The American Honda Motor Company recently awarded a $4,000 grant to Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO) to support the University’s Honda Campus All-Star team.
During the annual national championship challenge in Torrance, Calif., various teams comprised of students from several historically black colleges and universities participate in academic competitions. SUNO’s team won two awards at the 2015 event. Coach Amelia Sellers was named Coach of the Year, and senior Jonah Leavell earned honors as the top scorer in the Louis Armstrong Division.
“SUNO thanks Honda for sponsoring this event for the past 25 years,” SUNO Chancellor Victor Ukpolo said. “It provides a unique opportunity for our students to demonstrate their knowledge and establish beneficial relationships. We look forward to continuing our partnership.”
