No in-person events allowed? No problem, for NEED…
The NEED Annual Scholarship Dinner was “virtual” this year, the year 2020, the year never to be forgotten.
July 16 was the date for the high school seniors you see on this page, who received scholarships from NEED.
In addition to the student scholarships, the Courier’s J.L. Martello, who “attended” the virtual event, reports that Larry Anderson Jr. announced the drum call, and it was performed by Dr. Anthony Mitchell and the Ibeji Drum Ensemble. Justin Jiggetts was the spoken word artist, Marshall Anderson did a mime performance, and the Tubby Daniels Band also entertained.
Lifetime Achievement Awards went to Judge Cheryl Allen, Dr. Shirley Biggs and Dr. Jerome Taylor. The NEED Legend of Pittsburgh Award went to the Honorable J. Warren Watson.
