This Saturday, Bethune-Cookman University student Ketrina Childs will be featured on the seventh annual “Ford Black College Quiz Game Show.’’
The show, a program that focuses on higher learning and African-American history, is now in local syndication. It will be airing in the Daytona Beach area on WRDQ on Feb. 9 at 1 p.m.
Childs is one of 12 students from historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) across the country who were selected to display their knowledge and skills of African-American History.
Childs came to B-CU from Inkster, Mich., to pursue a double major in Social Science Education and Theater Arts Performance.
During her time at B-CU, Childs has been active in TRA-CO-DRAM, B-CU’s theater organization and Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in education.
Upon graduation, Childs will pursue a career in secondary education.
“Being on the ‘Black College Quiz’ was a really exciting experience,” said Childs.
“Though it was a competition, I enjoyed meeting students from other HBCUs. I am proud to be a Wildcat, and I am looking forward to sending my future students to B-CU.”
Four first-place winners, one from each show, earns a prize of $5,000, $1,000. In addition, $500 in scholarship money is awarded to second- and third-place contestants in each half-hour episode.
