Four distinguished young men will be presented to society on Saturday, April 2nd 2021 at the beautiful campus of California State University, in the new Santos Manuel Student Union North building. This year marks the 54th Beautillion Ball featuring the theme “Young Men Striving For Excellence”.
The Beautillion Program was started in the Inland Empire out of concern for the future and survival of the young black men in the community in which they live and serve. High school seniors who participate in the program are known as Knights. This program is designed to help young men who are seniors in high school prepare for college through the solicitation of ads, leadership development, accountability, responsibility, etiquette, attire for all occasions, spiritual growth, public speaking, and community service. At the conclusion of the program one young man will be recognized “Sir Knight”. Other awards are given for academics and other achievements. This year our Knights are eager to earn this prestigious title as well as join the myriad of doctors, lawyers and business professionals that have embarked upon this ritual in the past. To date, we have given out approximately 2.5 million dollars in scholarships to our college bound young men.
