HBCUs a pipeline to the major leagues

Donald Hunt Tribune Staff Writer

Most sports fans are familiar with the outstanding football and basketball programs at historically Black colleges and universities, but many baseball players from Black colleges have also gone on to the majors.

We don't have enough knowledge at 20 years old to make sound life decisions.

Athletic Fees
$870 per semester

Elizabeth City State University
$450 per semester

I'm sure the students at A&T voted to pay those fees, which has paid off in its growing enrollment. Also, I'm pretty sure the success of its athletic programs accounts for a deal of its enrollment growth. Some states, such as Virginia are putting a cap on student fees to fund athletic programs.  The article concentrated on negatives of HBCU's fund source for athletic programs.

I just wanted to put some actual numbers out there. The article left out the actual athletic fees that students pay.

Covington, an undrafted prospect out of Tenessee State, has risen as one of the most reliable 3-and-D players in the league. In 2018, he was selected into the NBA All-Defensive First Team.

University Of Alaska Readies For Budget Slash: 'We May Likely Never Recover'

The University of Alaska System is bracing for a 41% cut to its budget, after Gov. Mike Dunleavy vetoed a $130 million line item in the state's budget.

The announcement came last Friday, three days before the fiscal year began on July 1. Dunleavy vetoed roughly $400 million items in the budget, with education receiving the largest cut.

The university system will lose $130 million from the veto — on top of an additional $5 million previously agreed upon by legislators. The governor's 182 line-item cuts also included Medicaid, senior benefit payments and homelessness services.

Saint Paul’s College property sold (Dec 2017)

The former Saint Paul’s College might one day welcome students again to its campus in Brunswick County — but possibly under a different name.

Xinhua Education Investment Corp., a Chinese-backed group, purchased the remaining property of the historically black college on Nov. 27, according to county court records.

The group secured about 130 acres and about 30 campus buildings in Lawrenceville, the county seat, the records show.

“Challenge by choice” was the motto of Saint Paul’s College, which closed in 2013 because of financial problems and declining student enrollment.

Now the citizens of Lawrenceville are living up to that motto — by taking up the challenge of collecting and preserving artifacts documenting the 125-year history of the historically black college.

Lawrenceville residents and other supporters of Saint Paul’s College have opened a museum to showcase documents and memorabilia, including an original copy of “Adventure in Faith,” an autobiography written by the Rev. James Solomon Russell, who was born enslaved, became an Episcopal priest and founded the school in 1888.

Strange ... I guess they have plenty of cash to go around.

A Separate War: Pioneering Black Marines Endured, Prevailed

17 May 2019
The Associated Press | By TOM FOREMAN Jr.

The first African Americans admitted to the Marine Corps after Roosevelt's order were put in segregated units, starting with their training. At a swampy, bug-infested camp called Montford Point, adjacent to but separate from Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, they endured indignities — but they also paved the way for others who came after.
