Five Essay Finalists (read essays)
WELFund and SGA invite students on campus to research a remembered voice of the civil rights movement, write an essay describing what that person did, and why/how it inspires them (students) to make positive change in this world. Sample list of potential leaders below. Students can also select leaders from off this list but are encouraged to select someone who hasn't received great public recognition but has made a large impact.
Essays are due by email to Alex Coury (firstname.lastname@example.org), Program Manager of WELFund, no later than 4:30 PM on Wednesday, September 10th. Five finalists will be invited to present to a panel of judges on Thursday, September 18, from 2–4 p.m. in Regents Commons.
Date: Thursday, Sept. 18
Time: 2–4 p.m.
Location: Regents Commons, Shaw Center
