Essence magazine’s 2nd Annual Evening of Excellence held during the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Conference was a night filled with fun and celebrity. Hosted by CNN’s Richelle Carey, Essence presented awards to Rodney Peete and Holly Robinson Peete, Judge Glenda Hatchett, Sheila Johnson, and Warrick Dunn. The ceremony was capped off by a performance by En Vogue, and an after party with D Nice.
Alumni Roundup hit the road with Ford and the Tom Joyner Foundation down to Atlanta to promote the opportunity for the HBCU family to support our schools without breaking out our checkbooks. The Ford Motor Company is pledging up to $250,000 in scholarship support for HBCU students which YOU can claim for your school by simply test driving one of their vehicles. Be sure to log into www.Drive4HBCU.com, register, print the form and go to ANY Ford dealer by January 4th.
Don’t leave YOUR student’s behind.
