Hugh M. Gloster Society
In 2007, we launched the Hugh M. Gloster Society. Named in honor of one of MSMs esteemed founders and late president of Morehouse College, the Gloster Society was established to help grow philanthropy and to enhance our knowledge of exceptional generosity to the Annual Fund. Annual gifts support student scholarships, the library, and classroom and technology enhancements. Since 2007, approximately 300 individuals, corporations, and foundations have become members of the Gloster Society.
