Mission: CTCAAI was founded in 1954 by Mr. Austin C. Moore and several other Tougalooians. The basic focus was to create a "Place" where Tougalooians could meet and discuss issues that affected them on a daily basis. From this focus point the need to broaden the chapter's outlook brought about changes, which included 1. Raising funds to send back to Tougaloo College. 2. To develop and implement a recruiting program that would encourage both local and nationwide high school seniors to select Tougaloo College as the place to enroll and gain an "Excellent Education".
