When the news arrives from inside our home, we are more than happy to amplify it! Our Emani Nichols, Atlanta-based video director and multimedia reporter at Atlanta’s voice and a 2020 Morehouse College Graduated with a BA in African Studies is one of four winners of the very first TBS HBCU Cash Out ™ interactive social media competition!
Throughout Black History Month, TBS and Ambassadors Lance Gross (“Star”, “MacGyver”) and Keshia Knight Pulliam (“The Cosby Show”, “House of Payne”), aims to financially empower recent graduates of historically black colleges and universities. From February 8 to March 8, attendees creatively shared a 60-second video via Instagram, Twitter or YouTube on how attending an HBCU helps them achieve their goals.
“This is a great initiative that I hope is starting a trend in the corporate world to help eliminate student loan debt,” Nichols said. “No one should be burdened with wanting to advance their studies!”
Impressed by the many innovative and thoughtful nominations, as well as the critical need to help black Americans reduce student loans, TBS increased the number of three grand prize recipients from $ 25,000 to four, for a total of $ 100,000.
Today, Lance and Keshia appeared on “GMA 3: what you need to know“ and revealed the grand prize winners of $ 25,000 each: Anastacia CC Davis (Alabama State University), Emani Nichols (Morehouse College), Kevin Perry (Delaware State University) and Kalen Robinson (Howard University).
