The Tom Joyner Foundation has selected Oakwood University as its HBCU of the Month for November 2011. Our campaign goal has been set at $100,000, which we hope to exceed with your assistance. Donations can be made online by clicking the button below:
During November 2011, national attention will be focused on Oakwood University, and our outstanding students and graduates. The primary vehicle for this attention will be Joyner’s nationally-syndicated “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” which reaches over 15 million listeners each weekday. The Oakwood family is excited about this opportunity to assist our students with their educational goals while also nationally promoting the University. “The foundation is really happy to work with Oakwood University,” said Joyner, a graduate of Tuskegee Institute and the foundation’s chairman. “Oakwood has a wonderful history and this foundation is all about making sure students are able to stay in school.”
Male students who are enrolled as full-time students, with a 3.5 GPA and have a demonstrated financial need, are encouraged to submit an application for the Hercules Scholarship, named after Tom Joyner’s late father Hercules L. Joyner. This scholarship embodies and celebrates successful male students attending HBCUs. Students selected for this scholarship must exhibit academic excellence, leadership skills and community service. All Hercules Scholars will be announced on the Tom Joyner Morning Show during the month of November. The application deadline is Wednesday, October 26, 2011.
For more information on the Tom Joyner HBCU of the Month Campaign, please contact Cheri Wilson, director of Development, at 256.726.7584. Be sure to listen to the Tom Joyner Morning Show in your area Monday through Friday.
