Cascade United Methodist Church Settles Morris Brown’s Debt

From the CascadePatch:

Cascade United Methodist Church will present $22,000 to Morris Brown College during its 8 a.m. service Sunday and, according to church leaders, fulfill the college’s goal of paying off a $500,000 debt to the U.S. Department of Education.

The funds represent the exact amount needed to help the 130-year-old landmark institution reach its goal of eliminating its current federal government debt, according to a news release from church officials about the funding.

Morris Brown College President Dr. Stanley Pritchett will attend the service to accept the donation.

According to Cascade UMC members, the effort began last month when Senior Pastor Rev. Dr. Marvin A. Moss received a letter from Pritchett announcing the U.S. Department of Education’s offer to settle the college’s multi-million dollar debt with an amount of $500,000.
