Joyce-Gillespie-Harrington Educational and Charitable Foundation Talk Scholarships at 4th Annual Loudoun HBCU Fair

In our efforts to always uplift our fraternity’s aim of scholarship, The Joyce-Gillespie-Harrington (JGH) Educational and Charitable Foundation of the Zeta Upsilon Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha participated in the 4th annual a Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Fair in Loudoun County on Thursday, October 25, 2018 at Tuscarora High School in Leesburg, Virginia. The event, which featured our Alpha brother, Dr. Makola Abdullah, President of Virginia State University as the keynote speaker, connected area students with HBCUs and enlightened them about educational opportunities, resources, and the college experience at these institutions.

We joined HBCUs from Delaware to Florida, college and career preparation organizations and other black Greek letter organizations to discuss our JGH Jewel scholarship opportunity and process with college bound high school seniors and our foundation’s programs with interested students and parents.

JGH Foundation President Ron Hamm and Zeta Upsilon Lambda Chapter President James Graham represented the foundation and the fraternity at the HBCU Fair.  Ron stated, “We were honored to have the chance to share our scholarship opportunity with so many wonderful students and parents while witnessing the development of a connection between minority students at surrounding high schools and HBCUs.”

Applications for the JGH 2019 Jewel Scholarship awards will be accepted from December 1, 2018 through March 2, 2019.  Application requirements also are available on the website.
