Fellow Foxes,

I like to give thanks to God for showering us abundantly with his blessings throughout the years CWA-AA, USA has existed. It is with great delight and humility that I accept the role of incoming Chairman

of this Association. With all the opportunities and challenges that come with my acceptance to serve us all, I am of the belief that this journey will not be a smooth one if the leadership team is to walk it alone. Based on the outpouring of support received during the revitalization process, I am confident Foxes near and far will continue working towards positive outcomes.

Let me take this opportunity to acknowledge the tremendous and strategic initiatives that were undertaken by the previous leaderships. Indeed, you are an inspiration, and an avenue for us to continue doing the magnificent work that you began. I am certain, that the incoming leadership team will work assiduously to exceed the expectations of our alumni community.

To our Alums, I ask that you give generously to support various projects aimed at making strategic improvements at the College of West Africa, and to leverage CWA-AA, USA domestic and global standing to assist when you need us. The leadership team will be reaching out shortly to class/chapter leaders, the alumni body, to discuss important pending and future projects, that require our collective financial support to see them to fruition. We value your opinions, and believe that there is more that unites us than divides us.

Thank you all, God bless you, God bless CWA-AA, USA, God bless Liberia!


Yours sincerely,

Richard Miller, MBA, MS, ‘86

National Chair, CWA-AA, USA INC.
