Livingstone College Honors Convocation

 

Scholarship

Chapter Members and student scholarship recipients from Winston-Salem

On Wednesday morning, April 19th, Livingstone College recognized students during the Dr. Samuel Edward Duncan Honors Convocation in Varick Auditorium. The theme was “Academic Excellence: The Foundation for the Career Journey Ahead.”

The speaker for the occasion was Mr. Nicholas Perkins, Chairman, President and CEO Perkins Management Services, Inc. His comments were excellent. He talked about the cost of freedom, those that came before who paid the price of what students are benefiting from now and that the cost is more than their tuition. He used scripture references to drive home his points and his personal journey as an young entrepreneur.

Here he is (above) receiving special recognition for his achievements and community service from Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins. Perkins has made a $400,000 contribution to Livingstone toward a new cafeteria. His food service company runs the cafeteria at Livingstone.

He walks the talk!

Please print these two forms then fill them out and return them to the school by U.S. mail (Livingstone College, Office of the Success Center, 701 W. Monroe Street, Salisbury, NC 28144) or fax to 704-216-6932, attn: Sylvester Kyles. Please return these by January 4, 2016 so we can begin matching mentor’s and mentees at the start of the semester.

Please share this information with anyone interested in being a mentor. Now is the time for Alumni to step up and give a helping hand to Livingstone students.

In order to provide an opportune time for mentors and mentees to meet face-to-face with each other, there will be a luncheon held in the event center on campus immediately following the Founder’s Day Convocation on February 11, 2016.

If possible, please plan now to attend.
