Adams, Byrne Invite White House HBCU Initiative Director to Capitol Hill (53 hits)

Congresswoman Alma Adams (D-NC) and Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL), co-chairs of the Bipartisan Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Caucus, sent a letter extending an invitation to Johnathan Holifield, the newly appointed Executive Director of the White House HBCU Initiative, to meet with the Bipartisan HBCU Caucus on Capitol Hill. The letter invited Mr. Holifield to meet with the Caucus to discuss HBCU priorities and the use of public-private partnerships to continue moving the ball forward for HBCUs.

“This Administration has made bold promises to HBCUs”, said Congresswoman Adams. “I hope that Mr. Holiefield’s appointment is a sign that the Administration is ready to fulfill those promises. As the Chair of the Bipartisan HBCU Caucus, I’m proud to welcome Mr. Holifield to Capitol Hill. We look forward to working with him and the Administration to secure much needed funding, to create greater pathways of opportunity, and to level the playing field for our students and our schools.”
