Winners celebrated at Annual HBCUgrow Conference

HBCUgrow presented the 2018 LEAD Awards on November 15 at its annual conference. Historically Black Colleges and Universities were recognized in the categories of leadership, innovation, marketing, website, and military-friendly.

“We were excited to celebrate the accomplishments with this year’s LEAD Award winners,” said Jeanne Frazer, president of vitalink, a founding partner of HBCUgrow. “There are some amazing things happening at these institutions, and we love bringing everyone together to learn from each other and recognize their accomplishments. We congratulate all the winners!” Nominations for the LEAD Awards were accepted from the public over a two-month period this spring, then voting opened this summer. Winners were selected using a combined calculation based on 50% of the public vote (you’ll notice the Grambling community showed love and support for their school!) and 50% of the vote by our judges’ panel.
