Voorhees College Day of Giving Stream-a-Thon
Posted By: Prince Brown on November 13, 2020

Denmark, S.C.- After recently launching the Tigers Gladly Invest in Voorhees Education (G.I.V.E) Campaign, Voorhees College announces actress and singer Jo Marie Payton the official campaign chairperson.

As chairperson, Payton will be promoting Tiger GIVE and asking for world-wide support to help reach the institution’s goal of $1M. Also, she will be making several appearances throughout the live event, which will now be a 12-hour day of giving on Tuesday, Dec. 1, from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. E.S.T.

Payton said it is an honor to serve as chairperson to support Voorhees College. “We are in unprecedented times, and our young men and women need support to continue their educational journeys. I hope that we can come together and contribute toward such a worthy cause that can make a difference in the lives of many deserving students.”

She is an internationally acclaimed actress and an accomplished singer. Payton has performed emorable performances on stage, screen, and television. Her professional career spans over 40 years. She is most noted for her portrayal of “Harriette Winslow” on the “Family Matters” T.V.



show, which is still the longest-running all African-American cast show on a major television network in history.

Payton is also well known for her portrayal of the ever-popular character “Suga Mama” of Disney’s awardwinning show “Proud Family.” She has been nominated eight consecutive times for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a children’s show by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Image Awards. She is also the recipient of the National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications Vision Award.

Her community advocacy and philanthropy have been stellar on both coasts. She has provided numerous scholarships for deserving students to continue their education, and she holds an honorary doctorate in humanities from Vincennes University. Payton holds the keys to many cities throughout the United States and is still continually active in the community and her career.

Voorhees has already begun accepting donations for the campaign via mail and online at our website www.voorhees.edu/dayofgiving. To view this live event, please subscribe to, like, and follow our YouTube channel @VoorheesCollege1897 and our Facebook page @Voorhees College.
