On Sunday, Dec. 16, the annual black-tie Jack and Jill Beautillion was held at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel. Coordinated by the Denver chapter of Jack and Jill of America, the evening celebrated the "Power, Promise and Potential" of today's African-American teens, with 24 outstanding high school seniors honored during the event.
The Beautillion was established in 1983 as a way to honor college-bound African-American males who are seniors at Denver-area high schools. Those chosen have excelled in academics, community service, athletics and various other extracurricular activities.
