Columbia Urban League Recognizes Fourteen CN Seniors

The Columbia Urban League has commemorated Black History Month with its annual Young and Gifted Awards program for more than 35 years by celebrating the achievements of African-American students.  Saturday, the awards were presented at Brookland Baptist Church. Fourteen of our senior students were recognized this year.
In addition to recognizing seniors who excel in academics, the arts, leadership, technology, and athletics, they also spotlight seniors who have received special recognition in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Students are required to have a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale. 
Additionally, Erin Allert and Somto Okoye were awarded the Spotlight Award, for being among the most outstanding students nominated. Join us in congratulating these seniors on this incredible achievement!
