Dillard University National Alumni Association-Houston Chapter
The Dillard University National Alumni Association-Houston Chapter presents the inaugural Blue & White Scholarship luncheon to support local high school students seeking higher education at Dillard University – a member of Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s). Today, HBCU’s faces an all-time low enrollment rate due to the lack of funding. According to the Charlotte Post of Charlotte, NC reported in July 2014 “only 10% of HBCU Alumni give back” to their college or university. The Charlotte Post goes on to say that within the last 20 years five HBCU’s had to shut down or deal with accreditation issues.” The Dillard University National Alumni Association-Houston Chapter strives to become the catalyst to reverse these staggering HBCU statistics; giving high school students of the Houston community the opportunity to have an HBUC experience they can cherish and pass on to generations to come. We ask all local alums as well as those of the education and professional community of Houston to join us on Saturday, April 23, 2016 during our inaugural Blue and White Luncheon in this endeavor to pave the way for future Dillard University Alums.
