In an attempt to learn more about their higher education opportunities, 20 Bellport High School juniors and seniors attended the Malcolm Bernard Historically Black Colleges and Universities College Fair, held in New York City. During the visit, 11 students received on-site acceptances to one or more of the nation’s 100 most respected HBCUs.
