Spelman College is a historically black women’s college dedicated to the liberal arts and sciences in Atlanta. Today the college has more than 2,100 students and boasts an 80%-plus graduation rate. Annually, one in five Spelman students are unable to secure funds to stay enrolled. At the luncheon the co-chairs presented a staggering million dollar check to Spelman to go towards student financial aid. For more info visit: www.spelman.edu
