Once again, we would like to thank all within and around the Oxon Hill community and those community partners who provided support and donations toward our Silent Auction that was held on Tuesday, December 9, 2014. The Friends of the Oxon Hill Library were very proud and honored to meet everyone who participated in the event and are sure that our "Home for the Holidays" event, featuring pianist Al Davis was enjoyed by one and all. There were lots of wonderful items donated for the event.

Southwest DC Youth Attend HBCU Fair

By: Vyllorya A. Evans

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Fair at the Oxon Hill Library in Oxon Hill, Md. on Wednesday, Feb. 25. The event was sponsored by Friends of Oxon Hill Library. The event provided an opportunity for PerChaya Hardison to complete an application for South Carolina State University.  The application fee was waived during the fair. PerChaya graduated from Wilson High School in 2014. After taking a year off, she is making plans to enter college in the fall. She was excited to have the opportunity to speak to a representative from the college. She has also applied to West Virginia State. LaVance Parks is a junior at Wilson High School with an interest in attending Gallaudet University after he graduates. He wants a career that will allow him to use his sign language skills. He was able to speak with a person who had worked at Gallaudet and encouraged him to pursue his dream.  The Friends of Oxon Hill Library wanted to celebrate and support Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) during Black History Month. There were representatives and materials from the following schools: Virginia State University; Virginia Union University; Benedict College; University of Maryland, Eastern Shore; Morgan State University; Tuskegee University; and South Carolina State University. The youth were escorted by ANC Commissioner Rhonda Hamilton and Co-Chair of SWNA’s Education Task Force, Vyllorya A. Evans.
