Rod Aycox and Lamell McMorris Respond to Tragedy in Charleston by Donating $1 Million to Civil Rights and Religious Groups

WASHINGTON, June 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Rod Aycox, CEO of Select Management Resources, has partnered with Lamell McMorris, CEO of Perennial Strategy Group and board trustee to national civil rights organizations including the NAACP, the National Urban League, the National Action Network, and the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, to provide a total of $1 million in gifts to organizations that fight discrimination and that increase tolerance. The announcement was made in the wake of the tragic shooting deaths of nine people at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C.

Through these gifts, Aycox and McMorris are proud to support a number of local and national organizations including the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, the Anti-Defamation League, the Conference of National Black Churches, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Martin Luther King, Jr. International Chapel at Morehouse College, the NAACP, the National Action Network, the National Council of La Raza, the National Urban League, and the Rainbow PUSH Coalition.

"Our hearts are heavy this week after the senseless murders at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. In a time like this, we have offered our prayers, but we know we have to do more - we have to take action and speak out," said Aycox. McMorris continued, "As Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. explained, 'The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.' Mr. Aycox and I hope that by offering our support to the Church and to organizations that help to fight intolerance and hatred in the community and help to improve the quality of life for everyone around our country, we can help prevent tragedies like this from happening in the future."

By partnering with these civil rights and religious organizations, Aycox and McMorris have chosen to support programs that help improve the underlying conditions that lead to violence, namely a lack of economic opportunity and ignorance. The organizations these gifts support are leaders in Charleston and across the country in helping to foster empowerment, financial literacy, cross cultural communication, and equal opportunity for all.

Rod Aycox Teams Up With Atlantic Fuel Cell, LLC to Explore the Use of Fuel Cell Technology

Michael Faraday (1791-1867) first discovered that by passing an electric current through a liquid (such as water) gasses were produced that were the basic constituents of the liquid. An English lawyer and sometime physicist named William Robert Grove (1811- 1896) wondered whether the reverse might be made to happen. If the two gasses (hydrogen and oxygen) could be combined back together maybe an electric current could be generated. In a letter to Faraday in 1842 he described an arrangement he had used to produce electric current from a chemical reaction and called it the "gas battery". We now know of it as the fuel cell. The fuel cell languished for about 110 years until a very efficient power source was needed by NASA to power space craft in the late 1950's.

Atlantic Fuel Cell, LLC, officially formed in 2003, is pioneering the expansion of this amazing technology. The Atlantic Fuel Cell HFC1201 is one of the first available low cost completely assembled and tested single cell PEM direct hydrogen fuel cells. Multiple HFC1201 cells can be wired in series for higher output voltages.
Atlantic specializes in Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells which are suitable for the widest range of applications from sub-watt fuel cells for cell phones to multi kilo-Watt machines for powering things such as telecom cell sites, homes and businesses.

Rod Aycox is working with Atlanta Fuel Cell, LLC with plans to use the environmentally friendly technology in his businesses. "I am very excited about the possibilities of this new cost and energy efficient technology," said Mr. Aycox. "More importantly, fuel cells don't require disposal and run on water, which is better for the environment."
