The Andrew Goodman Foundation (AGF) will recognize six Hidden Heroes at the Hidden Heroes Award Ceremony on Thursday, August 11 at 7 p.m. EST on Zoom.

Among the honorees is Prairie View A&M University Alumna and Lee’s Summit, Missouri native Evan Gross ‘22. Gross will receive the HBCU Service Award.

Awardees will be recognized for their commitment to ensuring college students on campuses nationwide are registered, informed and civically engaged during election seasons and beyond.

The HBCU Service Award is awarded to an Andrew Goodman Ambassador within the Foundation’s HBCU Cohort who shows exemplary leadership and involvement in the cohort. The student makes a significant contribution to a major project or operation on campus and performs special service to the university.

Evan Gross is a recent graduate from Prairie View A&M University with a B.A. in Communication and Media Studies and a minor in Sociology. Her passions include digital media, creative writing, music, and social justice, specifically as it relates to public health, racial equity, and voting rights. In her time as a student, she had the opportunity to work with both The Andrew Goodman Foundation as an Ambassador and Campus Vote Project as a Democracy Fellow, promoting civic engagement and championing student voting rights on her campus. Currently, Evan is preparing to take the LSAT and plans to attend law school in the spring, specializing in education or health law. She looks forward to continuing to work with AGF and supporting other student advocates as an alumna.
