The last two months of the spring semester have been an incredible time for DDCE. We held the final events of the 25th Annual Heman Sweatt Symposium on Civil Rights, including the Evening of Honors celebrating those honored with a Heman Sweatt Legacy Award. The evening was as memorable as the people we honored which included a number of the first African Americans to attend The University of Texas at Austin and several younger alumni who continued to push for equity for African American students on campus.

The 2nd Annual Asian American Community Leadership Awards was another memorable event this month, honoring some of the university’s most outstanding alumni and exceptional community members who have been leading Austin’s growing Asian and Asian American community—Austin’s fastest growing population.

As you read about our most recent events, we hope you will be encouraged to join us for upcoming events. Next up—the Neighborhood Longhorns Celebrity Golf Classic on June 8-9 at Barton Creek Country Club. This fundraiser is for a great cause—supporting the Neighborhood Longhorns Program which serves over 5000 students in 30 Title 1 schools in Austin. We hope to see you there!
