Kwame Building Group has donated $10,000 to the Harris-Stowe State Foundation to support its inaugural “Outstanding Alumni Under 40 Awards Program,” which will honor selected Harris-Stowe State University alumni under the age of 40 who have made outstanding achievements in their chosen fields of endeavor.
Harris-Stowe’s “Outstanding Alumni Under 40” awards will take place 7 p.m. Friday, October 26 at the Stifel Theatre (formerly Peabody Opera House), 1400 Market St. Proceeds from the event will be used for Harris-Stowe Foundation student scholarships.
The Harris-Stowe Foundation was created in 1992 to support activities that are not supported through state appropriations. The awards ceremony is part of the Alumni Reconnect Series, an initiative creating a network platform for career leaders, current students, and Harris-Stowe alumni.
“We recognize and celebrate the contributions of the alumni under 40 and congratulate HSSU on its continuing achievements and impact on the St. Louis community,” said Anthony Thompson, president and CEO of Kwame Building Group.
Tickets for the event can be purchased at www.hssu40award.com or through the university’s Bursar’s Office.
