200+ Scholars Breakfast recognizes 133 students from Hampton high schools

The Hampton Roads Committee of 200+ Men Inc. recognized 133 Hampton City Schools seniors who have earned a 3.0 or better grade point average at their annual 200+ Scholars Breakfast held May 12, at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. 

The Annual Scholars Breakfast is the region’s premier event honoring black male academic excellence. Since 1998, more than 7,000 African American males graduating from public and private high schools with a 3.0 or better grade point average have been hailed. Many have shared in the more than $13 million in scholarships announced at the event by colleges that have accepted them and by the Gates Millennium Foundation. 

The Scholars Breakfast is a part of the organization’s combined education/community initiatives efforts that include mentoring, school visitations and support of community educational efforts. James Gray, member of the Hampton City Council, is the president of the organization.

“We are extremely proud of each of the 703 students that were honored at the 21st 200+ Scholars Breakfast,” said Gray. “These young men have overcome many obstacles and excelled in the classroom. They deserve to be recognized by the community for their perseverance and commitment to academic excellence.”
