More than 220 guests flooded the lawn at the historic Alumni House at Lincoln University on June 20, 2015 for the second annual Chairlady’s Garden Party. Board of Trustees Chairwoman Kimberly Lloyd ’94 hosted the event to benefit the university’s student scholarships.
Guests represented class years from the 1950s through current Lincoln students and members from several Alumni Association of Lincoln University chapters.
While the Chairlady’s Garden Party’s main purpose was to raise scholarship funds for students, the event also provided an opportunity for attendees to display sartorial southern charm. There was no shortage of ladies wearing hats, gloves and pearls nor men wearing seersucker and linen suits or cool breeze shirts and slacks. The Parade of Hats was a colorful and festive display of style and creativity.
Guests had the opportunity to visit a curated art exhibit of Zimbabwe Shona stone sculptures by Colin Thompson ’73 at the Ware Center on campus.
We are grateful for our alumni, student, and staff volunteers who helped to make this event successful. It was a beautiful event that truly captured the Lincoln spirit.
We want to thank our generous sponsors for showing their commitment to supporting the students we serve at Lincoln University. Their gifts are truly an investment in our future.

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – Lincoln alumnus Takeyah Young ’99 was recently named Interim Director of Alumni Relations for Lincoln University. Young, who assumed her role on June 1, replaced Rita Dibble, who departed the position to become Assistant Vice President for Advancement at Mansfield University.
“Lincoln was very instrumental in teaching me about scholarship, leadership, community, and connection,” Young said. “I am appreciative of the administration’s confidence in my ability to lead. Serving in Alumni Relations is an opportunity to contribute to Lincoln University at an institutional level and help advance our legacy. I look forward to supporting the Office of Alumni Relations in becoming a resource to help alums better themselves, the University, and the world.”
In addition, Young is the founder of Core Connection Lifestyle, a small lifestyle and human potential business that develops and provides wellness and health solutions through consulting, coaching, and training. Working with individual, corporate, non-profit, and government entities, she creates in-person and online programs and events designed to draw awareness to navigating health and lifestyle challenges.
She also maintains a 15-year yoga practice and served as an Adjunct Professor of Mathematics at Howard County Community College and the University of the District of Columbia –Community College for six years.
Formerly a part of the LASER (Lincoln Advanced Science and Engineering Reinforcement) Program while at Lincoln, she received her bachelor’s degree in physics with a minor in Japanese and mathematics in 1999 and then a master’s degree in engineering from the University of Maryland at College Park in 2006. In addition, she received training and certifications in project management, coaching, leadership, and supervision.
A speaker, entrepreneur, and “fixer,” Young has been featured in Black Enterprise, Dyana Valentine, The Brand New Mommy, Eco-Beautiful Weddings, South Florida Times, The Miami Times, and All About the Pretty.
