Norfolk, Va. — March 10, 2010 — MinorityMBAs.com, the leading job board connecting high-performing minority MBA job seekers to hiring managers committed to diversity recruiting, is the corporate sponsor of an annual fundraiser benefiting Right Angle: A Noble Network program designed to give high-achieving high school students a taste of what college is like before they graduate from high school.
Right Angle is hosting its ninth annual “Taste of College” event on March 19, 2010, beginning 7 p.m. at Galleria Marchetti, 825 W. Erie Street in Chicago. The annual event serves as the organization’s largest fundraiser. Alumni, current students of the program, and supporters will enjoy an evening of March Madness including a silent auction, open bar, games and food.
Owen Griffin, MinroityMBAs.com founder and CEO says, “At our core, we are committed to rewarding and supporting individuals who pursue opportunities for continued education. To be able to partner with a non-profit organization that also does this so well, from high school age until after graduation and then into college, is something really special and we are glad to be able to support Right Angle in this way.”
Noble Network CEO and Right Angle founder Michael Milkie agrees, “The whole intent of this program is to get kids who otherwise might not go to college excited about that possibility. After a summer at a college campus, these students gain the confidence to reach for college and earning a college degree becomes an achievable goal. So, we are thankful to have MinorityMBAs.com on board as a corporate sponsor for this year’s event.”
