U.S. Commerce Secretary Lauds Morehouse’s Entrepreneurship Center

U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke at Morehouse College last month.

Entrepreneurship, particularly how it is being taught at Morehouse College, is one of the keys to jumpstarting the American economy and job growth, U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke told a group of Morehouse business students and professors recently.

“Teaching entrepreneurship isn’t going to just benefit the students here at Morehouse,” said Secretary Locke. “It’s going to radiate outward to create positive social change in African American communities because there is no better vehicle for job creation in America than entrepreneurship.”

Locke’s stop at Morehouse was part of the Obama Administration’s efforts to tout the success of last year’s Recovery Act.
