CHAPTER UPDATES
Register your HBCU for the
Monte Carlo Scholarship Award

Deadline -Wednesday, January 8, 2020

The Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Committee is excited to begin planning for our magnificent Monte Carlo 2020! The evening will be a wonderful time to fellowship with our guests and support our HBCUs. 

The 2020 Monte Carlo HBCU Committee would like to request that you identify the HBCU that you attended. Guests will have an opportunity to place either a voucher or “funny” money in the HBCU box of their choice. The 3 schools with the most money at the end of the night, will receive scholarships from the chapter.   If you attended Spelman College, North Carolina A&T State University, or Norfolk State University, these schools were recipients from our Monte Carlo 2018 and are out of rotation for Monte Carlo 2020 and will return in 2022. 

Please provide your HBCU information by email to Link Natasha Rountree, n_rountree@yahoo.com (n “underscore” rountree@yahoo.com ) by January 8, 2020. You will also have an opportunity to provide your HBCU at the January Chapter meeting.
