200+ Scholars Breakfast recognizes six Surry County High School students


 200+ Scholars Breakfast recognizes six Surry County High School students. 

The Hampton Roads Committee of 200+ Men, Inc. recognized six Surry County African-American seniors who have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better at their annual 200+ Scholars Breakfast held on May 18, 2019 at the Hampton Roads Convention Center in Hampton, Virginia.

The Annual Scholars Breakfast is the area’s premier event recognizing and honoring black male students for their commitment to academic excellence.  Since 1998, more than 7,000 African American males graduating from public and private high schools in the greater Hampton Roads region with a 3.0 or better grade point average have been recognized.  Many of these young men, including our Surry High scholars, were also recognized at the event by the universities that they plan to attend. 

 “I was honored to attend the breakfast and see the names of our young scholars listed and recognized among the hundreds of others who represented their respective schools, families and communities,” said Superintendent Michael Thornton.  “I am confident that these young men will go on to do great things.”

The Hampton Roads Committee of 200+ Men is a regional organization of men, influencing and building better communities by encouraging, inspiring and enabling African American young people and adults to reach their highest potential.
