On Wednesday, February 19, the Stillman School’s very own Daniel Brown was honored by the Black Student Union (BSU) during their annual event, A Tribute to Black Men. Every February, the organization holds the event in honor of Black History Month.
The Black Student Union was founded at Seton Hall University in 1967. The organization’s purpose is to provide unity within the African American community at Seton Hall University. BSU prides themselves in community outreach, education, and cultural enlightenment.
Each year the women of the organization collectively decide which males are going to be honored.
Brown, a sophomore sport management major, also a member of the Leadership Development Honors Program, Black Men of Standard, and a Martin Luther King Scholar, was awarded the Mr. Congeniality Award.
The award is given to one male that always goes out of his way to brighten everyone else’s days and make them happy. According to Brown, he did not expect to receive the award because he naturally enjoys making others happy and always tries to maintain a positive attitude.
Brown exclaimed, “It was great to be given this award and it is nice to be recognized for my good sense of character!”
Some of the other awards given that night included, the Rising Star Award, Man on the Move Award, and Gentleman of the Year, which was awarded to Stillman student and Alpha Kappa Psi brother, Oluwaseun Oke.
According to Brown, the event was very well organized and everyone had a great time. All of the members were dressed in semi-formal attire and were escorted to their seats by one of the female members. Food and drinks were then served and the evening concluded with the award ceremony.
“The night was a huge hit and everyone had a great time,” announced Brown.
