March 16, 2020 – A Message from Excel Village Center for Learning:
Excel Village Center for Learning (dba Excel Village) is monitoring the updates of the rapidly and daily spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). As such, we made the difficult decision to cancel the April 25, 2020 Excel Village STEM-FAB Girls Power Summit, given the evolving nature of the virus. Recently, some Governors have declared the State of Emergency. Along with the State of Emergencies, travel restrictions imposed by companies attending the Summit, and the desire to keep health as a top priority, we have found it impracticable to hold the event. As such, we have canceled the April 25 Summit at UNCC Uptown Campus.
The purpose of our event was to provide half-day of learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Finance, Arts, and Business (STEM-FAB) for girls in grades 5th -12th in addition to announcing the recipient of the Excel Village & Crown Jewels (NC) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated HBCU Scholarship, to support winning futures. That purpose hasn’t changed. We will review other options for implementation at a later date, that may not be dependent on being physically present. As this event is one of our principal means of mentoring and paving a way for the next generation of girls, we are grateful for you, your passion and your donations. We will continue to work hard to bring you the unique events you love. Though it’s true that our April 25, 2020 event will no longer take place in the way that we intended, we continue to strive toward our purpose – creating winning futures and paving the way for the next generation of girls.
We appreciate the confidence you all have shown in our efforts, and we look forward to serving you in the near future.
Wishing everyone good health.
