Four Students To Represent WSSU in Honda Campus All-Star Challenge
Four students from Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) will be participating in the twenty-fifth annual Honda Campus All-Star Challenge's National Championship Tournament April 12-16 on the campus of American Honda Motor Company, Inc. in Torrance CA.
The WSSU team includes Georges I. Guillaume of West Palm Beach, FL, Martinique Lovett of Winston-Salem, NC, Valerie Nkansah of Newark, NJ, and Eric M. Vail of Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada. The team is coached by Cynthia J. Grant, manager of The Student Experience in University College and Lifelong learning.
The competition began last fall with teams from 76 Historically Black Colleges and Universities from around the country vying for the final 48 slots. The final two teams that emerge from the April playoffs will compete for the title of National Champion and the grand prize of $50,000 to support academic activities on the winning teams' campus. The finals of the 2014 Challenge will be streamed live on April 14 starting at noon EDT on HCASC.com.
"Honda Campus All-Star Challenge rewards the best and brightest for their academic achievements and prepares our student competitors for life beyond school by reinforcing their strong work ethic and introducing them to a thriving community of competition alumni," said Steve Morikawa, assistant vice president for corporate and community relations at American Honda.
