Last week, Ford delivered the Ultimate Homecoming Experience to the campuses of Spelman College and Morehouse College as part of Ford HBCU Drive2Greatness program. Over the course of six days, students, alumni and the Atlanta community were able to get up close and personal with the 2018 Ford Mustang and all-new Ford Expedition.
Ford’s presence at Morehouse and Spelman kicked off SpelHouse’s fashion show where students were able to engage with the Ford Mustang, alongside current Project Runway Season 16 contestant Kenya Freeman, who served as a judge.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, actor/TV personality Terrence J joined in on the activities by participating in the ‘Go Further with Ford: A Communication Expedition’ lunch and learn with journalism students and hosting the old school vs. new school DJ battle. Tuesday’s lunch and learn pushed students to Go Further with advice from Terrence J and other panelists including Satchel Jester, Editor/Upscale; Munson Steed, Founder/Rolling Out; Janee Bolden, Editor/Bossip; and D. Orlando Lebetter, Atlanta Falcons Beat Writer/Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“Those looking to get into the industry should first obtain all the knowledge that they can,” said Terrence J at the lunch and learn.
Throughout the remainder of the week, students and alumni had the opportunity to test drive the latest lineup of Ford vehicles, engage with entrepreneurs at the Go Further Empowerment Panel and tailgate with Ford before a special Morehouse football game and halftime show to commemorate their sesquicentennial.
