MEC Council Scholarship Luncheon Set for April 27
Community Council for Medgar Evers College’s Annual Spring Luncheon is a fun, informative and inspiring gathering of Brooklyn’s community supporters and leadership from all aspects of community governance including: our elected officials and representatives from education, law enforcement, judicial, business, ecumenical as well as Medgar scholars and faculty.
