The University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service Center on Community Philanthropy recently received the 2016 Community Partner Award from Higher Purpose Co. in Clarksdale, Mississippi. The Center supported Higher Purpose Co.’s community empowerment program—Higher Purpose Academy—in its 2016 inception.
The program, which aims to engage minority millennials on topics such as racial equity, financial literacy, building your personal brand, and entrepreneurship, touched 200 individuals over four academies. Local, regional, and national speakers and presenters provided 75 hours of technical assistance to academy-goers.
