Quotes

"I am encouraged by today's news, and applaud the Department of Education for finally taking this step to begin leveling the playing field for so many students and families of color and modest means -- those who most benefit from the Parent PLUS Loan Program,” CBC Chairwoman Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) said. “Access to higher education has long been the key to achieving upward socioeconomic mobility in this country. It is my sincere hope that we will reinforce our commitment to these students and families by implementing these new rules quickly and without further delay."
"We came out as well as we could have hoped under the circumstances" he said. “We are satisfied with the outcome.”
"We're going through the process," McCarthy said. "It's in committee right now. It has a cost to it, so we always try to find an offset. So, I'm working with them to find the offset to get that to become law. I've talked to John about it as well. It's something that he will fight for and he will find the offset to get it done."
CFA’s President Melvin Foote, is pleased with John Momoh’s decision to accept a place on the CFA Board of Directors. Said Foote, "CFA is nearing its 25th year of service to Africa and the African Diaspora and it is now time for us to retool our Board of Directors to better reflect the realities of US – Africa partnerships. The CFA Board going forward will reflect dynamic people both in the United States and in Africa. John Momoh is a pioneer and one of the most respected entrepreneurs in the media industry in Africa. Highly global in his thinking, he brings focused wisdom of the immense potential of the Diaspora to CFA. We at CFA are very fortunate to have him on our Board!"
