WINTER PARK, Fla. — Florida Business Leader John Crossman was invited to the U.S. Capitol to participate in an upcoming congressional bipartisan event – 6th Annual STEAM Day of Action – as an expert panelist on March 29. STEAM education is an approach that combines Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.
The real estate entrepreneur, author and speaker on career and diversity was invited to the advocacy event by the Bipartisan HBCU Caucus founded by Congresswoman Alma Adams.
Crossman is called upon as the expert on creating HBCU Endowments. He will join two other panelists: Cheryl Evans of the American Chemistry Council, the expert on HBCU STEAM education pipelines and programming, and Professor Easter of the American Institute of Architecture, an expert on success stories of STEAM Education.
Crossman’s father Ken Crossman was a popular pastor and notable civil rights leader. His family has established numerous endowed scholarships at HBCUs throughout the Southeast. He has spent the past two decades as a servant leader for his community providing career opportunities for diverse students and young professionals.
“It’s a huge honor to join this bipartisan caucus with our nation’s leaders who unite in advocating for the benefits of investing in HBCUs,” said Crossman.
Among the goals of the event – that begins with a 1:30 luncheon in Room HC-5 and opening remarks by Representative Adams – are to discuss the various successes in creating investments in STEAM Education pipelines; the role that HBCUs play in creating a more diverse workforce and identifying best practices and benefits of investing in HBCUs and the transformative power the investment will have on the national workforce.
