This is my University – This is my Promise
The Harriet Barfield Black Society (HBBS) is a distinct Fort Valley State University Alumni group. It is named in honor of Mrs. Harriet Barfield Black, the first person to receive a degree from Fort Valley State College in 1941 and a major financial supporter for more than 15 consecutive years. The HBBS is open to all alumni concerned about the future and well being of their alma mater and who desire to demonstrate their appreciation for their university over time. To join the HBBS, alumni are asked to promise to make a gift of some amount each and every year. It is that easy!
