HBCU Tour 2017

Many thanks to College Counselors, Cherlisa Richardson and Tuesday Anderson, who took over forty students from Lawrence Central and Lawrence North to the eastern United States over Spring Break on a college tour of multiple Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU). School visited included: North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University, Hampton University, Bennett College, Norfolk State University, Winston Salem State University, & Howard University.

Students also had some time to tour Washington DC.  Cost of this trip was partially underwritten by the Lawrence Township School Foundation. Students learned a great deal, and expanded their knowledge of the wealth of post-secondary opportunities available to Lawrence Township graduates. Below are some reflections from students on the trip:
“I like how they (NC A&M) have more African American history and how they celebrate the history.” MD Summon, Lawrence North
“I’ve changed my mind about this school (Norfolk State University). I definitely like this one more than I thought I would. It has moved up on my list.” Aniyah Scott, Lawrence North
“I really like the sisterhood at Bennett. I like that it is mall and I love the motto ‘Once a Bell, Always a Belle.’” Chelsea Fitzpatrick, Lawrence Central
