Press Release Body = CHEYNEY, PA 19 April 2007 - America's youngest African-American CEO of a publicly-traded company, Ephren W. Taylor II will donate a significant gift to Cheyney University of Pennsylvania. The event will be held on Friday, April 20, at Cheyney's Graduate School site, 701 Market Street (Mellon Building) third floor. Taylor will be presenting a $350,000 check to create a specialized curriculum and academy for high school and college-aged aspiring entrepreneurs, named in his honor. He will also describe how the Academy will address and help ease the current violence in Philadelphia. The Ephren W. Taylor II Entrepreneurial Academy is scheduled to open in July 2007.

He is the CEO of City Capital Corporation (OTCBB:CCCN), which creates economically-sound, socially-conscious investments that give back to local communities, and create affordable homes for working class families nationwide. His companies currently manage over $150 million in assets and projects.
"The American service industry calls upon higher education to create programs that spark the spirit of enterprise. The parallel development of an international program and the Ephren W. Taylor II Entrepreneurial Academy at Cheyney University will make our graduates an invaluable human capital resource for both developed and developing countries," said M. Starita Boyce, Ph.D., vice president for Institutional Advancement at Cheyney. "There is no better place for learning than Cheyney University, the alma mater of giants such as Edward R. Bradley, Octavius Catto, Rebecca Cole, M.D. and James R. Dumpson, Ph.D."
Recently, Taylor launched the Urban Wealth Tour to promote economic empowerment, affordable housing and entrepreneurship in urban communities. During his visit to Pennsylvania, he will speak at local high schools, address private investors, educators, non profit organizations, religious and government leaders to encourage positive change in their urban communities. He will also make another presentation to Tom Joyner at the Cheyney University "Lunch with a Purpose," to be held at noon on April 20 at the Pyramid Club.
"It is a great honor to be a catalyst for student entrepreneurs and to transfer the advantages that I had growing up to our youth. It is particularly gratifying to partner with a Historically Black College, specifically America's oldest HBCU. We intend to use the Ephren W. Taylor II Entrepreneurial Academy at Cheyney as an international model for future partnerships in higher education," asserts Taylor.
Widely respected as a true "Wealth Engineer", Taylor utilizes his innovative model to raise capital and enhance his clients' ability to develop and manage wealth.
