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

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. 11, 2011, from 6 to 8 p.m. for "Victory: A Celebration of African-American Achievements." The event will include a panel discussion featuring industry leaders representing the arts, business, education, and finance.

Under the guidance of Juanita Wooten, Program Manager for Student Services, and the Black History Month Committee, the program seeks to recognize African-American leaders, educators, entrepreneurs, inventors, politicians, musicians, and performers. The event will be held in College Hall, Room 51, and light refreshments will be served.

All are encouraged to attend, but you must register before Friday! To do so, you can visit the Walker Center (2nd floor, Alumni Hall), or contact us at 888.GO.PEIRCE, ext. 9251, or We can also respond to your questions if you leave a comment below.
