About The Scholarship Banquet!

Sojourner-Douglass College (S-DC) will celebrate forty-one years of service at our Presidential Gala and Seventh Annual Scholarship Banquet! This event allows S-DC to recognize outstanding individuals or organizations whose extraordinary works have served to enrich the lives of others. As a private institution, this event also serves as one of our major fund raising events for scholarships and tuition assistance for students that are enrolled in our College who have real financial needs.

We also award scholarships to five (5) outstanding students at this event from the Dr. Charles W. Simmons Scholarship Fund, named in honor of our President & Founder Dr. Charles W. Simmons, among the longest standing presidents of any one college in the nation!

2012 Frederick Douglass Unsung Hero and Sojourner Truth Unsung Heroine

At this year's Presidential Gala and Seventh Annual Scholarship Celebration, two of the College's most esteemed administrators will receive the Unsung recognitions. They have both demonstrated a continued commitment to Sojourner-Douglass College. Each has worked tirelessly in support and expansion of the College's mission and vision, and has made a tremendous investment in the overall growth and success of the institution.

*Ms. Doris W. Carroll, current Dean of the Owings Mills campus with over 10 years of commitment to S-DC will receive the Sojourner Truth Unsung Heroine Award. Ms. Carroll is credited with the College's attainment of our Park Avenue facility in Historic Mt. Vernon, plus a $267,000 gift from the previous owners (which she was President of their Board of Directors), among her many other supportive endeavors.

Mr. James M. Griffin, member of S-DC's Board of Directors for over 20 years was chosen to receive the Frederick Douglass Unsung Hero Award. Mr. Griffin has been a warrior for social justice and human rights for more than 50 years and a champion for transformation for Sojourner-Douglass College.

Please help us honor and pay tribute to them formally by sending congratulatory remarks to be included in our keepsake Souvenir Program Journal at this year's event (Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 6:00 - 10:00 p.m.)

Your remarks can be sent via email to no later than Wednesday, September 11, 2013. Thank you. We salute Ms. Carroll and Mr. Griffin!
