Young men get sage advice about showing determination at annual Scholars Holiday Breakfast
On Dec. 23, about 70 Delta Eta Boule Scholars, their families, Archons and Archousa gathered for the annual Scholars Holiday Breakfast to hear a distinguished panel of achievers share life lessons about pushing through adversity and making good choices.::/introtext::
The event at Scott United Methodist Church, 2880 Garfield Street, in Denver the breakfast was sponsored by the Delta Eta Boule Foundation and was hosted by Archon Nelson Mozia, chairman of the Scholarship Program.
On the panel sharing insights were Archousa Glenda Barry, human resources director at the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment; Archousa Regina Jackson, real estate business owner; Archousa Jeanette Patterson, director of human resources for Adams-12 School District; Archousa Jacqueline Forester, attorney and real estate property owner, and Andrew Craig, a graduate student at the University of Texas- Austin, studying film and television.
They offered their perspectives on how they defined determination and how they have shown it in their lives. Many of the panels talked about challenges in their work experiences, finding mentors and settling on career choices. Much of the advice centered on not being deterred from achieving your dream and realizing that you can find mentors in the unlikeliest of places.
Panelists told stories about their own struggles and difficult choices to help these young African-American men and scholars understand they control their own destinies and need to start taking responsibility now and not be afraid to ask for help.
"It was fun,” said Archon Mozia. “Anytime we get to spend with scholars and their families is great." In attendance were numerous archons, including Craig James, Marc Wallace, Eula Adams, Collis Johnson, Hollis Booker, Gary Jackson, Brian Cooper, Jeriod Patterson, Ken Taylor, Al Cooper, Wiley Daniel, BJ Rodgers, and Archousa Heather Barry.
Delta Eta Boule Foundation is currently supporting 34 scholars, each receiving one-on-one mentoring from a DEB Archon while they are in college. About $340,000 is committed to these scholarship winners over their four- year college career. DEB’s annual Denim & Dazzle fundraiser helps underwrite scholarship funding.
The Delta Eta Boule Foundation is planning to support a total of 40 scholars beginning with the 2018-19 school year.::/fulltext::
