Brother holds Talent Showcase March 1 to benefit scholarship fund
An Arkansas State University student organization, Brother 2 Brother,
will host a non-competitive Talent Showcase set for 8 p.m.- 10 p.m.,
Monday, March 1, in the Reng Student Services Center/Student Union
Auditorium, 101 N. Caraway Road, Jonesboro. Brother 2 Brother is a
student organization designed to increase retention and graduation rates
among African-American male students by providing African-American male
students with a nurturing environment, academic support, character
development and community service opportunities.
Faculty, staff, students, and the public are all invited
to enjoy some of the finest talent on the campus of Arkansas State
University. The showcase will highlight spoken word poetry,
interpretative dance, singing, rap, and other musical talents. All
proceeds from the Talent Showcase will help provide scholarships for
Brother 2 Brother members.
“The young men of Brother 2 Brother have been extremely active this
academic year and I am very proud of their efforts. The motto for
Brother 2 Brother is ‘Achieving and Succeeding Together,’ and when these
young men recognized that some of their members could really benefit
from book scholarships, they decided to take action. This exemplifies
the meaning of Brother 2 Brother,” stated Melanie Richardson, Diversity
Fellow for ASU’s Office of Diversity Initiatives.
Tickets are $5
and can be purchased in the Student Union on Wednesday, Feb. 24, Friday,
Feb. 26, and Monday, March 1, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. or
in room 114 of the Administration Building.
