The Milwaukee Urban League will host its annual National Achievers Society Youth Induction Ceremony on Monday, May 14, 2012 at the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee (UWM), Student Union, 2200 East Kenwood Boulevard, from 5:30-7:30pm.
The National Achievers Society (NAS) is a key component of the League’s Education and Training Initiatives. The purpose of the NAS induction is to promote, encourage and recognize all students for their academic achievement and continuing education. The event is a catalyst that will bring together a diverse group of parents, families, friends and sponsors to celebrate the students for their academic achievement.
The League believes that inductees will be future leaders in the Milwaukee community. Ralph Hollmon, President and CEO of the League states that, “For our students to be successful, they must have a good education in order to compete in a global, increasingly technical society”. Inductees will be offered numerous opportunities i.e., exposure to college preparation workshops, college tours, financial aid forums, community service projects and access to scholarship opportunities.
The evening’s guest speaker will be Inspector Edith Hudson, the highest ranking African American female in the Milwaukee Police Department. The general public is invited to attend.
For 92 years the Milwaukee Urban League has brought focus to issues confronting individuals and families in the community. The League has long recognized that students who show exemplary achievement and behavior must be recognized and supported. The National Achievers Youth Recognition Ceremony is a component of the National Urban League’s Campaign for African American Achievement (CAAA) and Project Ready Program.
