In addition to awarding students, distinguished alumni, Pastor Suzette Caldwell, Jeramaine Netherly, and Judson Robinson III, were recognized for having demonstrated exceptional leadership, community service and commitment to student success. This success of this program has allowed several UH students to look forward to studying abroad in Ghana this summer. Mayor Sylvester Turner brought words of wisdom as keynote speaker.
