WINTER PARK – This Saturday April 15 on The Crossman Conversation at 1:05 p.m. business leader John Crossman will highlight why one of his greatest passions in life is supporting HBCUs across the nation.
John and his family and companies have supported HBCUs for decades through endowed scholarships. He has held fundraisers and called upon his colleagues and CEOs of many companies to support them, as well as recruit their new talent from these overlooked institutions.
Crossman is recognized nationally and has been a sought-after speaker at colleges and universities about his book, Career Killers/Career Builders: The Book Every Millennial Should Read. But he will tell you, without reservation, that out of more than 30 colleges and universities where he has lectured – either about successful careers, leadership, or real estate – the students who were the most engaged, curious, and who demonstrated grit, energy and desire, were those at the HBCUs.
“I want to emphasize with a series of guests from B-CU and other HBCUs what an important role these colleges and universities play in our country, and why businesses need to support and add HBCUs to their talent pool for recruitment”, says Crossman.
