With this in mind, The HBCU Times will be hosting our Inaugural Awards Celebration and Gala on Saturday, June 13, 2020. The HBCU Times Group will host this event at the Westin Hotel in downtown Charlotte, North Carolina.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1579014443374{padding-top: -20px !important;}”]The net proceeds from the gala will go towards providing students with scholarship support to complete undergraduate studies at Historically Black Colleges and Universities(HBCUs). Given the average 6 year graduation rate for students enrolled at HBCUs is approximately 35 percent, there is a critical need to provide additional financial support to assist students in their efforts to graduate. Although finances may not be the only barrier contributing to the graduation rate of students at HBCUs, it is certainly documented as one of the main reasons students do not successfully graduate. Thus, the HBCU Times Group is establishing a scholarship fund to assist students with financial support to complete their degrees.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1579014490955{padding-top: -20px !important;}”]Despite the less than stellar graduation rate for HBCUS, HBCUs have been at the forefront of producing exemplary alumni in every profession.

Even though HBCUs have traditionally been underfunded and under-resourced, HBCUs have continuously produced exceptional graduates. [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]In fact, the HBCU Times Magazine was created to tell many of the positive stories about HBCUs and their amazing alumni. In the three year tenure of the HBCU Times Magazines, we have shared powerful stories about the HBCU Community to over 200,000 readers. We have featured stories on U.S Congressman James Clyburn, the 2017 MISS USA, Kara McCullough, Benedict College’s First African American Female President, Dr. Roslyn Clark Artis, Philanthropist, Robert Johnson, and many other major influencers.

The HBCU Times Awards Ceremony and Gala will help us to continue to tell positive HBCU stories while also celebrating excellence within the HBCU Community and raising funds for the next generation of HBCU leaders. By supporting this event, you can play a critical role in helping the HBCU Times Group to establish a scholarship fund to enhance the graduation rate and success of future doctors, lawyers, engineers, social workers, accountants and teachers.
