During February, TRIO/Student Support Services challenged Beaufort County Community College students to complete a Black history quiz. On Feb. 28, TRIO/SSS invited all students to a Black History Month celebration to reveal the answers to the Black History STAR Challenge Quiz and to share little known facts they discovered in completing the quiz. Questions from the quiz covered a variety of topics ranging from politics to sports. More than 40 students, including Early College High School students, accepted the challenge and completed the quiz.

At the celebration, TRIO students Jasmin Ebron, Roxanne Tate, Kiersten Zimmerman, Keisha Bonner and Courtney Zimmerman revealed the answers to the quiz. Students and staff shared the research or the facts that supported answers to the most difficult questions.

Students who completed the quiz with at least 75-percent accuracy were entered in a special drawing for prizes. Prize winners were:

First prize, a $25 Walmart gift card, went to Destiny Daniels; second prize, a $15 Subway gift card, went to Keisha Bonner; and third prize, a $10 BCCC College Grill gift certificate, went to Brianna Harris.

Tashawna Scott, TRIO student development coordinator, said, “We thank all who accepted the challenge. We appreciate the enthusiasm of the students who participated and congratulate the winners of the drawing.”
