Moet Hennessy USA ‘High Achievers’ Scholarships Donated to Medgar Evers College

In the spirit of providing a foundation to help develop future leaders of America, Moët Hennessy USA President Mark Cornell proudly announced his company’s donation of five full scholarships to Medgar Evers College, a four-year senior college in The City University of New York (CUNY) located in central Brooklyn.

The Moët Hennessy USA “High Achievers” Scholarships will be awarded to five qualifying high school students entering Medgar Evers College as freshmen for the fall 2009 academic year.

The four-year commitment from Moët Hennessy USA sets a criterion that includes entering with, and maintaining a grade point average of 2.75 or higher and declaring a major in Business, Marketing, or Communications.

Mark Cornell has said, “Dr. Jackson has served thousands. He has doubled the enrollment at the school, expanded the campus by developing bold plans, executed them brilliantly and, importantly, he has inspired a community!”

The Medgar Evers College’s mission is to develop and maintain high quality, professional, career-oriented undergraduate degree programs in the context of liberal education. The College has a commitment to students who desire self-improvement, a sound education, an opportunity to develop a personal value system, and an opportunity to gain maximum benefits from life experience and from their environment.

“On behalf of the Medgar Evers College students, faculty, and staff, I would like to thank Moet Hennessy for their continued commitment to the success of our institution,” said Dr. Edison O. Jackson, President of Medgar Evers College. “Our partnership with Moet Hennessy has been instrumental in helping us achieve our educational mission.”
