Langston University will celebrate its 115th anniversary at this year’s homecoming weekend, starting with the annual scholarship gala.
The seventh annual President’s Scholarship Gala on Oct. 12 will feature Grammy-nominated singer Brian McKnight, and LU alumnus and comedian “Jammin” Jay Lamont.
The gala, set to start at 7 p.m., will be at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City. Gala tables and tickets are available by contacting the Office of Development at 466-3232. Individual tickets for the McKnight performance are on sale now at www.langston.edu.
“Our goal is to raise scholarship dollars while also providing top-level entertainment for attendees of the seventh annual President’s Scholarship Gala,” says LU president Kent J. Smith Jr. “We are extremely pleased to present a singer of Brian McKnight’s caliber. He is known internationally as a star among stars, and we believe he will put on a great show for our annual gala.”
