Choosing to be a part of the HBCU Awareness Foundation upon graduating high school was by far one of the best decisions I’ve made. When thinking about where I wanted to further my education I didn’t know exactly where I wanted to be but I knew it had to be an HBCU. What better way to explore those options than finding and participating in a program geared toward bringing more students into HBCUs?

I have been attending this fair since 2019. This fair has allowed me to reach more students in Memphis, Arkansas and Mississippi and also to expose those same students to opportunities at Lincoln University of Missouri (and Harris-Stowe State University previously). On average, I leave the caravan with over 200 applications/transcripts from students, and we’ve been able to grow our Memphis enrollment by almost 10%. The caravan has also allowed me to connect closer with counselors and community partners.
Vice President Student Affairs
I have been associated with the HBCU Awareness Foundation since it’s inception, at the time, I was Vice President of Enrollment at Rust College. This organization has been a tremendous resource to students and institutions across the country – as they [HBCU Awareness] expose students to colleges and make higher education a reality for students who may not have considered all of their post-secondary options.

I was able to witness Corey assist his very first student with the transition from high school to college. To think that he has since placed almost 8,500 students in college is simply amazing. It is even more impressive seeing the success and accomplishments of those that have been placed with the assistance of the foundation. Corey and the HBCU Awareness Foundation have been a vital part of changing the dynamics of many families for generations to come.
