At a conference in Philadelphia, the University of North Texas NAACP chapter took home national awards in the youth and college division for Voter Empowerment, Economic Empowerment and Chapter of the Year.
NAACP President Brittany Burnam, Assistant Treasurer Cambria Jordan and Secretary Tarryn Oliver attended the conference. Burnam, who was re-elected for a second term, said the UNT chapter hadn’t won Chapter of the Year since 2010.
“These awards wouldn’t have been possible without the whole team,” Burnam said. “Our members, our supporters — we’ve had a lot of people who’ve helped us along the way.”
