Since its inception in 1989, the Historically Black Colleges & Universities Tour Experience (HBCUTE) takes 60-80 students to visit historically black colleges and universities throughout the country. This tour offers students the opportunity to experience a variety of higher education options. In addition to visiting the colleges and universities, the tour includes visits to locations that offer an enhanced educational and cultural experience. As we proudly continue the legacy of founder, Mrs. Shirley Ann Allen, the event will support the Shirley A. Allen Scholarship Fund, established in 2013. This fund supports students seeking financial assistance to participate in the tour. Many students who have shared this experience would not have had the opportunity to do so if it was not for the generosity of individual donors, groups, and corporate sponsors.
The 2017 gala theme “Rising in Excellence” will honor educators in our community who have been instrumental in the lives of students that have participated in the tour experience. We look forward to an evening of celebration as we continue in the mission to impress upon the importance of higher education.
