Shaw University Founded 1865 by Henry Martin Tupper Celebrating 140 Years of Excellence Dr. Clarence G. Newsome President 118 East South Street Raleigh, NC 27601 (_~ Historical Perspective Dr. Henry Martin Tupper Founder, 1865 - 1893 On December 1 , 1865, when Henry Martin Tupper undertook the organization of a theology class as a means 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 the "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 1 968 and for men from 1 968 to 1 970. 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 1 878, its first class of medical doctors in 1886, awarded its first law degree in 1 890, and its first pharmacy degree in 1 893. In 1 909, 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 1918, 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 193 1 , 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 12th President of Shaw University (1987-2003), led the institution in its "Strides for Excellence: Why Not the Best" campaign. He and Shaw University was the subject of a March 1 994 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. In February 2003, the University named Dr. Clarence G. Newsome the 1 3th President. Under his administration, cutting-edge technological advances have been installed and are operating successfully; land acquisition has increased; promising professional partnerships have been established; and faculty, staff, and student morale is showing good vital signs. His vision, "A New Shaw for a New Millennium," coupled with "Strides to Excellence: Only the Best" truly characterize the administration of Dr. Newsome. Convention Hall - Residence Hall for men Erected in 1881 Named in honor of the Baptist State Convention of NC Dr. Clarence G. Newsome President -- fr r- n ■ Office of the President To My Shaw University Family: This is an exciting time tor Shaw University .is we celebrate 140 years of excellence. The history of Shaw University reflects its daring "firsts" in educational developments and acts of humanitarianism for African Americans and all people. With bold assurance. Shaw continues to build with confidence its legacy of distinction. The challenge placed before us remains steads and that is to prepare a people to live free, self-determining, and productive lives. Indeed, our school dictum. Strides to Excellence: Only the Bc\t. remains our hallmark and driving force that encourages and enriches the lives of students and the quality of this university's instructional and social programs I am proud of Shaw's outstanding faculty and administrators working in tandem to enhance our students' academic and intellectual aspirations. This yearbook highlights the character of our campus, our student life and achievements that are so closely intertw ined with our essential purpose to perform our best. I thank you for publishing this pictorial. What is more.

In closing, I extend to everyone who has participated in preparing these memorable pages, a heartfelt thank you and congratulations on a job well done.

Once you are making millions, living personal jets, riding in a stretch limousine with a chauffeur."please do not forget where you came from. If Shaw University would have turned their backs on us four years ago then who knows where we would be. This was the best year of my life because I had a chance to serve the students!!! As for my Alma Mata. I LOVE IT!!! I LOVE IT!!! 1 LOVE IT!!! There is something that I would like to share with you. The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure. A loop called Confusion. Speed bumps called Friends. Red lights called Enemies. Caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination! An engine called Perseverance! Insurance called Faith! A driver called Jesus! You will make it to a place called Success. I love all of you. May God continue to bless you! -Ebony Johnson, SGA President The acronym, T.E.A.M.S. denoting Together Everyone Achieves Much Success is more than a new aphorism. It is an underlying principle for success! Every significant accomplishment requires teamwork. Our team for success will always include God, family, friends, and trusted associates. To this end, as we forge ahead as alumni, we must remember two fundamental things: 1 ) Shaw University has equipped us for excellence, and 2) the words of a sage "success in life has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It's what you do for others. -Leon D.

Reed, Jr. Telika McCoy Theodore Little Todd Fulton Valeria Page-Fleming William M. Pah-ay Sr. Rejections of the Past ^▼bout 1 40 years ago, Henry Martin Tupper pursued his vision of teaching Freedmen to read and interpret the Bible. This vision blossomed into Shaw University. The 2005-2006 Yearbook Staff wanted to create a yearbook that would take you on a journey of the present, but also through your past. Memories and words allow us to remember emotions and thoughts. But the greatest gift of pictures is the power they give us to reflect on the past using our own imaginations. These pictures become events forever frozen in time that shape our future. Sankofa, a word from the Akan people of Africa, has many translations but one prevalent theme: "one must return to the past in order to move forward." Often times we have trouble reflecting on the day to day activities, not to mention events that occurred 1 or 20 years ago. By reflecting on the past actions of our ancestors (grandparents, parents, friends) even ourselves, we become empowered with the knowledge to follow the path or make a new one. Reflection unites our past and present forever transforming our future. As you turn the pages and return to the past reflect on how the people in these pictures are united with a single vision from 1 40 years ago. They followed their path; it was their connection to Shaw and belief in its vision that pushed them to greatness. They know now what you will learn in time. As you move forward, connect with the same vision; a man and a woman creating a University that made the impossible possible. fiH 90 \ faculty of 1925 Old Divinity School Top Row: John Manley, James E.

After so many had been served the cafe' underwent major renovations and the crowd just keeps growing and growing. At the Shaw University Cafe' you can be sure to meet local and national celebrities munching down on their famous salad bar, exquisite stir fry, fresh hand tossed pizza, custom waffles, delicious omelets, and last but not least their extraordinary southern fried chicken.

Dance Icon, Princess, does not mind posing as she enjoys French fries and tea. What's going on in fashion and technology? Throughout the years, fashion and technology have undergone major transformations. Students on the campus of Shaw University wear and pursue alf the latest styles. On any day it's rare to find two students wearing the same thing; brand name or style wise. Freshman Levon Carson added his opinion by sharing, "Right now everyone loves to rock a little Enecye, Roca Wear, Sean John, but you can catch me in a Avirex and some fresh Jordan's. The girls like to wear the Baby Phat and Apple Bottoms. As far as technology a lot of people have been on the Facebook and My Space." "The styles today include the professional, grown, and sexy look with the button-ups and sweaters but some are sporting the urban styles which include a thermal or white tee and a fresh pair of Air Force 1 's. Particular brands include LRG and Jordan's. The current trends in technology includes Ipods, PSP and The Facebook are big hits of the school year" shares Sophomore Andre Haden. "Alot of girls are wearing the Stiletto boots, snow boots, and bubble coats with fur. I like the guys who wear the casual look, I think it's very sexy. Some names include Roca Wear, Nike, Timberland, Fetish, Prada, Gucci, and Fendi. Phones, bluetooth, the Razr, digital cameras, and Facebook are the top of the technology list" adds Junior Natalie Key. ' You have the professional look, casual look, and the comfortable look which include PJ's and sweatsuits. I love Target, it has some nice career styles and the guys wear Akademiks.

Whether it is in athletics or academics there are always special events being held in support of the students, faculty, staff, and administration. Fan Friday was re-established by Sports Information Director LeCounte Conaway this year to serve as a pep rally for all Shaw Bears to show their support for the football team. Junior Eric Rodgers, a member of the Shaw University "Platinum Sound" Marching Band speaks about Shaw Pride. "Shaw pride goes around the campus being led by the band, cheerleaders, and the football team. Pride leads to success and achievement and that's evident in the accolades and accomplishments by the band, football team, men's tennis, woman's bowling, women's basketball, and in the achievements of individual students. The difference between a Shaw student and a regular college student is we have that "Shaw Pride" and they are just there." w ^^^ The Chi-Chi's and Platinum Marching Band are ambassadors of Shaw U Pride as shown during Fan 1 if f flM V^ 1 4 *J Spectators watch as Coach Clark gives opening remarks at the first pep rally of the season.

Her roots date back to Howard University, Washington, D.C., where the idea for formation was conceived by Ethel Hedgeman Lyle of St. Louis, Missouri, She viewed the Sorority as an instrument for enriching the social and intellectual aspects of college life by providing mental stimulation through interaction with friends and associates. Through the years, however, Alpha Kappa Alpha's function has become more complex. After her incorporation as a perpetual body in 1913, Alpha Kappa Alpha gradually branched out and became the channel through which selected college-trained women improved the socioeconomic conditions in their city, state, nation, and the world. \ tt 2Tf)e Peta ftfjo Chapter of fltft-Jf ratermtp, 3nc.

The Omicron Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. f) P Zeta Phi Beta Sorority was founded on the simple belief that sorority elitism and socializing should not overshadow the real mission for progressive organizations - to address societal mores, ills, prejudices, poverty, and health concerns of the day. Founded January 16, 1920, Zeta began as an idea conceived by five coeds at Howard University in Washington D.C.. Since its inception, the Sorority has chronicled a number of firsts. Zeta Phi Beta was the first Greek-letter organization to charter a chapter in Africa (1948); to form adult and youth auxiliary groups; to centralize its operations in a national headquarters; and to be constitutionally bound to a fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated. ®rje 3fota Chapter of $f)t peta g>tgma Jfratemtt p f Ml Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C., January 9, 1914, by three young African-American male students.

This event occurred in the office of biology Professor Ernest E. Just, the faculty adviser, in the Science Hall (now known as Thirkield Hall). The three liberal arts students were Edgar A. Love, Oscar J. Cooper and Frank Coleman. From the initials of the Greek phrase meaning "friendship is essential to the soul," the name Omega Psi Phi was derived. The phrase was selected as the motto. Manhood, scholarship, perseverance and uplift were adopted as cardinal principles. A decision was made regarding the design for the pin and emblem, and thus ended the first meeting of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity .

Ministries The Order of the eastern §tar University Band University Choir e College of Adult and Professional Education Through its College of Adult and Professional Education (CAPE), Shaw University offers a flexible way for people with full-time demanding work schedules to obtain an undergraduate degree. The University delivers its educational program beyond the confines of the residential college community through nine (9) extramural sites in North Carolina. CAPE provides innovative educational delivery systems for many self-directed, highly motivated persons who are otherwise unable to attend institutions of higher education. CAPE is designed specifically for the mature learner who has demonstrated a deep interest, strong desire, and clear vocational choice and who has expressed a need to participate in an alternative form of education. It offers educational opportunities to those who, because of job or family situations, military service obligations, or unsatisfactory choices of offerings, have been unable to attend institutions of higher education. Through CAPE the faculty affords students a unique opportunity to participate in a process of learning that goes beyond the traditions of a sharply circumscribed campus and calendar. Students are afforded an opportunity to expand their educational horizon through enrolling in undergraduate, graduate and continuing education courses Students are able to earn as they learn through such instructional modes as independent study, internships, seminars, life experiences, and regular classes offered during the day, evenings, and on weekends.

I 153 A chief aim of Shaw University is to provide an educational setting where "Religion and learning go hand in hand and where character grows with knowledge." Therefore, the primary mission of Campus Ministry is to create an environment where the students' religious commitment can be enhanced and authenticated. The Dean of the Chapel, Dr. Quincy Scott, Jr., leads the planning, implementing and/or officiating at a variety of services and programs each week. Not withstanding Shaw's relationship to the Baptist denomination, all worship services and programs are ecumenical. Students are exposed to basic Christian doctrine, regular inquiry to the meaning of Holy Scripture, and issues confronting students at this stage of their development. t. 1 T te Thomas J.

V CpH&f Greetings, It is a privilege to be one of you, or should I say one of us? We are Shaw Bears, I greet you. It has been an honor and pleasure serving as the Co-Editor-in-Chief and becoming a "Shaw Man" at the historic Shaw University. I have gained the essential skills and principles needed to survive in this ever-changing society. Thank you! The restoration of The Bear has been an overwhelming, but exciting experience. The perpetual deadlines, infinite pictures, editing, layouts, headaches, and sleep deprivation are a few of the many tasks and illnesses I experienced during the production (smile). As I adventure into the next plateau of higher learning, I encourage the student body to continue the tradition of The Bear and to never let it die again. As the first Historically Black College or University in the South we have an obligation to document every year of excellence at our beloved institution and I expect only the best! I would like to thank God for the many blessings which includes my family and friends. Mom, Granny, Granddad, and James, you have been an integral in my voyage at Shaw. To my many friends, I say thanks. To Dr. Darryl Bing, Mr. Charles V. Brown, Mrs. Loretta Campbell, and Dr. Clarence G. Newsome, you have been cornerstones to my success here. Lemmy, bust a flick! To my esteemed yearbook advisor, Mrs. Jerelene Carver, thank you for the opportunity. Six months ago we had never even seen each other and now you are an advisor, mentor, and friend. To the 2005-06 yearbook staff, without you none of this would have been possible. Together Everyone Achieves Much Success (T.E.A.M.S.) and that is evident in the production of the 140th Anniversary Special Edition of The Bear. Donald itchell; Jr. Co-Editor 5E CaSdito^r Cm&P It is with great pride that we celebrate collectively in the publication of the 2005-2006 special edition yearbook. This yearbook encompasses the highlights and most memorable moments that the faculty, staff, students, and alumni experienced this year. The production of this book was indeed amongst one of my greatest challenges ever, however; my staff members, Ayesha Givens, Joyce Davis, Jahala Simuel, Randall Vogt, Donald Mitchell Jr., Nathaniel Wallace, Baylen Brooks, Ebonie Kizer, Eboni Blount, and Kamesha Falana made this challenge achievable. While undertaking this enormous task, I loss my mother Nora and I can recall conversations she shared with me encouraging me to do my very best. Thanks Mother! I would like to take this opportunity to express my insurmountable gratitude to members of the Board of Trustees and Dr. Clarence G. Newsome as we celebrate 140 years of Excellence at this great institution. Also, a special thanks to Ms. Carolyn Baker for providing pictures from her archives library. A gracious thanks to Dr. George C. Debnam for providing photos from his personal collection, my daughter, Candice, for her contributions, my husband, Van, for understanding my absence, and Dr. Melvin Carver, Chairman, Art Department at NCCU for his leadership and guidance. Since 1865, this great institution of higher learning has exceeded expectations from the local, state, national, and international communities. The Bear Pride radiates all over the world. With the ongoing support from our esteemed alumni and all of the Shaw Bears who came before us, we are truly grateful that your shoulders were broad enough to allow us to stand. This 140th Special Edition of The Bear represents our motto, Strides to Excellence: Only the Best!" St. Matthew 5:16 Let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Mrs. J#elene F.
