(Vallejo, California – February 16, 2016) – As part of California State University's system-wide Super Sunday initiative, Cal Maritime President Tom Cropper will speak at Old Path Miracle Cathedral Church of God in Christ on February 21.
During Super Sunday, CSU leaders, including the chancellor and trustees visit more than 100 predominantly African American churches across the state to deliver a message that encourages young people to pursue a higher education. More than 10,000 church congregants receive this important message each year, including resources from the CSU to help them foster a college-going culture at home.
Now in its eleventh year, Super Sunday has expanded to include a companion college fair event called Super Saturday. The two events link the CSU with church partners with the goal of improving college preparation and graduation rates of African American students at the CSU.
President Cropper will speak at 11:15. Old Miracle Cathedral Church of God in Christ is located at 500 Arkansas Street in Vallejo.
