The Chamber was privileged to host a luncheon for the Fellows participating in the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders. The Fellows are attending an academic and leadership institute at Lincoln University (Missouri) The majority of Fellows have not previously spent significant time in the US, and the Fellowship forges new relationships between Africans and Americans, both at the host colleges and in the communities.
It is an honor that Lincoln University was selected as one of the host universities!
