As always, the purpose of this trip was to encourage students to aim towards higher educational goals, inspire academic achievement by exposing students to various types of colleges and universities and to educate the students on opportunities available once in college.
Students visited Florida State University (Tallahassee, FL), Florida A&M University (Tallahassee, FL), Duke University (Durham, NC), North Carolina A&T State University (Greensboro, NC), Clark Atlanta University (Atlanta, GA), Morehouse College (Atlanta, GA), Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, GA), and Tuskegee University (Tuskegee, AL). Due to unforeseen events, we were unable to attend Georgia Southern University (Statesboro, GA) this year but look forward to including the University on a future tour.
Congratulations to senior Kappa Leaguer, Delano Young, who has been accepted to both Clark Atlanta University and Morehouse College. He had the opportunity to speak with admissions officers while at the respective Universities and was offered scholarship monies to attend Morehouse College.
Like last year, the tour concluded with an opportunity for the young men to fellowship with members of the Mobile, Tallahassee, and Birmingham Kappa Leaguers at the 13th Annual Battle of the Bay Step Show Competition and after party in Mobile, AL.
