KKC’s Union Book Scholarship Committee Awards

On April 28, Kennedy-King College’s (KKC) Union Book Scholarship Committee awarded nearly $2000 in scholarship money to winners of its annual essay-writing competition.

The ceremony, held in the College’s Great Hall, featured an inspiring keynote address by former KKC President Clyde El-Amin, solo voice performances by 16-year-old student Tiana Covington – who floored attendees by signing songs made famous by Adele and Etta James – serious swing by Professor (Emeritus) Dr. Curtis Prince’s trio, and a special tribute to the late Professor Joseph Kyle, who taught at KKC for more than three decades.

Pictured here, left to right, are Chairman Corey Hall, and the winners: Michelle Fulton, Romello Bonds, Jazmen Green, Christopher Young, Marcquerie Christy, Paschon Pruitt, and Jasmine Williams.

Winners included: Michelle Fulton, Romello Bonds, Jazmen Green, Christopher Young, Marcquerie Christy, Paschon Pruitt, and Jasmine Williams. All winners also received copies of Death of a Nation, Professor Kyle’s biography.
