Just outside of the nation's capital thousands of high school students and their families flocked to T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, VA on Saturday, February 20. Alfred Street Baptist Church, one of the oldest, largest and most prominent African American churches in Alexandria, Virginia, sponsored their largest college fair to date; the 14th Annual HBCU College Festival where $2.1 Million in scholarship funds were awarded to high school students.
Students received life-changing news: Not only did many get accepted on-site to a plethora of HBCUs such as Hampton University, Virginia Union University, and Norfolk State University, but many received full rides. This is just another way that Alfred Street Baptist Church continues to make a difference and impact the lives of others by hosting such a significant event during Black History month.
