On February 24, 2018, National Collegiate Prep celebrated its 6th Annual Sankofa Ball. Sankofa is a time to introduce the seniors to the community as accomplished ladies and gentlemen. It was a coming out party for the seniors, as they were presented to their friends and families and treated like kings and queens.
National Prep is the only school in Washington, DC that host “cotillion-style” galas for their students as a reward for their academic and leadership achievements. One out of many significant goals achieved was completing the Rites of Passage Empowering Students Program (R.O.P.E.S), a 12-week life skills class.
In conjunction with the seniors’ important night was an award honoring the 100 Black Men of Greater Washington, DC, which received the first James Howard Vance III Community Service Award, an award that was renamed in honor of the late journalist. Ivory Johnson, 100 Black Men of Greater Washington, DC President, graciously accepted the award on behalf of the organization. The 100 is proud of the work it is doing with National Collegiate Prep. and will continue to support and inspire NCP students for many years to come.
