ETTRICK — The men of the Nu Omicron Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. hosted the 2016 Black and Gold Scholarship Ball to honor five local young people heading to college this year.
The event took place at the Gateway Dining and Event Center on the campus of Virginia State University on May 21.
“Smart, intelligent, articulate, talented, gifted, confident,” these are just a few of the adjectives the fraternity used to describe their honorees in a statement.
The 2016 Nu Omicron Lambda Foundation Scholarship recipients are: Makayla Hawkes (North Carolyn A&T University), Andrea Johnson (North Carolina Wesleyan College), Charles Salley II (Virginia State University), Alexandrea Williams (Matoaca High School), and Ciprianna Haynes.
Parents Andre and Cynthia Hawkes, Rossie and Adrienne Johnson, and Charles and Parcilla Salley joined other guests and fraternity members during the scholarship recognition ceremony.
A previous commitment prevented scholarship recipient Alexandrea Williams and her devoted parents Willie and Elena Williams from participating in the award ceremony. Alexandrea will attend George Mason University.
Additionally, this year Ciprianna Haynes, the beautiful and talented daughter of Paul and Donnitta Brown, was awarded a chapter scholarship.
The men of Nu Omicron Lambda Chapter have consistently demonstrated their commitment to helping students in our community realize their true potential by awarding scholarships that have, to date, exceeded $35,000.
