Benedict College Remembers Marlon Black as a Talented Football Player

The Benedict College family is heartbroken about the untimely death of Mr. Marlon Black. Unfortunately, Mr. Black succumbed to his injuries after an early Sunday morning car accident on I-77.

Please join Benedict College in praying for its fallen Tiger, Mr. Black, #55. He was an offensive tackle on the Benedict College Football team.  The sophomore transfer student from Tennessee State University was majoring in sport management. He played in the successful scrimmage game against North Greenville University in March.

Grief counseling and support are being offered to members of the football team and the student body beginning today and throughout the week.
