The 2012 Image Awards: The Quest to Freedom, Set for Feb. 4

2012 Image Awards

The Ferris State University student organization Black Leaders Aspiring for Critical Knowledge is set to welcome students, faculty, staff and the community to Williams Auditorium on Saturday, Feb. 4, for the 2012 Image Awards.

Doors open for the formal event at 6:30 p.m. and the awards show commences at 7 p.m.

The event honors students, faculty, staff and campus student organizations for their hard work and dedication to the Ferris community.

“It is important for people to attend and to show support for individuals who strengthen our campus with their leadership and community service,” said Robert Johnson, grand president of B.L.A.C.K and committee head for the 2012 Images Awards. “Being in attendance shows such leaders that we appreciate them and hopefully this also will motivate them to continue to be extraordinary people.”

This year’s theme focuses on Black History Month.

“Because the Image Awards is held in February, we decided to make this year’s theme significant to Black History Month,” Johnson said. “Thus, one of our members, Anthony Brock, suggested the title, ‘The Quest to Freedom.’”

The 2012 theme features significant moments in black history.

“This year, the Ferris community can expect to see several depictions of the ‘Quest to Freedom’ from Africa to present day America, along with talented singers, dancers and poets,” Johnson said.
