Scholarship breakfast

Good food, good company and a good cause came together on a recent Saturday morning to give a good start to the weekend. More than 1,000 folks gathered at Martin's West for the 15th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship Breakfast, raising more than $15,000 for the Howard L. Cornish Metropolitan Baltimore Chapter of the Morgan State University Alumni Association.

The morning's program offered a feast of treats: Local organizations and residents were honored for their community service, students were awarded scholarships, and NAACP President Kweisi Mfume delivered the morning's address.

Enjoying the events: Anthony C. McPhail and Diane McPhail, event co-chairs; Julia Davidson-Randall and Arzella Stevenson, event committee members; Cheryl Hitchcock, national MSU Alumni Association president; Gloria Braxton, chapter president of the Howard L. Cornish chapter; Dallas Evans, MSU board of regents chair; Dr. Earl S. Richardson, MSU president; Georgine Edgerton, Sam Daniels, J. Albert Maddox and Estelle Pinkett, honorees; Vic Carter, WJZ-TV news anchor; Linda Brown, associate director of civil rights for the Federal Highway Administration; and Kambarage Waista, Pamela Bennett, Stephen Dickerson and Arionna Stevenson, scholarship recipients.
