Fisk President Hazel R. O’Leary said Knowles’ strategic skills and worldview would compliment those of concurrent board members.
Knowles first honed those skills at Fisk while working toward both a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration.
“Fisk offered me more than just a first class education. It reinforced the belief that if you maintain a commitment to excellence, work hard and never give up on your dreams; you can be and do anything that you want, no matter where you start out.”
Knowles’ credits include putting together the recording group Destiny’s Child and launching and managing the solo careers of its members, Michelle Williams, Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé, who was crowned Billboard‘s Top Female Artist of the Decade.
