Shaw University’s outgoing leader named HBCU female president of the year
Tashni-Ann Dubroy, who recently resigned after two years as president of Shaw University, takes one more notable memory with her as she moves into a top administrative post at Howard University this fall.
Dubroy was named female president of the year during the 2017 Historically Black Colleges and Universities Awards held Friday night. The ceremony capped the two-day HBCU Executive Media Training Institute put on by HBCU Digest in Washington, D.C.
“We will miss your #ShawUepic energy!” Shaw, which is also Dubroy’s alma mater, tweeted along with a photo of her holding the award.
Virginia State University’s Makola Abdullah took home male president of the year. Central State University of Ohio was named the 2017 HBCU of the year, out of a field of eight finalists that included both Shaw and N.C. Central University.
Elizabeth City State University’s other finalists were Brittney Lamb for female student of the year and Linda Hayden for female faculty member of the year.
Saint Augustine’s University had two finalists: Tia-Adana Belle for female athlete of the year and track and field for men’s team of the year.
Winston-Salem State University was also a finalist in the best social work program category.
