Dr. Talley graduated from Rust College in 2011 and earned his masters degree at Alabama A&M where he also worked as a graduated assistant from 2011 to 2012. He went on to obtain his doctorate from Jackson State University in 2018, which, in his opinion, is his most significant professional accomplishment to date, since only 2 percent of the African-American population in the United States holds this type of degree.
During his professional career, Dr. Braque Talley has helped many impoverished students and students from low-income families enroll into the college, as well as adults and first generation college students. He acted as a mentor to countless of college students of all backgrounds and gives hope to students who thought of giving up on themselves and on life, many of whom went on to graduate with a college degree and become quite successful in their careers and communities.
There are many other great accomplishments, but if we listed all of the things Dr. Talley has done, this post may never end! Again, Congratulations, Dr. Braque Talley, on being this year's recipient of the 2020 SCM Humanitarian Award!!!
