Black History Month event rescheduled for Friday, February 26

While our original Black History Month event had to be postponed due to Philadelphia's record snow fall, I have some great news -- we have officially rescheduled! The celebration will now be held next Friday, Feb. 26, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in College Hall, Room 51.

To refresh your memory:

The event, "Victory: A Celebration of African-American Achievements," is a collaborative effort between Peirce students, faculty, and staff that seeks to recognize African-American leaders, educators, entrepreneurs, inventors, politicians, musicians, performers, etc. A special panel presentation will feature two local entrepreneurs, an executive transportation officer, and a current doctoral student.

Juanita Wooten, Program Manager for Student Services and the Black History Month Committee, has been working hard with her team to reschedule this fantastic event, so don't miss it!

Remember -- all are encouraged to attend, but you MUST register! To do so, contact the Walker Center (2nd floor, Alumni Hall) at 888.GO.PEIRCE, ext. 9251, or Students may also log on to the portal and click on the Student Services tab for more information.

Now let's cross our fingers and hope the weather cooperates this time around!
