As Miles Williams ’15 co-captained the Elon Phoenix football team over the past year, he was also conducting undergraduate research just a few miles away on the way hip hop music might help African-American children develop self-confidence and a sense of self.
Glenda Phillips Hightower, the first African-American to enroll as a full-time Elon student, and Eugene Perry '69, the first African-American to receive an Elon degree, will have formal portraits unveiled during a McKinnon Hall event.
The honorees are alumni from the past decade who have achieved major professional success, serve as difference-makers in their communities, and loyally support Elon as partners, advocates and investors.
