Voorhees College recently received a donation of $150 from the A.R. Johnson High School Class of 1988 in memory of the late Horace Lamback, a 1971 Voorhees graduate, who was a former principal of  Johnson high. 

Brent Winner, a 1988 class member said, Lamback impacted him and his classmates’ lives and they were grateful they had a chance to know him. “Our graduating class chose to take up a collection in Horace’s memory for Voorhees College because we could tell he made a big impact on the institution as well.”

President W. Franklin Evans expresses his concern to continue raising additional funds to support his vision of making Voorhees the premiere institution. “It is people like the class of 1988, who make a difference in the lives of students and help move Voorhees forward,” said President Evans. “Our alumni leave their marks by engaging the current students and working to advance the institution.” 

Dorothy Patterson, director of alumni relations, worked with Lamback for more than 20 years since his days as a student. Patterson said, “Lamback was a big supporter of Voorhees College and was heavily involved with the National Alumni Association and the Augusta Alumni Chapter. He served as a role model within the community.”
