Since 1983, the Black Alumni Council has actively worked to attract bright students to the university by providing scholarships to graduating high school seniors who have excelled academically. Richard Theodore Greener, the man for whom the scholarship is named, became the first African-American to graduate from Harvard University in 1870 and was the first African-American faculty member at Carolina in 1873.
Black Alumni Council invites you to join us as a sponsor for our 40th anniversary celebration during Homecoming 2019! We will kick off the weekend with the Richard T. Greener Scholarship Breakfast on Friday morning and recognize 40 years of BAC later that evening at our anniversary celebration. Our events are made possible through the generous support of both corporate and individual sponsors. We look forward to celebrating this milestone with you November 1-3 back home at the University of South Carolina.
