A few years ago, Matthew A. Pigatt stepped into Morehouse College on academic probation, and today, he is known for being a passionate author, devoted activist, leadership coach, and award-winning researcher whose work at globally prestigious universities contributed to the topic of high-achieving black men at a national level.
Being the first member of his family to go away to college, Matthew was determined to give it his all. He secured over $100k in funding at Morehouse through competitive scholarships, fellowships, high-level internships, and international research training programs. He graduated magna cum laude from Morehouse with a B.A. in African American Studies and Psychology. Matthew has been an active community member during his college years and after.
Matthew serves as a keynote speaker and professional trainer. He conducts group coaching programs and consults with local community leaders. His products help young adults realize their purpose, become scholarship-winning professionals, and train aspiring leaders to be the power players their community needs.
Matthew’s work aims at changing the lives of students who are in the same shoes as he was in during his youth and is dedicated to motivating them out of their comfort zones so that they can become whom they are meant to be and lead others with confidence in the coming years.
