Black History Month Event Raises $2,000

Posted on Wednesday, February 16, 2005

More than 200 people attended Chesapeake College’s second Black History Month Breakfast on Saturday, Feb. 5 in the Rufus and Loraine H. Todd Performing Arts Center.

The breakfast, sponsored by the Multicultural Affairs Committee, raised $2,000 for the J.C. Gibson Memorial Book Scholarship Fund. Director of Multicultural Affairs Dana Bowser said this year’s event surpassed last year’s highly successful breakfast.

"The breakfast was so successful this year that we reached our attendance capacity. This has become our most important fundraiser for the J.C. Gibson Scholarship Fund," said Bowser. "This money will help many students purchase the books they need for classes next year."

Dr. Thelma Thompson, President of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, delivered the keynote address "Shaping the Next Generation for Achievement".
