CONNECTING STUDENTS, PARENTS AND EDUCATORS TO COLLEGIATE OPPORTUNITIES

MISSOURI CITY, TX

— The 2nd Annual Spring Educational Enrichment Expo (E3), hosted by the Mu Kappa Omega

Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated in partnership with the Fort Bend Independent School District

(FBISD), will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday, February 25 at Thurgood Marshall High School, 1220 Buffalo

Run, Missouri City, Texas. Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) will be represented along with a number

of educational exhibitors will be on-hand to meet with prospective students regarding college admissions, educational

resources and scholarship opportunities.

More than 50 HBCU schools and several educational support organizations have been invited under this year’s theme

“E3 – To the Moon and Back” . Representatives from NASA will also be present to discuss STEM Career Pathways at

NASA and participate in workshops, and expo attendees will also be able to take part in hands-on STEM activities.

“Each year we continue to grow our event and this year is no exception.”, says Ruthelen Robinson, Mu Kappa Omega’s

E3 Coordinator. “Event registration is open to students, parents, educators, and community-based organizations

throughout Fort Bend County and surrounding areas.”

In 2015, this event attracted the support of nearly 600 students, parents and educators who took advantage of the many

opportunities. This is an exciting time to allow HBCUs representatives, alumni and those who are interested in learning

more about HBCUs to meet, exchange ideas and take advantage of everything the expo has to offer, all while

recruiting the next generation of students to attend our colleges and universities.

The goals of the event are to:

 Increase college enrollment in under-served and under-represented populations of the community

 Educate the community about the value of Historically Black Colleges and Universities

 Allow participants to become familiar with a variety of financial aid programs and educational resources

 Connect post-secondary options to a student’s career, vocational interest and opportunities

Participants will have the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions that will prepare them for their future college/

university endeavors, through an abbreviated number of workshops. In detail the workshops will cover Career Choices,

College/Campus Life, Financial Aid/Scholarships, Life Skills, and Parent Support.

Attendance to the expo is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. To register and for additional details, please click here. For more information regarding registration please contact
