The Black McDonald’s Operators Association (BMOA) recently sponsored a collection of Chicagoland high school students to participate in college tours, visiting Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) across the southeast United States. In conjunction with Operation PUSH and the PUSH Excel program and Metropolitan Family Services and the Upward Bound program, the BMOA along with other community partners helped send nearly 150 local students on the tour during their Spring Break. April

13 – 20, students visited seven HBCUs including Fisk University, Tennessee State University, Kentucky State University, Morehouse College, Spelman College, Clark Atlanta University and Florida A&M University. The support of education in African American communities is a strategic pillar for the BMOA, which is why they chose to support the tours as well as sponsor some of their own local McDonald’s employees to attend.

“At McDonald’s we fully support providing our young people with opportunity through both employment and through educational initiatives like the 2019 HBCU College Tour,” says BMOA President Derrick Taylor.

“Support of this tour is just one of the ways that the BMOA attempts to give back to communities we serve. We hope the students have an enriching experience on the tour and that it will inform their decision to pursue higher education once they finish high school.”
