State Representative Traci Davis hosted her third Historically Black Colleges and University (HBCU) College Fair last weekend at the Jessie Ball DuPont Building. HBCUs promoted their college history, mission and academic curriculum and offered on the spot scholasticism. In addition, various organizations were also in the building to mentor and motivate the hundreds of students in attendance.
More than three hundred students and parents participated in the fair that included workshops focused on college readiness and career success.
According to Pew Research Center, enrollment at HBCUs has risen over the past several decades producing 23% of all African American graduates.
