On Friday, November 20, Ambassador Ron Kirk served as the keynote speaker for the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) North Texas Scholarship Luncheon that benefitted students and five UNCF member institutions in Texas, such as Paul Quinn College in Dallas.
During his keynote address, Ambassador Kirk stressed that getting an education will help today's youth become more marketable and will also help make America a world leader in areas such as manufacturing, commerce and trade. Always focused on its motto, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste,"® the UNCF plays a critical role in enabling more than 60,000 students each year to attend college and get the education they want and deserve.
