KaKY presents. .. College Night at Richmond Community High School

KaKY presents…College Night at Richmond Community High School was held Thursday October 16, 2014.  We had over 15 colleges from Virginia and North Carolina in attendance.  Some colleges included: Virginia Union University, Virginia Commonwealth University, North Carolina A&T, University of Richmond, Longwood University, Bryant and Stratton and more.  We were also honored to have special guest speaker Micah “Bam Bamm” White open the event with an inspirational speech.  His encouraging words provided the youth with a real life look into the importance if making good decisions.  He also stressed the importance of the friends you may choose and how they can impact your future.   Finally, Mr. White left us with a quote by Mahatma Gandhi, ” Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”. 

Yet another successful event planned by Kollege and Kareer 4 Youth.  If you wish to plan any events for your school or youth organization, contact us at kakymail@yahoo.com.
