The 100 Black Men of Savannah’s Collegiate 100 Chapter of Armstrong Atlantic State University has received national honors as the runnerup Collegiate 100 Chapter of 2011 by the 100 Black Men of America. The award is based upon the Collegiate 100’s accomplishments in the areas of community service, academic excellence, and serving as campus role models.
Armstrong’s Collegiate 100 Chapter president, Kwame Phillips, and Immediate-Past President, Oluwayomi Adeyomo, will represent the chapter at the 25th National Conference of the 100 Black Men of America in San Francisco, CA on June 10, 2011, where they will receive the award, including a $1,500 program grant. Their travel to San Francisco is made possible by the combined support of the Savannah 100, Armstrong Atlantic State University, Delta Airlines, and individual members of the Savannah 100.
In making the announcement, Lloyd A. Johnson, president of the 100 Black Men of Savannah, Inc., stated “As the percentage of African- American male college graduates declines, these outstanding men have combined academic excellence with community service and contributed to the betterment of Savannah.
They deserve our highest praise for the honor which they bring to themselves, the Savannah 100, Armstrong Atlantic State University – but particularly the city of Savannah as well.
