Peirce celebrates Black History Month with a special panel discussion this Friday

Commemorate Black History Month with Peirce! Join us for a special panel presentation this Friday, "Victory: A Celebration of African-American Achievements." Juanita Wooten, Program Manger for Student Services and the Black History Month Committee, has put the event together. She shared the details in a note to the Peirce community:
Hello Peirce!

In celebration of Black History Month, I'd like to invite all who are interested to join the Black History Month Committee on Friday, Feb. 5, 2010, from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. for "Victory: A Celebration of African-American Achievements."

The program is a collaborative effort by Peirce students, faculty and staff that seeks to recognize African-American leaders, educators, entrepreneurs, inventors, politicians, musicians, performers, etc.

Come out for an insightful panel presentation featuring a local entrepreneur, education administrator, doctoral student and more, and enjoy light refreshments. The event will be held in College Hall, Room 51.
