Posted by Communications on 9/27/2017

Thirty-eight Phoenix Union students will spend Fall Break on a annual tour of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, thanks to financial support from the Burton Family Foundation, a supporting organization of the Arizona Community Foundation, and its Black Philanthropy Initiative.  The group from Betty Fairfax, Cesar Chavez, Maryvale, Linda Abril and Trevor Browne will explore post-secondary opportunities at Texas Southern University, Prairie View A&M, Grambling State University, Mississippi Valley State University, Jackson State University, and Southern University, October 9-13.  Fairfax teacher Sandra Jenkins is a driving force behind these annual trips.  She is a graduate of Mississippi Valley State University, and her hometown newspaper in Mound Bayou has reported that the Phoenix group is on their way to the Magnolia State.
