2020 NEIU Distinguished Alumnus Award–virtual gala today!

I was blessed to be nominated with the highest honor the university confers–2020 NEIU Distinguished Alumnus. This is not a ‘humble-brag post,” but a virtual thanks. I’m grateful to all involved in this decision which came unexpectedly.  A bittersweet celebration in these COVID-19 times where it isn’t safe to travel or to hold events.  I look forward to a year away when we may celebrate with family and friends.
 Because the gala was cancelled and the event is virtual and such events are difficult to hold I was asked to post tonight’s event. NEIU Virtual Golden Gala and Alumni Awards Ceremony. Please tune in at 7 p.m. CST  TONIGHT.
Only the host will be live for this event. They will play the pre-recorded videos for the awardees.
As for tonight, please share this event on social media and with your networks.
Bid on an Auction Item: Bid on one of several incredible auction items.

-You can also show your support by using the hashtag #NEIUVIRTUALGALA on a Twitter or Instagram post.

Here in self-quarantine we will celebrate privately.


My early congratulations to December 2020 graduates–I’ll see you then, although virtually. Meanwhile:
