Keeper of the Dream Scholarship Awards Ceremony
1/21/2013, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
The Keeper of the Dream Award was established in January 1993 to recognize Oakland University students who have contributed to interracial understanding and good will. The Keeper of the Dream Scholarship Awards Celebration also honors the legacy of the late civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and awards up to six scholarships to students that best demonstrate exceptional leadership qualities through their involvement on campus and in the community by breaking down racial and cultural stereotypes and by promoting unity among all people to foster a campus environment rich in diversity and multiculturalism. It is also an opportunity to publicly recognize students who exemplify Dr. King’s vision, and to award them annual scholarships for their efforts in promoting interracial tolerance and understanding. Since its inception, over 80 students from a wide variety of academic majors have been awarded scholarships. The Keynote speaker for the 21st annual Keeper of the Dream Scholarship Awards Ceremony is Daymond John, founder of FUBU clothing line and currently starring on the television business show Shark Tank.
