Shatrika Lewis with GBSA president Yulia Ryvkina.

The Graduate Business Student Association at the Huizenga College of Business & Entrepreneurship (HCBE), hosted a Southern-style meal and discussion with distinguished panelists for NSU’s celebration of Black History Month.

The panel included J. Preston Jones, D.B.A., HCBE associate dean, Wilhelmina Mack, Ed.D., president of W. Mack & Associates, and Barron Channer, CEO, Woodwater Group.

The theme of the session was, “Successes and Challenges of Being an African American Business Person or Leader.” The panelists shared personal and professional experiences, and answered questions from attendees. Many students expressed how inspired they were by the stimulating discussion.

The evening also included a Black History Month trivia contest, with the winners each receiving a $100 cash prize. They were Dorian Barrera, Natacha Jerome and Shatrika Lewis.

This Black History Month event, which is under the leadership of GBSA president Hassan Saram, executive administrator Yulia Ryvkina, and faculty advisor Albert Williams, Ph.D., supported several of NSU’s core values, including student-centered, diversity, community, opportunity, and innovation.
