TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Pamela C. Zackery, program assistant for the Florida A&M University (FAMU) Division of University Relations office, was named the Campus Liaison Rookie of the Year by the National Urban League’s Black Executive Exchange Program (BEEP).
BEEP, now entering its 40th year of service to students at historically black colleges and universities, has reached more than 750,000 students to-date, with participation from more than 1,000 companies throughout its history. The Rookie of the Year Award, now in its second year, is given to those campus liaisons that have taken the lead in implementing BEEP on their campuses for the first time.
“My receipt of this award is both an honor and a privilege for me and on behalf of FAMU,” said Zackery, who recently hosted the program in conjunction with the school’s industry cluster activities this past spring. “FAMU has produced some of this nation’s leading business executives and I’m proud to assist in the endeavor. BEEP allows these executives to give back to their communities and other college campuses in order to make a real difference in the lives of many young people who are aspiring to become executives.”
“BEEP Central is proud to recognize Ms. Zackery -- and by extension Florida A&M University -- for her hard work in not only bringing BEEP back to campus, but also ensuring that it was a quality program,” said Mark V. Monteverdi, vice president of BEEP and Volunteer Initiatives for the League. “Partnerships like the one we have with FAMU define BEEP’s mission, which is to help our student leaders reach their potential by realizing that anything is possible.”
