What is a HBCU? -- Historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are institutions of higher education in the United States that were established before 1964 with the intention of primarily serving the African American community. (wikipedia) HBCUs offer all students, regardless of race, an opportunity to develop their skills and talents.

Our RACS students even had the chance for a photo with Mayor Lovely Warren at HBCU Fair. 

We are so proud of Willie Brooks for  receiving a full-tuition Scholarship from Tuskegee University! Way To Go Willie!
