NAHRO 2020 Agency Awards of Merit

Historical Black Colleges and Universities Fair

The Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Fair began in February 2018 as part of celebrating Black History Month at the Housing Authority of Florence. At that time, only eight high school students attended the fair. They partnered with the Epsilon Chi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. They also invited South Carolina HBCU to attend the fair (Allen University, Benedict College, Morris College, South Carolina State University, Voorhees College) and Fayetteville State University of North Carolina. As of 2019, the number of high school attendees has grown to fourteen students.
