After graduating from Texas Southern University with her doctorate degree in Education in 2001, Dr. Brown was able to fully appreciate her ability to persevere as well as the personal accomplishments she had been able to attain as a result of higher education.

This vision, however, was not as simple as putting one student through college. It was, in fact, to put many students through college.

Upon resigning from her position as a public school administrator, Dr. Brown believes that she was thrust into her destiny of providing the means for students to have lifestyles characterized by independence and productivity that a college degree affords. She began the formation of a board of directors shortly thereafter and moved forward with the naming of the organization which was derived from the story of Abraham and Isaac (Genesis 22) along with the geographical location that will serve as the organization’s physical location.

The vision became a plan focused on groups of students who, nationally, have the lowest graduation rates from 4 year universities over a period of six years. The plan has materialized and is now known as The Providence on Southmore, Inc...
