Oakwood’s Ambassadors in the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge are on their way to compete in a National Qualifying Tournament on February 8, 2019. The NQT takes place on the campus of Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis.
Oakwood University’s Honda Campus All Star Challenge (HCASC) team includes:
- Ross Parkinson (captain),
- Danielle Honore’
- Crosby Lambert
- David Reid
- Nirvana Walton (alternate)
Traveling with the team are sponsors Drs. Rennae Elliott and Steven Lai Hing
Oakwood is one of 65 teams competing for institutional grants and a spot in the HCASC National Championship Tournament in April, at the American Honda campus in Torrance, California.
From now until February 13, voting is open to qualify Oakwood University in the All-Star Challenge. You can register and vote up to three (3) times per day. Please vote each day to help Oakwood University qualify for the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge this year.
The goal is a strong, engaged, and tournament-ready field that includes all of the 65 eligible HBCUs. Twelve (12) “at large” selections, including the top scorers in the “My HBCU Is A Winner” campaign and others, balance the playing field and ensure that all participating HBCUs have an NQT experience every few years.
The year-round Honda Campus All-Star Challenge program centers on academic excellence, community service, leadership, networking opportunities and mentorships.
