Lula Bell Houston dedicated her entire 60-year career to serving and building relationships with Davidson students. This fall, a new on-campus resource center named Lula Bell’s will remove barriers to student success and provide enriching programs for all students.
“Students of color need Davidson and, just as importantly, Davidson needs students of color. In order for everyone to understand history and the roles we all have in building our future, we have to talk to one another and learn from our unique experiences,” said Tonya Keener. Davidson’s first Emergence Scholar, Obai Kamara ’17, will graduate this month.
The Hub@Davidson will connect Davidson students and faculty with entrepreneurs and innovators in a unique space. The project has received a boost with a gift from alumnus Ed Van Deman ’69 and his wife, Dr. Nancie Fimbel.
The Terry Program scholars form a cohort of students chosen for their potential for leadership and growth both on campus and in their careers and lives after Davidson.
