Curtis Symonds | HBCU’s have been apart of my life for more than 40+ year’s. My mother and father not only were graduates of an HBCU but were educators at Central State University in Xenia, Ohio. It took me until my early adulthood to appreciate the rich heritage, legacies and the impact these great American institutions have played a major role socially, politically and financially. With continued support from our distinguished alumni worldwide and corporate givings, we will continue to celebrate the endless of possibilities and achievements as it relates to our future leaders to aid in the advancement of our society.
