Hailing from Bethune Cookman University, Earl shared

“As a campus king, my most memorable contribution was when I sponsored a workshop for incoming freshman males on the fundamentals of leadership, manhood, and personal/professional development. One of the successful gains of this workshop was instructing the young males on how to tie a windsor knot and bow tie. In essence, this program was not only a transformative experience for myself, but it set the expectation for excellence and discipline in our young men throughout their matriculation on their journey to becoming a Bethune Man.”

The mentoring bonds that have been formed while I am on this platform will stay with me forever.

Meet Mister Edward Waters College, Jamal Bouie

Hailing from Edward Waters College, Jamal shared

“One of my most memorable contribution has been to be a steadfast, transparent leader on the college campus. Students know that they are able to communicate with me and know that I am just the average guy that was given a chance to lead the best student body in the world. However if I had to pinpoint one event I would acknowledge my "Kings Appreciation Day" where I highlighted staff on campus who impacts students daily that often go unnoticed.”

Meet Mister ECSU, Dequante Mckoy

Hailing from Elizabeth City State University, Dequante shared

“Being able to mentor and impact the lives of young men on my campus has been most rewarding experience. Along with volunteering at the local elementary schools to mentor and read to the youth. Currently I am a highs cool teacher and I feel that I have more impacted around the community by being able to reach the youth in the surrounding area. When I was young a had many women in my family instill a lot of character values in me, but not many males in my family. Growing up it impacted my life in many ways. I feel that I have an obligation to give back to the youth in any shape or form. There are so many misguide children in this world who just need someone to look up to. I feel that all the endeavors and obstacles I have faced in life makes me be that person they should look up to as a leader. Someone who actually wants to be there for them to listen to their problems and let them know they are not alone. In my opinion, these are my biggest and most valuable contributions as king of my campus that I have made. ”

Too many times we limit the multitude of talents we were gifted with. I feel this would be an amazing opportunity to highlight what we could achieve as we remove the barriers we impose on ourselves. Ultimately allowing everything we have to offer to be displayed to motivate all to shine as well.”

Meet Mister Tougaloo College (Mr. Loo), Houston Sneed

Hailing from Tougaloo College, Houston shared

“My most memorable contribution as a Campus King is certainly the fresh person move-in. On Saturday, August 10, 2019, I was granted the opportunity to mix and mingle with fresh persons from multiple backgrounds and their families. Their energy both empowered me and gave life to the campus. The freshmen young men inspired my "Tying the Tie Series". I could not help but notice their lack of campus involvement and lack of knowledge relating to matriculate throughout the institution and supporting facilities.”

Meet Mr. UAPB, Jalen Phillips

Hailing from University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, Jalen shared

“Although the school year hasn't been long started, I've learned that it's not the quantity of things that you do, but it's the quality of those things that matters the most. My first memorable contribution was a monetary donation to St. Jude's Children Hospital. We often say that our children are our future. That's why it's important that we invest in them, even at their lowest point. My next most memorable moment, was donation to the Hurricane Dorian victims. My heart goes out to the families who have lost loved ones due to this horrible tragedy. I was able to donate tissue, water, and money to help those families in need.”

Meet Mister UDC, Olude Akinleye

Hailing from University of the District of Columbia, Olude shared

“Other than establishing 3Kings, LLC on UDC campus, my most memorable contribution as a Campus King is me being myself. I realized that my character has some form of a contagious gravitational pull that constantly caused people to want to be around me. The transparency and positivity of my character has led to my ability to very easily foster bonds with students, staff, and other people. I have a certain "aura of positivity and comfort" people would say, because of how I am by nature. I always see the light in the darkest of situations, and always motivate and uplift staff and peers to be the best versions of themselves.”
