Congratulations to the Cleveland Council of Black Colleges Alumni Association under the leadership of Anthony H. Brown, for receiving recognition from the lovely ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. during their 86th Great Lakes Regional Conference. The honor was bestowed upon the Council for the continued service to the community in the area of Educational Enrichment that supports the sorority's Think HBCU national initiative.

A fundraiser to support the 5th Annual HBCU Freshmen Send-Off & Cookout.
Stop by anytime between 8am-10am on May 6th and enjoy a short stack for a tall cause. Take mom out for a Pre-Mother's Day outing. Host a breakfast committee meeting at this time. Invite your family and friends out for a quick bite before a day of shopping. Gather for a Ladies Social or Men's Outing.
