Each participant received certificates of participation for attending the weekend retreat sessions held on Saturday, August 8, 2009 to Sunday, August 9, 2009. Lessons and activities focused on the contributions of African American and African women to the world, history, spiritual and moral development, self concept and relationships with others, leadership development, academic excellence, college preparation, career planning, financial literacy, and fitness, health and nutrition.
This year the girls received a special treat by having received a dance lesson from Kim Gadlin, Office of Black Student Affairs Coordinator of Student Leadership Programs, as well as lessons conducted by members Tonia Causey-Bush, Jenise Earl-Bush and Akua Maat, and volunteers from Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
