White, Alcornite and Vice-President, North America Operations Management-Schools at Sodexo where he leads partnerships and teams in the North Atlantic Region of the United States. John also leads and directs all business aspects within the Mid-Atlantic Region including account operations, growth, retention, people development and training, financial growth, and accountability to deliver on Sodexo Quality of Life positioning. He represents Sodexo in partnering with and developing strong commercial relationships with local communities in the Mid-Atlantic Region to develop business outcomes and promote success in Sodexo’s corporate responsibility and sustainability programs. John also recently served as National Chairman of Sodexo’s African American Leadership Forum.
John was educated in Coahoma and Leflore Counties in the Mississippi Delta. In the Fall of 1981, he matriculated on a full scholarship at Alcorn State University as a 2nd generation and legacy student. While at Alcorn John was a member of the Sounds-of-Dynamite Marching Band. In the Fall of 1982, he joined Alpha Zeta Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Theta Fraternity, Inc., and was later elected president. John graduated cum laude in the Spring of 1985 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutrition and Institution Management.
After graduation John joined Marriott Management Services in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland as a Food Production Manager at John Hopkins Hospital. In 1986 he relocated to North Carolina to become Retail Operations Manager for North Carolina Baptist Hospitals. In 1991 John moved to Louisville, Kentucky to continue his professional career. While there he was President of the Louisville Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma, Alumni Advisor to several collegiate chapters, served on several boards of directors, and was Chair of The SLICE, an Official Kentucky Derby Festival Event. In 2009 John was promoted and relocated to Detroit, Michigan and returned to Louisville after being promoted to Vice President with Sodexo.
John serves on the General Board for Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., and has served as Director of Social Action, Advisor and Assistant to many Fraternity Presidents, Director of Sigma Leadership Academy, and currently Chairman of Sigma Executive Leadership Council.
John is the father of one daughter, Nila, a senior at Alcorn State University, and believes that the work he does every day – is all about legacy building.
In January 2021 Rev. Raphael G. Warnock. Ph.D. became the State of Georgia's first Black Senator and the first Black Democrat to represent a southern state in the U.S. Senate. He is also the Senior Pastor of the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. Under Rev. Warnock’s leadership, more than 5,000 new members have joined Ebenezer, enhancing the Church’s legacy of social activism with both spiritual and numerical growth. He sees the whole community as his parish, and accordingly, he has defended voting rights in his own State of Georgia and in the State of Louisiana.
Rev. Warnock has also taken on the contradictions in our criminal justice system through his preaching and fierce public advocacy. He, along with many others, stood up for Troy Davis, Trayvon Martin, and Genarlow Wilson. Rev. Warnock’s bold and visionary leadership has been further demonstrated through his public policy work with The National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS and his ongoing efforts to provide tuition support for young people pursuing post-secondary education.
In 1991, he graduated cum laude from Morehouse College, with a B.A. degree in psychology. He also holds a Master of Divinity, a Master of Philosophy, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Union Theological Seminary, New York City. He is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., the 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc., and a Lifetime Member of the NAACP. Rev. Warnock is a Senior Fellow at Auburn Theological Seminary, an Aspen Institute Ascend Fellow, and formerly served as Chairman of the Board of the New Georgia Project, an organization that has registered 400,000 new voters in the State of Georgia.
Among other honors, Rev. Warnock has been recognized as one of “Atlanta’s 55 Most Powerful” by Atlanta magazine and one of the “20 Top African American Church Leaders” by TheRoot.com. His work has been featured on CNN, the CBS Evening News, the Huffington Post, and in the Atlanta Journal and Constitution, which hailed him “a leader among Atlanta – and national – clergy, a fitting heir to the mantle once worn by The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” At President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama’s request, Rev. Warnock delivered the closing prayer at the 2013 Inaugural Prayer Service and delivered the sermon for the Annual White House Prayer breakfast in March 2016. His first book is entitled, The Divided Mind of the Black Church; Theology, Piety & Public Witness (NYU Press, 2014)
