DSU alumna Quincy Lucas and her passionate advocacy against domestic violence continued to draw accolades and recognition in the spring 2010 as she was honored by both the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) and the Delaware Multicultural and Civic Organization.
The MEAC presented Mrs. Lucas with its 2010 Distinguished Alumni Award during the MEAC Basketball Tournament in Winston-Salem, N.C. last March. She was honored along with other awardees selected from the other MEAC-member schools.
On May 8, the Delaware Multicultural and Civic Organization made Ms. Lucas one of five recipients of its annual Shofar Community Awards.
Both of the awards were in recognition of Mrs. Lucas and her organization Witney’s Lights, which works to promote domestic violence awareness and advocate for greater legal protection for victims. Ms. Lucas founded the organization in memory of her sister, Dr. Witney H. Rose, who was killed by her ex-boyfriend in 2003 in Baltimore.
