Help Sponsor Student HBCU Tour
The luncheon at Beloit Memorial High School will also familiarize people with African American culture.
“For those who have always wondered what characterizes a dish as soul food, the answer is simple: it has to do with spirituality, as well as food,” said Regina D. Hendrix, cheer and step team coach at BMHS.

The long term objective of the project is to develop the ways and means to assure that qualified BMHS high school students become familiar with the historic mission of Black Colleges and Universities and their broad range of high quality educational programs and academic fields. Another objective is to identify students who would especially benefit from the stimulating and supportive learning environments so characteristic of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
