In memoriam
Theresa Montgomery Okwumabua

Selecting the U of M:

“It offered an educational opportunity in my area of interest. The University was relatively close to home, so I would be able to get back and forth from home in Atlanta to Memphis without much difficulty.”

Giving back to the Memphis community:

“I give back to the U of M as well as the community through my outreach initiatives. As the coordinator of the Community Outreach Lab in the Department of Psychology, I assist University students as they work with community stakeholders in efforts to prevent youth, especially at-risk youth, from engaging in a host of health and life-compromising behaviors, like drinking, using drugs, sexual activity at a young age or dropping out of school. I also give back through Memphis STEPS, a campus-based suicide prevention initiative. As part of this initiative, I also conduct workshops and other educational efforts on suicide prevention for the general community.”

Future of U of M:

“I think the future is very bright for the U of M. The University has established itself as an urban institution of higher education, and the emphasis on research and scholarship will keep it positioned as a viable institution of higher education.”
