 1987. President Shaw and Shaw University were the subject of a March 1994 cover 
article in The Chronicle of Higher Education, this country's most important journal on colleges and universities. The article focused 
on the University's recent history, remarking on the great strides it has made and the momentum it has developed. 



The Shaw University Crest 







'The Dove, a Christian symbol, portrays the institution's commitment to a religious 
heritage, which started with the first class that eventually led to the establishment of 
this University. It was a class in theology taught by Dr. Henry Martin Tupper. 
December 1, 1865. The institution has remained an advocate of the Judeo-Christian 
faith. The Olive Branch emphasizes victory and the pursuit of excellence. The Torch 

(carries with it the idea of the light that shows the pathway to truth. The Human 
Figures represent all who have come to and gone from Shaw imbued with the spirit 
so cleariy enunciated in the life of the founder. The Stained Glass Pattern connotes 

ithe interrelation and interdependence of religion and learning proclaimed in the 
school motto: PRO CHRISTO ET HUMANITATE. Religion and learning con- 
ceixed as a joint venture so that character can grow with knowledge has been an 

[integral part of Shaw's tradition since its' founding in 1865.

Tune: "How Can I Leave Thee" 


Hail Dear Old Shaw U, 


Noble thy hallways. 


Thy Sons revere thy name. 


Noble thy grassy plains. 


Long shall thy works be proud. 


Nobler the hearts of men. 


Undimmed thy fame. 


Where thou dost reign. 


Time shall thy praises sing. 


All we who love thy name. 


Glory repay thy tears. 


Stout hearts that shall not fail. 


And Loud thy praises ring. 


All rise and loud proclaim. 


Thru' all the years. 


Alma Mater, Hail!

President's Message 
"Strides to Excellence: Wlty Not The Best?" 



Dear Shawites: 



The production and publication of a yearbook captures the essence of a University and permits one to view 
from a pictoral perspective the vibrancy of its diverse constituency. Certainly the efforts to present the life 
and times of Shaw University 2000 represent, without question, another example of the excellence that can 
be achieved when administrators, faculty, staff, and students direct their energies in achieving specified and 
positive goals. 

This publication comes at a critical juncture in the history of our University. At this very moment, plans are 
undenvay to evaluate the entire University in preparation for reaffirmation by the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools (SACS) in 2002. I am excited about this chance for us to see where we stand in 
reference to national accrediting standards. I have no doubt that we will do well. When one looks at our 
competitive curricula offerings, energized by a faculty of whom 65% hold terminal degrees, it is not by 
chance that on the annual exit evaluation done by graduating seniors in 1999, the University was given 96% 
rating as being highly effective in preparing them for the world of work in their related fields of study. 
Conversely, it is interesting to note that over 80% of entering smdents in 1999 rated the University as highly 
capable of meeting the academic challenges facing the higher education community. 

The Shaw family has every right to look forward to an even brighter fumre. The transformation of its 
physical facilities from no construction and renovation in 1983 to a new $13 million residence hall and 
education complex in 1 995 which gives ourjuniors and seniors the comfort level enjoyed at other institutions, 
and education majors a facility second to none for preparing them to teach in the "virtual" technological 
environment of the 21" century sends the message that this is a highly competitive and caring institution. 

When one looks at the fact that Shaw University has been designated as a Level III institution by the Southern 
Association of Colleges and Schools at its annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia on December 4-8, 1999, more 
impetus is given to our administrative motto of "Strides to Excellence: Why Not The Best?" Graduate 
degrees are being offered by the Shaw University Divinity School which has received full accreditation by 
the American Theological Society (ATS) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Plans are 
underway for the University to offer graduate degrees in Education and Business. 

These are exciting times for us! A committed Board of Trustees, a highly competent faculty, a smdent 
enrollment which has increased seventy-one percent, and over 11,000 alumni scattered throughout this 
country and many foreign countries suggest to me, as president, that the University is healthy and is ready 
to continue preparing smdents to be high quality leaders of America. I applaud the entire Shaw University 
family for documented excellence. 

Shaw Family — your President is still committed to "Strides to Excellence: Why Not The Best?"

Teach me too look and I shall see 

Teach me to hear and I shall listen 

Teach me to sing and I shall rejoice 

For your instructions are imprinted in my mind 

And your shared experiences I shall keep 

What I have learned. I shall treasure 

And by learning to fly

ALPHA KAPPA MU 
HONOR SOCIETY 






\^V?m KRPPfl My 

HONOR SOCIETY 






Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society was founded at Tennessee 
A & I State College on November 26, 1937. Dr. George W. 
Gore, Jr., former Dean of Tennessee A & 1. initiated a meeting 
to discuss the purpose of studying honorary scholastic societies. 
This meeting resulted in the formation of "The Federation of 
Honor Societies." 

The Alpha Omicron Chapter of Alpha Kappa Mu was founded 
on the campus of Shaw University in 1940. In keeping with the 
ideals of academics, and social responsibilities. Alpha Kappa 
Mu is involved in assisting the community-at-large by 
conducting tutorials for school age children, and sponsoring 
food and clothing drives. In 1998, the Chapter implemented a 
campus award, the "Distinguished Teaching Award". This 
award is presented to a faculty member who demonstrates 
teaching at its finest. For all of their efforts and achievements, 
the Alpha Omicron Chapter was awarded the "Nation Chapter 
of The Year" award in March '99.. 





Baptist Student Union 




The Baptist Student Union is a fellowship of college students ] 
seeking to find and implement God's purpose for them and their 
world. It is a program that provides opportunities for an inward 
journey of spiritual growth and an outward journey of service to 
others. It is a non-denominational organization. The Baptist 
Student Union's purpose is to lead students to a commitment to 
Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The Baptist Student Union 
provides activities on the campus for worship, discussion, Bible 
study, and social action. 



Beta Kappa Chi 



Beta Kappa Chi scientific honor society was founded in 1 923 by 
the science faculty and students of Lincoln University, Pennsyl- 
vania. During the recorded period of 1950 to 1953, chapters were 
established at Shaw University and other colleges. By 1992, 
membership had increased to 9.600 individuals in 57 active 
chapters. The purpose of Beta Kappa Chi is to encourage and 
advance scientific education through original investigation, 
dissemination of scientific knowledge and the stimulation of 
high scholarship in pure and applied science. Beta Kappa Chi

In Memoriam 




In Memoriam 



Gone, 

But Not 
Forgotten 



Our Father knows what's best for us, 

So why should we complain- 

We always want the sunshine, 

But He knows there must be rain. 

We love the sound of laughter 

And the merriment of cheer. 

But our hearts would lose their tenderness 

[f we never shed a tear... 

Our Father tests us often 

With suffering and with sorrow, 

He tests us, not to punish us. 

But to help us meet tomorrow... 

For growing trees are strengthened 

When they withstand the storm, 

And the sharp cut of chisel 

aives the marble grace and form... 



God never hurts us needlessly. 

And he never wastes our pain. 

For every loss He sends to us 

Is followed by rich gain... 

And when we count the blessings 

That God has so freely sent. 

We will find no cause for murmuring 

And no time to lament... 

For Our Father loves His children 

And to Him all things are plain 

So He never sends us pleasure 

When the soul's deep need is pain... 

So whenever we are troubled. 

And when everything goes wrong, 

It is just God working in us, to make 

Our spirit strong.

New Life 
(This poem was written based on Ann's conversation) 



God walked with me through the valley 
He cari'ied me over the mountain. 
He sustained me with His love. 
And refilled me from His fountain 

God was the source of my strength 
To endure the battle that I fought. 
He gave me the courage to go on 
And practice the faith that I was taught. 



God took me to higher heights 
In the spirit of His love. 
Now, I have flown away 
Just like the Heavenly dove. 

Don't weep too long for me 

For my soul has found eternal rest. 

I'm in the arms of my loving Jesus- 

The One who always knows best.

Loving Antwan 



We knew you were special- from Day One. 

We didn't know that your"s was the song. 

That would quickly be sung. 

Your talents, your music, your smile, and your love 

Were there for all to see. 

You were excelling, we were rejoicing. 

Great things were to be. 

A precious beginning, that soon became an ending. 

There is so much to say. 

We pray for healing, with the knowledge. 

We'll see you in heaven some day. 

We love you. The Family

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free. 

I'm following the path God laid for me. 

I took His hand when 1 heard Him call. 

I turned my back and left it all. 

I could not stay another day, 

to laugh, to love, to work or play. 

Tasks left undone must stay that way. 

I found the peace at the close of the day. 

If my parting has left a void. 

Then fill it with remembered joy. 

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss 

Ah, yes these things 1 too will miss. 

Be not burdened with times of sorrow. 

1 wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. 

My life's been full, I've savored much. 

Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. 

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief. 

Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. 

Lift up your hearts ands share with me. 

God wanted me now. He set me free. 




Dr. Arlease Gertrude S alley 
September 28, 1946- August 18, 1999 

When Tomorrow Starts Without me 



When tomorrow starts without me. and I'm not here to see. 

If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me. 

I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today. 

While thinking of the many things we didn't get to say. 

I know how much you love me. as much as I love you. 
And each time you think of me, I know you'll miss me too. 

But when tomorrow starts without me. 

Please try to understand that an angel came 

And called my name and took me by the hand. 

And said my place was ready in heaven far above. 

And that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love. 

But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye. 

So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart. 

For every time you think of me. I'm right here in your heart.

Husband/Father 
God saw you were getting tired 

And a cure was not to be 

So he put His arms around you 

And whispered "Come to me" 

With tearful eyes we watched you 

And saw you pass away 

Although we loved you dearly 

We could not make you stay 

A golden heart stopped beating 

Hard working arms to rest 

God broke our hearts 

To pro\ e to us 

He only takes the BEST

vital instruments in o 



in its' entirety. So, I must thanTc you. However, without 
a yearbook staff wl;ose main traits are dedicaticfh ari^ 



hard work, tliis publication would not have been possible] 



Within these pa^es you will find our country's future, 
our university's greatness, and each person's uniqueness. 



Taking on a task such as the 1999-2000 Yearbook 



took a lot of cou

To Tahara and Mason Davis: 

Babies, thank you for the long days and nights 

I stayed away and studied. Thank you both for 

the love and patience you gave me during 
these last three years. I know it was hard for 
you both to understand me at times; so, I dedi- 
cate this degree to my living angels, for God 
gave me a star that has two shining points, and 
they are Tahara and Mason. 
Love Mama! 

The Path We Chose To Walk. . . 

"ijLs •:? •!? tt? f& 

From the start, someone believed you could accomplish great things. 

It was new in the beginning, but deteiTnination kept you going. 

When there were trials and tribulations, there was faith and 

determination to keep you strolling along. Through it all, we still walked the path. 

Of course there was work to be done. This is Shaw U! that great HBCU! Whai else 

would you expect? Through difficult classes, and exams there to understand and lend 

a helping hand was a friend, a study group or an instructor. We may have started out 

timid or shy and finished outspoken always having a reply. 

We leave our mark, however it may be, it's still you and me. 

Remember that friend you met along the way. Remember the fun that made you 

want to stay. Attain all you have learned and keep it to your dying day. What ever 

happens you can always say I walked that path I chose that day. 

Congratulations Graduates!
