blog postsBlack History Month: Revive Awards CeremonyMar 2, 2020 9:15 am by firstname.lastname@example.orgTiara Beecham with Charese Jackson and Catherine Vincent.ImagesThe Revival Awards was held on Thursday, February 27. It is a new program collaborated between the BHM Student Planning Committee and the UIC's Chancellor's Committee for the Status of Blacks. The event offered students an opportunity to network with black alumni, faculty, and staff who matched with their own interests. Five receipts were presented with the History Maker award for their contributions to the community of UIC. One of the awards was honored to Tiara Beecham, Registration & Record Coordinator from UIC College of Nursing Office of Academic Programs. She was nominated for her contribution and efforts in engaging her coworkers, UIC community, great Chicago area, and her own community, Austin. Tiara seeks to impact the status of black student and staff in the workplace and in the university community. During Christmas, she actively led the department in the College of Nursing to collect items for the less fortunate. She had a huge success and had collected enough items to share with the Women and Children's division of the Pacific Garden Mission. In her recent book, "Little Girl Never Sit on a Man's Lap," Tiara describes the adversity she faced throughout her life and how overcoming those challenges led her to create her life goal of helping others and making meaningful contributions to the community. Congratulations to Tiara Beecham for all her acomplishments and the great contribution to the College of Nursing! The award recipients.
