Livingstone to induct 12 into UNCF Hall of Fame tonight
SALISBURY — Livingstone College will host its annual United Negro College Fund “Share Your Love” Hall of Fame banquet at 7 tonight at the School of Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts on Jake Alexander Boulevard.
The formal banquet is in celebration of Livingstone leaders and will welcome 12 inductees into the Hall of Fame.
“This year’s inductees have the special distinction of being celebrated during the college’s 140th anniversary,” said Livingstone President Jimmy R. Jenkins. “As we recognize their achievements and selflessness for the greater good in their communities, it reaffirms the legacy of this great institution.”
Bruce Stanback, a Rockingham native who will be inducted, is a 1979 graduate of Livingstone and has made significant strides in his community. Stanback served for 20 years on the Richmond County Board of Education and was the first African-American to chair any county elected board there.
All of the inductees have demonstrated the characteristics of stewardship, empathy and commitment to personal growth toward others, said Deborah Johnson, Livingstone’s UNCF director.
The banquet is a major fundraiser for Livingstone’s UNCF campaign.
Each recipient is asked to invest in the education pursuits of a college student and make the dream of a college degree become a reality through an annual gift to UNCF.
This year’s inductees are:
• Edna Adams-Fulton.
• The Rev. Sheila Bowie-Sledge.
• LaKesha M. Gant, Class of 1994.
• Shirley F. Holt, Class of 1967.
• Lee S. Howard Jr., Class of 1979.
