Reaching Out to The Community: Soul Fest 2016

On Feb. 24, 2016, I had the opportunity to represent Globe University & Minnesota School of Business-Online at Soul Fest. This event was held in celebration of Black History & Culture at Washburn High School in Minneapolis. Soul Fest hosted a packed house for students and their families. There were more than 200 guests in attendance.

The event kicked off with a soul food meal that included fried chicken, mac & cheese, green bean salad, cupcakes and punch. After families enjoyed their dinner, they were invited to attend a performance held by the students.

The show was performed by 9th-12th grade students from Washburn High School. During the performances, the students were able to express themselves through poetry, dance or a spoken word. During the event, I was given the opportunity to speak to students and their parents about the importance of understanding financial aid. Anytime a student has a chance to have a deeper understanding of educational funding it can make an impact as the college process is not a short one!
