“I am very excited to represent Morgan State University at the 2013 U-CAN College Fair. It is never a disappointing trip when I recruit in Las Vegas. I am honored to share with the students all that Morgan State University can offer them along with the HBCU experience. It is important that the schools, parents and community know that the college representatives who participate in the U-CAN college fair care about the Las Vegas students attending college.”
