Dr. Glenn King, Jr. was working in a bank in Selma when Dr. Julius Jenkins, former president of Concordia College Alabama, walked in and recruited him to continue at the school after finishing junior college. Two years later, Dr. King graduated with a business degree and not long after that, he joined the business faculty.
Dr. King loves his community and his school. "Selma is the historic birthplace of Civil Rights. It’s a powerful city with great history," he says. He says the school's closing will impact the city's economy, but he remains optimistic about the future - both personally and for his community.
