The Milwaukee Community Journal is the largest African-American-owned and -operated newspaper in Wisconsin. The MCJ has been a strong advocate of academic excellence since its inception almost four decades ago.
This year’s scholarship brunch focused on honoring “Men who Empower Men,” including fathers, teachers, elected officials, pastors and other notable figures that help young men in the community transition to adulthood. Highlights of the program featured Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett’s greeting and a performance from the UWM Kappa Alpha Psi step group. Mikel Holt, the Milwaukee Community Journal’s co-founder and publisher, delivered a moving speech as the event’s keynote speaker. Additionally, the brunch allowed the community to recognize, thank and show appreciation for local students and their role models.

The firm has donated over $100,000 to the NAACP Scholarship Fund and supported many other organizations in the Greater Milwaukee area.
