The banquet was officially named the Phillips-Perry Black Excellence Awards Banquet in 2006 in honor of Elon’s first black student, Glenda Phillips, and the first black graduate, Eugene Perry. Now known as the Phillips-Perry Black Excellence Celebration, the mission is to recognize, celebrate, and affirm students who excel in academics, leadership, internship, study abroad, research, and service-learning. The Center for Race, Ethnicity & Diversity Education remains committed to this mission by helping students become active participants in their personal growth and in the achievement of their educational objectives.
