“The CIAA Is a special tournament. You know, it is the first, oldest African American tournament and honoring our student-athletes, said Janet Currie, with Bank of America. “The HBCUs are an integral part of educating our students. And so, Bank of America is contributing to that scholarship fund, which you can also do as well. We know that students should be able to graduate despite not having every penny.”

“We know that we must Invest in our communities because we are our communities,” Currie added. “I know that it means so much to me because every single day that I was on that campus it was instilled in me that I was destined for greatness. So it gave me not only strong academics but incredible confidence, an incredible sense of history and pride in that, and it just prepared me, really quite frankly, for where I am today.”
