April 3, 2012 - Nine King’s College students and eight mentors recently participated in the second annual “Impact” Forum, an outreach program designed to enrich the lives of the College’s male minority students. The event was held at the Westmoreland Club.

The Forum included opportunities for students to both be mentored and network and a dinner featuring an address by Roger Jackson, chief executive officer and president of R. Jackson & Associates Educational Consulting.
