Episode 6: Escaping Poverty Through Education with Dr. Madie Mosely
In our sixth episode, Nick Stonestreet, CEO of Ronald Blue Trust, and Dr. Michael Patterson, founder of Be a Peace Maker, host a powerful and personal interview in honor of Women’s History Month with Dr. Madie Mosely, an educator who became the president of Florida A&M University and who is making a difference in poor communities. She tells the heartbreaking story of how the painful segregation experiences of her mother inspired her family to get out of poverty through education, with the result of her family members attaining over 100 professional degrees. She now works to give others the same access to educational opportunities that changed her life.
Dr. Madie Mosley has worked in the fields of education, social work, counseling, research, coaching, and executive civic leadership for over 45 years. She holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology/social work, a master’s in guidance and counseling (Florida A&M University), and a doctorate in interpersonal communication and organizational communication (Florida State University).
She has served as an administrator and academician at all levels of the educational spectrum. Throughout her professional career, she has engaged in public service as a volunteer for drives and outreach programs. Dr. Mosley retired from her professional career after serving as the ninth First Lady of Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) at her alma mater. She is a board member, mentor, civic leader, and founder of a non-profit charitable organization. However, her true joy in life is being a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
“Education gave us the opportunity to provide for our mother, set the stage for our own children… and start a legacy movement.”
-Dr. Madie Mosely
