’99, chairman of the NAACP, will deliver the address to graduates June 15 at Kellogg’s 2012 Convocation ceremony.
Brock is a recognized civic leader and advocate and the recipient of numerous healthcare, community service and leadership awards. “Roslyn is a true Kellogg leader who has answered the call of service and duty to advance progress in society,” Dean Sally Blount said.
Brock made history in February 2010 when she was unanimously elected the 14th chairman of the national board of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. She is the youngest person and fourth woman to hold this position.
Brock has been active in the NAACP for more than 25 years and has secured millions of dollars to support the organization’s programs. She is the creator of the NAACP Leadership 500 Summit, designed to recruit, train and retain a new generation of civil rights leaders to the NAACP.
Brock is also vice president, advocacy and government relations for Bon Secours Health System, Inc. Prior to Bon Secours, Brock worked for 10 years in health programs at the W. K. Kellogg Foundation. Further reading:
