The 15th Annual Excellence in Education Awards Luncheon of the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce was held today to recognize outstanding performance in education.
More than a decade ago, the Dallas Black Chamber of Commerce and local businesses joined to assist Dallas area students in pursuing their career goals through the Excellence in Education Scholarship Awards Luncheon.
The Excellence in Education enrichment program is designed to enhance the educational, cultural and social experiences of students in the Dallas area. The goal of the program is to have a positive impact on the attitudes, values and behaviors necessary for student success in and out of the classroom.
Community Scholarships in the amount of $1000.00 are sponsored for the purpose of encouraging youth to strive for academic excellence beyond high school.
