Dr. Michael J. Sorrell, Paul Quinn College

CEO 3078

Named one of Fortune magazine’s World’s 50 Greatest Leaders in 2018, Michael Sorrell led a turn-around when he became president of Paul Quinn College in 2007.

Sorrell says Paul Quinn’s urban workforce-college model is designed to expand far beyond the southern Dallas campus.
