Closer Look: Silas Craft Collegians Dinner
The 22nd annual Silas Craft Collegians Dinner was different this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the spirit remained the same. The event, which supports Howard Community College’s Silas Craft Collegians Program, raised over $38,000 to support the Silas Craft Collegians Endowment and program.
On March 8, 2021, Hunan Manor Restaurant closed to the public to generously prepare and distribute over 420 "Craft" Bento Box Dinners. Delivered curbside, participants received their dinners in reusable bags, including custom fortune cookies thanking donors and sharing facts about the Silas Craft Collegians Program.
At 6:30 p.m. that evening, a video highlighting the Silas Craft Collegians program premiered, featuring special guests, current students, and alumni.
The Silas Craft Collegians Program is an academic leadership learning community for recent high school graduates who wish to maximize their academic achievement through personal coaching, academic support, and smaller class sizes, while connecting with a group of like-minded peers. The event raises funds that support students through scholarships and program funding.
