Charles Belk

Los Angeles, Calif - August 1, 2007 - Charles Belk has been named to a two year term on the Board of Directors of the University of Southern California Black Alumni Association. Charged with the primary task of raising money for scholarships, Charles Belk's involvement with the BAA continues his 25 year relationship with the university dating back to his sophomore year in college when he was first selected as a Resident Advisor.

Currently, president and chief branding officer of Charles Belk Management, but undoubtedly a USC Trojan for life, Charles Belk's commitment to the university as a student included serving as president, vice president and treasurer of the USC chapter of NSBE, a Student Senator, a Trojan Knight, and as a member of the Engineering Student Council, the Black Executive Leadership Council, Blue Key, Skull & Dagger and the the Senior Development Committee. Post graduation, Charles Belk continued to be involved with USC from 3,000 miles away, as a member of the Atlanta Alumni Chapter and the South Florida Alumni Chapter; meeting with prospective and incoming students; and placing USC student in summer internships. A relocation back to southern California earlier this year allowed Charles Belk to re-establish a direct involvement with the university, most recently serving as the key note speaker at the USC School of Engineering Center for Engineering Diversity's 2007 Awards Banquet.

Only a few months back in Los Angeles, Charles Belk, an avid community volunteer, serves on the 2007 Silver Lake Film Festival Board of Directors and the Chaka Khan Foundation Gala Committee, and is a member of the Los Angeles chapters of the National Black MBA Association and The Recording Academy (Grammy Awards). During his 12 years in Atlanta (prior to relocating back to LA), he was on the board of directors of Georgia Court Appointed Special Advocates (GA CASA), Hughes Spaulding Childrens Hospital, Jomandi Theater, House of Love For the Homeless, and the Cobb County Transit Advisory Committee.

"Each day, I wake up feeling blessed that God has given me yet another chance, another day, to experience life to its fullest. Being involved and giving back is the least I can do, considering all the things that people have given me and done for me," Belk responded when asked how does he finds the time to be so involved.

With a primary mission of providing scholarship funds to support the financial needs of African American students attending USC, the Black Alumni Association has successfully reached out to African American students to provide financial aid and mentoring support for over 30 years. The USC BAA was founded in 1976 by civil rights activist, the late Dr. Rev. Thomas Kilgore, Jr.
