On May 11, from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm, the community is invited to pay tribute to the 2020-2021 Brookdale Community College Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) graduates. Members of the Brookdale community who have championed the EOF vision and contributed to the program’s success will also be honored.

This year has been unlike any year for all of us, unimaginable adversity yet overcome by sheer tenacity and resilience! All Brookdalians, the faculty, administrators, staff, and students have stood strong and have remained cautiously optimistic about the future. They have engaged in incredible work during these challenging times. There now are eighty-three graduates to be proud of and to celebrate!

The evening will include a keynote presentation by David Tarver, lecturer, consultant, entrepreneur, and author of “Proving Ground: A Memoir,” which details his entrepreneurial journey from a childhood dream to international success. Student testimonials will be shared and our Office of Secretary of Higher Education (OSHE) Graduate Achievement awardees recognized.

This year’s EOF Champions are, Dr. Charanne Smith, Kim Van Lew, Edward Johnson, Jennifer Jordan, and Dr. Stephen Curto.

Please RSVP by April 30, 2021. Look for a Zoom link invitation to the graduation as we approach the event date.

The entire EOF staff, Richard, Carla, Kevin, Dorothy, Danielle, Tom, Gabrielle, & Omer, and the students and their guests, look forward to your company!
