The 100 Black Men College & Scholarship Fair is sponsored by the aforementioned organization to identify high academic students to receive their scholarships and to inform students of college opportunities.  Thornwood students were able to meet and possibly gain on the spot acceptance to the colleges of their choice.   There were over 100 colleges and universities present.  The students came with many copies of their transcripts, ACT/SAT Score sheets, resumes & personal statements to give each college.  They were interviewed immediately, if the rep saw fit.  1/3 of our students received immediate acceptance letters from universities such at Tuskegee, Hampton, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Florida Memorial, Philander & Alabama A & M!!!  Some of their names are:
