The Division of Advancement & Development greeted approximately 80 women for the annual United Negro College Fund (UNCF) Women’s Leadership Tea, on November 13, at The Ledges of Huntsville Ballroom.
The occasion was filled with delightful conversation, delicious goodies, beautiful art and music. Students shared their gratitude for UNCF scholarship assistance, and student musicians shared their musical talents. Miss UNCF 2016 Kaylah Joseph led the audience in writing a “Letter of Hope” to women residents of local shelters, who are recovering from domestic violence.
The Women’s Leadership Tea is one of a series of fundraising events for the North Alabama Campaign for the United Negro College Fund, the nation’s largest and most effective minority education organization. Proceeds from the event will be directed toward scholarships at Oakwood University.
