(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA • November 3, 2022)— DCCC students Anthony Tuwacha of Parkesburg (center) and Zahkee Hawkins of Marcus Hook (right) recently attended a four-day Men of Color Student Leadership Institute hosted by the Presidents’ Round Table, a group consisting of African American chief executive officers of U.S. community colleges. 

DCCC’s Black and Latino Male Empowerment Initiative (BLMEI) sponsored the two students, who were accompanied by Counselor/Assistant Professor Robert Wrease Jr. BLMEI seeks to improve the academic success, retention and graduation rates, as well as the overall positive experiences of Black and Latino students.

Students attended sessions on life transition and global mindset, education, credentials, community and civic engagement, and human & technical skills presented by community college presidents, administrators and faculty, as well as by representatives from private and nonprofit organizations.

President Dr. L. Joy Gates Black, the first African American president of Delaware County Community College, is a PRT member.
