Event description
The Greensboro Chapter of the NCCU Alumni Association will host a Virtual Jazz Concert in memory of Mrs. Thomasenia Cotton.

About this Event

This year the Greensboro chapter of the NCCU Alumni Association lost a titan of Truth and Service both to the NCCU and the community at large. The passing of Mrs. Thomasenia Cotton has left an irreplaceable space in our hearts. Thomasenia was a dedicated member of the Philadelphia and Greensboro chapters of the Alumni Association, holding several leadership roles including Greensboro chapter secretary and at the national level parliamentarian. Thomasenia was also an inducted member of the Society of Golden Eagles and the Eagle Club for NCCU Athletics. In more recent years, Thomasenia organized and executed the annual NCCU Jazz dinner with her expertise in event management. Bringing community, Alumnae and Alumni together was a true passion of Thomasenia.

This year has had a profound impact on the direction, planning, and execution of the always anticipated NCCU Greensboro Chapter’s annual Jazz dinner. The goal of the event is to raise funds for the NCCU department of jazz studies and to facilitate necessary scholarships for Jazz majors. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to host this event in person. However, we believe the undertaking of contributing to the jazz studies department is critical to our mission and should be continued both to support our institution and to uphold the legacy of Thomasenia Cotton.

Our hope is that you will make a donation cementing your continued support of NCCU, the Greensboro Alumni Chapter, and also our beloved fallen eagle Thomasenia Cotton.
