Hosea Sanchez better known as Malik Wright from BET’s hit TV show the Game was the guest speaker at Triumph church’s first College Mixer.
Sanchez focused mainly on the importance of education when he addressed a crowd of students. He stressed the importance of staying in school, graduating and obtaining a degree.
Education was also the theme of the Panel discussion that was held at the event that included Sanchez and other speakers.
The Mixer also included a Divine Nine Greek step show that featured members of Kappa Alpha Psi, Omega Psi Phi and Phi Beta Sigma’s high school step team.
There was also a talent show and a performance from comedian Horace Sanders along with free food and prizes.
Students from universities and colleges across the state including University of Michigan, Michigan State University and Central Michigan University were all in attendance.
Along with students from further schools such as Grambling State University, Howard University and Morehouse College also attended the event.
The College Mixer was held on Friday May 18th at Triumph church’s east campus location.
Over 500 students came out to talk, eat and fellowship with each other.
“The Mixer was great, especially to be the first one,” said Triumph church member DaShanae’ Dozier. “I had a lot of fun meeting members of my church who attend different campuses.” Triumph Church continues to stress the importance of education by providing students with information and networking opportunities as well as spiritual growth.
