The Delta Eta Boulé Foundation presented the Denver offices of Morgan Stanley with an award this month in recognition of the firm’s continued support of the scholars of Delta Eta Boulé.
“We’re extremely thankful and blessed to receive this type of unwavering, full-fledged support from Morgan Stanley,” says Al Cooper, Sire Archon of Delta Eta Boule. “We Archons are especially appreciative of Clarke Octigan and his unyielding commitment to Delta Eta Boule’s vision for large-scale community impact. We want to continue building our program and touching the lives of even more African American males in the Denver Metro area.”
Currently in its fourth year of renewal, Morgan Stanley’s partnership with the organization has funded Delta Eta Boulé scholarships for many scholars, as well as professional development training. This year, Morgan Stanley donated $24,000 toward the scholarship program.
Delta Eta Boulé supports 34 students in top colleges around the nation such as Yale, MIT, Santa Clara University and the University of Colorado Boulder through scholarships, mentorships, internships and professional development seminars. Delta Eta Boulé is the Denver chapter of Sigma Pi Phi, the oldest African American fraternity in the United States.
