Edward Waters College President Nathaniel Glover has been selected as a finalist for this year’s HBCU Awards, presented by national news website HBCU Digest. The HBCU Awards celebrates the achievements of historically black colleges and universities throughout the United States and is the first and only event to recognize the influence and impact of HBCUs on American culture.
President Nathaniel Glover is one of four nominated for “Best Male HBCU President of the Year.” According to HBCU Digest, nominees were selected based on their “…impact and achievement in the fields of leadership, arts, athletics, research and community engagement in the previous academic year.”
The nominations were submitted and reviewed by a host of individuals close to the HBCU community including students, alumni, PR officials and journalists covering historically black colleges and universities. Votes are counted in each category via secret ballot of 13 HBCU presidents and the Center for HBCU Media Advocacy (CHMA) board members.
HBCU Digest is billed as the “national news resource of record for historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).” The winners in various categories will be announced at the HBCU Digest’s HBCU Awards event set for July 11 at Dillard University in New Orleans.
