Black Caucus hosts the first annual Ashe Awards

December 6, 2009

The Black Caucus hosts the first annual Ashe Awards. Over 300 students packed the Paul Robeson Cultural Center’s Heritage Hall for the event.  Black Caucus vice president Travis Salters said the award show was named the Ashe Awards because of the word’s positive meaning,“in agreement with.”  Students were given the opportunity to vote for other students and organizations online. The categories ranged from fun nominations such as the Smooth Award, Classy Award and Fly Girl, to Service to the Community, Best Greek Program of the Semester, and Best Sorority and Best Fraternity. The idea for the awards originated from similar programs held at a few commonwealth campuses.
