Howard P.R.I.D.E.’s Third Annual Black Male Summit Celebrates Student Success, Boosts Completion
Columbia, Maryland – Hosted by Howard Community College’s (HCC) Howard P.R.I.D.E. program, the third annual Black Male Summit will take place Thursday, September 13, 2018, at 12 p.m. in the college’s Smith Theatre, located within the Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center.
This event will not only help usher in the 2018-2019 academic year for P.R.I.D.E. program participants, but will also celebrate the earned accomplishments of the previous academic year while setting the tone for what is on the horizon. The summit will also support creating pathways for men of color to connect and build relationships with faculty, staff, and other students.
“This summit sets the tone for students by establishing where their ‘community of support’ is, and how the entire college is here to champion our students to success,” said Geoffrey Colbert, associate director of Howard P.R.I.D.E.
During this event, faculty, staff, and students are welcomed by inspiring keynote speakers, including Keenan Harrell, community relations coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens, and former NFL wide-receiver Santana Moss. The summit will be followed by a private lunch with students and other participants.
The event is free and open to the public.
