ferrell02.jpg (TALLAHASSEE, Fla.) – Reverend Ernest Ferrell will keynote Florida A&M University’s (FAMU) Martin Luther King Convocation scheduled for Thursday, January 15, at 10:10 a.m. in Gaither Gymnasium. The general public is invited to attend.
Ferrell is the president of the Tallahassee Urban League and serves as pastor of Saint Mary Primitive Baptist Church in Tallahassee.
His church leadership began when he was a youth singing in the choir, the Lincoln High School Chorus, and a gospel group named the Walls of Zion.  In 1972, he produced a recording album titled “The Ferrells in Concert,” with his brother and sister.  The album was waxed in Nashville, Tennessee.  From singing, he progressed to the church pulpit as a young gospel preacher.  He became an ordained preacher, and in 1969, he was installed as pastor of his first church, Galilee Primitive Baptist Church.
Ferrell has been the recipient of numerous awards including the prestigious Martin Luther King, Jr. Leadership Award from FAMU, the City of Tallahassee Reginald L. Rolle Minority Business Leadership Award, the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Citizen of the Year Award, and was nominated by the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce for the Distinguished Citizen Service Award.  Also, the City of Tallahassee presented him with the Reverend Ernest Ferrell Day Proclamation Award.  He received the Florida House of Representatives Leadership Award and many others. Reverend Ferrell is married to the former Mary E. Richardson.
