The Collegiate 100
The 100 Black Men of the Greater Columbia makes history by inducting its first cohort of young collegiate men into the inaugural chapter of the Collegiate 100 of Benedict College.
After a careful one-year review of the request for charter along with a year of student service and training, the local and national chapters of the 100 Black Men of America approved the charter and inducted 15 young men from Benedict College into the Collegiate 100 of Benedict College.
Dressed in black suits with black ties and eager to receive the official honor, each young man from Benedict College was pinned by one of the distinguished brothers of the 100 Black Men of the Greater Columbia.
The 100 Black Men of America is committed to impacting our future through mentoring the youth. The Collegiate 100 of Benedict College now becomes part of an august body of young, gifted intellectuals nationally and will enjoy even more opportunities to grow, serve, collaborate and network.
The young men at Benedict College have exciting activities planned that will impact the campus and community that including a voter registration drive, lunch buddies, service days and a number of symposiums and training sessions designed to propel them to success as they continue to matriculate through their college experience.
Additionally, each young man will be mentored by a brother from the Greater Columbia Chapter of the 100 Black Men of America. Together they hope to improve the quality of life for the people of the community through education, mentoring and service.
