BEYA 7th Annual Stars and Stripes Dinner

Friday, February 17, 2012 - 19:00 to 21:30

The Stars and Stripes Dinner is to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) by providing opportunity and exposure to STEM leaders to increase interest in and passion for STEM by mentoring those in STEM for a greater chance for success and highlighting the contributions of Blacks in support of nation and military. The Stars and Stripes Dinner started as a Sunday-morning networking breakfast. Today it's grown to be a highlight of the conference. It's now a full dinner event, hosted in rotation by each of the services. This year the Marine Corps is the lead service. Commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen James F. Amos, will be the keynote speaker. LtGen Coleman, USMC (Ret.), is the Stars & Stripes Committee Chairman. For complete details, please visit
