Delta College African American Employee Council Sponsors "Chicken & Waffle" Fundraiser.

Thursday, February 16, 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. at Danner Hall

Don’t miss an evening of great food…and help Delta College students while you’re at it! Delta's African American Employee Council (AAEC) is hosting a "Chicken and Waffle" fundraiser on Thursday, February 16, 4:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. at Danner Hall.

AAEC is bringing this traditional southern classic (made famous by Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles) to Stockton to raise money for student scholarships and to support AAEC events.  Pre-sale tickets are $10.00. Call (209) 954-5151 x6169.

The AAEC provides four $250.00 scholarships to continuing students of African descent at Delta College every year. Providing student scholarships is central to the AAEC's mission to "promote academic achievement and success within the African American community."

In addition to student scholarships, the AAEC hosts a Celebration of Black Graduates to recognize the academic achievements of Delta students. The Celebration serves as a cultural transition ceremony where graduates experience a series of African rituals designed to prepare them for the next phase of life's journey. Each student is conferred with a hand woven Kente strip from Ghana, West Africa, which symbolizes the historical and cultural tradition of striving for excellence. The ceremony is meant to remind students of their accomplishments, and reinforce their responsibility to continue “that which is good.”

By supporting this event, you will partner with AAEC to nurture academic achievement in the African American community through activities that promote cultural awareness and accomplishment.

For more information or to purchase tickets, contact: AAEC President Lisa Patton at: [email protected] or AAEC Vice President Evan Wade, [email protected] More Information: (209) 954-5151 x6169.
