Falcons are part of the Great 48!

Four Saint Augustine’s University students have been selected to participate in the 25th Annual Honda Campus All‐Star Challenge National Championship Tournament from April 12 to April 16 at Honda’s headquarters in Torrance, Calif. The students are part of the Great 48 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) that will compete for a $50,000 grant.

Honda Campus All‐Star Challenge is a knowledge game of quick recall for America’s HBCUs. Now in its 25th year, more than $7 million in grants have been awarded by Honda to participating HBCUs and nearly 100,000 students in 22 states have participated.

The SAU team consists of Antwoine Coleman Jr., a junior majoring in history; Devin J. Carlos, a freshman majoring in engineering; Cianna C. Fisher, a sophomore majoring in fine arts; and Charles Taylor, a junior majoring in psychology.

“The journey started at the beginning of the school year and has included long hours of hard work, practice and study, in addition to the regular academic course load,” said Mr. Stephan Morikawa, assistant vice president for Corporate Community Relations, American Honda. “We look forward to greeting the Great 48 in Torrance in April.”
