“Through this event, we have opened doors to success and nurtured the dreams of countless young individuals. It is truly an honor to support their educational journey.”
The Black College Expo attracted many students, parents, and educators who were eager to engage with various colleges and universities and explore scholarship options and educational workshops. Dr. Teresa Price, Founder of the National College Resources Foundation – Black College Expo, expressed her enthusiasm for the event and its impact on the community.
“This is a transformative event that provides space for students to connect directly with colleges and explore the vast opportunities available to them,” said Dr. Price. “We are grateful to Senator Parker for his unwavering commitment to creating a bright future for our youth and promoting
