Black History Month- Pat Cleveland & Rick Williams

Date: 

Wednesday, February 28, 2018 -
6:30pm to 8:00pm

Location: 

Mount Laurel Campus, Votta Hall Auditorium

Guest Speakers American fashion model Pat Cleveland and 6ABC’s Rick Williams: Wednesday, Feb. 28 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Mount Laurel Campus in Votta Hall Auditorium. Discovered by Vogue Editor Carrie Donovan, Pat Cleveland’s modeling career had a bumpy beginning due the American standards of beauty in the 50s, 60s and early 70s and she was often turned down for jobs due to her diverse ethnic features and skin tone. She would eventually become known for her signature walk that disrupted the fashion runways. Her magnificent aura and beauty was photographed for feature covers and editorials of famous fashion magazines in the 70s, 80s and 90s. Rick Williams has kept viewers informed for more than 25 years as an anchor and reporter. For much of that time, he has (and  continues to) anchor the number-one rated Action News at Noon and Action News at 5 p.m. broadcasts. This event is sponsored in part by Bowman & Company, LLP and SML Construction, Inc.
