SCLC Moves Forward With New Leader

ATLANTA - The Southern Christian Leadership Conference has elected a new president. The Rev. Howard Creecy Jr. was elected at the group's annual chapters and affiliates meeting. At the meeting in Kenner, La., the SCLC also certified 30 new chapters across the South, raising the total number of chapters to 110.

Creecy is pastor of Olivet Church in Fayetteville, Ga., and a native of Mobile, Ala. He also served as the SCLC's interim president.

The SCLC was co-founded in 1957 by Martin Luther King, Jr.. Over the weekend, his nephew, Isaac Ferris Jr., was elected vice president of the organization. Martin Luther King III, a former SCLC president, is also on its board of directors.
