UWDE Intern Nysier Judkins Accepted to Three Universities During HBCU Week

Congratulations to United Way of Delaware intern Nysier Judkins, who was recently accepted to three colleges during the City of Wilmington’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Week College Fair.

Like too many young students in our state, Nysier’s family was recently affected by the aftermath and trauma of gun violence. This makes Nysier’s hard work, determination, and dedication to bettering himself even more impressive.

The mission of HBCU Week is to encourage high-school youth to enroll in HBCUs, provide scholarship dollars for matriculation, and sustain a pipeline for employment from undergraduate school to corporate America.

Colleges from across America and organizations such as Major League Baseball and the National Football League came to the Chase Fieldhouse to recruit students looking to further their education.

During the event, Governor John Carney declared October 1 “Global Diversity Day.” United Way of Delaware board chair Rick Deadwyler, Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki, and representatives from the Delaware Racial Justice Collaborative spoke on the importance of HBCUs, and education in general.

Congratulations, Nysier! Keep working hard.
