Teaching Ourselves History

Teaching Ourselves History

Central Ky started black history month by quizzing NSBE Jr on their knowledge of MLK Jr. We used this as a segue to discuss monumental icons of our culture. NSBE Jr left with homework to create a quiz. They returned with questions from Harriet Tubman to Michael Jordan’s 6 championships.

A Walk for Education

The Central Kentucky Professional Chapter hosted its Third Annual A Walk for Education on Saturday, Oct. 19 in Lexington, KY. The chapter was joined by Greater Lexington NSBE Jr., the University of Kentucky NSBE Chapter as well as members of various NPHC organizations. Although it was a rainy and cold day, the event still continued with huge success. Over 80 bags were passed out that included college admittance information for most of the major colleges and universities in the state, “Make It At Home” hands on activity instructions as well as information on the local NSBE Chapter. All those involved had a great time and hope to make the event even bigger next year.

 

Special thanks to Kentucky State University, University of Kentucky, and Eastern Kentucky University!!

Rattler says that only 2% of women and minority owned businesses break the $1 million revenue mark. Of those, 56% of their sales come from corporate clients. The trouble is, most women don’t know how to make a winning approach to earn or retain the business….Read more at http://www.blackenterprise.com/small-business/attracting-and-retaining-corporate-contracts/.
