Virginia Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on April 15.

April 5, 2019 – The Tom Joyner Foundation is recognizing Virginia State University (VSU) as the April 2019 School of the Month.

The foundation, formed by the nationally syndicated radio personality, chose Virginia State University as part of its on-going effort to assist these institutions in broadening and strengthening their efforts to raise money to help keep students attending HBCUs.

As one of the Tom Joyner Foundation ‘Schools of the Month’, VSU will be promoted by the Tom Joyner Morning Show and receive those funds raised from listeners, alumni and other interested parties that month. The show, aired in more than 90 markets around the country, reaches more than 10 million people via its various media platforms.

The Tom Joyner Foundation’s primary mission is helping to keep students enrolled in Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs.) Since 1998, the foundation, chaired by nationally syndicated radio personality Tom Joyner, has raised in excess of $65 million to help keep students enrolled in black colleges, has assisted more than 29,000 students and worked with more than 100 HBCUs. The Foundation announces the “Herc Scholars” who are distinguished male students at each ‘School of the Month’. The organization’s largest annual fundraiser is its “Fantastic Voyage”™, which is an activity-filled ‘party with a purpose’.
