LHS Black Student Union: Black College Expo Fieldtrip

Submitted by Chase Hayes
Community Outreach Intern

The LHS Black Student Union (BSU) took a trip to the Black College Expo last Saturday, February 18th at Laney College, in Oakland.

Black colleges, administrators, and alumni were at the expo providing information about their colleges, scholarships, and admission processes.

Along with the college information, seminars, workshops, job fairs, there was also a step show hosted by celebrity guests open for all students to view and explore.

James Smith, a BSU officer, was one of many club members who went on the educational fieldtrip.

He attended multiple seminars and workshops including, The 4-11 for the Student Athlete, Boomin’ Careers, and Eight Secrets to Becoming an Entrepreneur. He found the expo to be very informational in helping him prepare for making the right choice in furthering his education.

James attended the same expo last year and said that although the club was unable to experience everything they wanted, everyone who went on the trip came home knowing something new.
