The 2016 President’s Scholarship Ball featured a soulful and engaging performance by gospel/R&B artist and songwriter BeBe Winans. The singer was having so much fun on stage, he extended the performance an additional half-hour beyond the previously agreed upon 45-minute set.

Following the performance, DSU President Harry L. Williams presented Mr. Winans with the 2016 President’s Legacy Award.

Dr. Williams also presented DSU Community Partner Awards to former state Rep. Darryl Scott, alumna Carolyn Golden Hebsgaard, DSU Alumni Association President Sheila Davis, state Sen. Brian Bushweller and Dr. Rebecca Batson, recently retired dean of University Libraries.
