Eleven King’s College students and five mentors recently participated in the third 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 was the culmination of a semester of skill-building workshops for the participating students. The program was made possible by a grant from the McGowan Small Family Fund.
The Forum included opportunities for students to both be mentored and network and a dinner featuring a keynote address.
A Catholic College Sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross.
