    CLEVELAND, OH – June 10, 2017 – The National Greek Awards™ 2017 #GraduatingGreeks Feature Week™ recently concluded, and it was the most successful one to date.  Greek-life graduates from all over the U.S. submitted some of the most telling and beautiful photos showcasing their pride in succeeding at one of the most difficult things to accomplish in an industrialized society: Earning a college degree.  

    This year’s GGFW Contest included over 100 contestant photos from several Greek-letter organizations from around the country.  Some of those images even include the babies of graduates, which they used as inspiration to make it through extraordinarily trying times during their undergraduate tenure.

    I am always proud to see anyone accomplish something positive, especially something with a high level of difficulty that is also life-changing,” said National Greek Awards™ Founder and Executive Director Tim Carthon, “But to see my fellow Greek-life family members do so, especially with the reputation of Greek-letter organization members in general not being at the height at which I believe it deserves to be, that’s particularly satisfying.  And it definitely doesn’t hurt to win a nice $100 prize on the side, courtesy of Fiverr.com, for that accomplishment.

    This year’s contest winner is a graduate of George Mason University and entered what may go down as one of the greatest Greek life photographs ever taken.  And, like so many higher education students, she also has an all-too familiar pre-undergraduate story to tell, as college is an expensive experience in America.

    Je’nell Hubbard; 2017 #GraduatingGreeks Feature Week™ 3rd place finisher, member of Alpha Kappa Alpha® Sorority, Inc., and graduate of Kennesaw State University.

    Graduating college in my family in general was a big thing, not just in my immediate family,” says Amanda McLeroy, a member of Sigma Gamma Rho® Sorority, Inc. and the 2017 Graduating Greeks Feature Week™ Contest winner, “Though we didn’t have much, and I knew we didn’t have much, (my parents) still scraped together every last penny that they had to make sure that I was able to go to a college out of state because they knew that’s what I really wanted to do with myself.

    However, the triumph (and some good fortune) through her struggle are part of the beauty of Amanda’s story.

    When I won I was initially shocked because it was such a close race. I didn’t think I would win in all honesty,” she said, “So many great things had been happening to me over the course of the year, and I was overjoyed to add this to the list.”

    Ms. McLeroy has a “pretty complex” future planned as well.  Watch her story below.

    Colin Kaepernick KAPsi 02


    There comes a time in a person’s life where they’ve had enough.  Whether it’s being financially unstable or being in an unstable and unhealthy relationship, it’s a point that one reaches where a fork in the road comes and they take the road marked ‘Exit.’

    Colin Kaepernick finally reached his fork in the road.

    If you didn’t know who Colin Kaepernick was, you probably do now.  He’s a member of Kappa Alpha Psi® Fraternity, Inc.; one of the 5 historically Black Greek-letter fraternities within the National Pan-Hellenic Council, and a professional athlete who plays for a team within one of the four primary sports leagues in America: The NFL®.

    This league is so gargantuan in America that its flagship championship game is the 4th largest sporting event ever watched in world history.  The National Football League, the league’s official name, has so much power and wealth that it even fought off facts of what 200 lb – 400 lb men colliding with one another at great speeds and with devastating force did and does to its players, particular their brains.  They even made a movie about it.

    The NFL®, in essence, did the same thing that the tobacco industry did when it came to what tobacco did and does to its customers(CLICK HERE to Read More…).

    Comments Off on Fiverr® and GBS Bureau Member Reach Extended ‘Inner-City Education’ Deal

    Fiverr Sponsors Six (6) Workshops


    CLEVELAND, OH – January 25, 2016 – The Greek All-Star™ Awards™ today announced that its Executive Director and Great Black Speakers Bureau member Tim Carthon and Fiverr® International, an online marketplace that offers creative and professional services starting at $5, have reached a short-term multi-city, multi-workshop sponsorship deal.

    Over the next three (3) months, Fiverr® will be the Title Sponsor for six (6) of Carthon’s exclusive SBI Workshops™; a business infrastructure workshop specifically and uniquely designed to swiftly help aspiring inner-city entrepreneurs streamline the creation and building of their businesses.

    Right now, the job market is very frustrating out there for so many people, so I’m pleased that Fiverr® has taken a vested, extended interest in inner-city communities through my Startup Business Infrastructure Workshop,” said Tim Carthon, GASA Executive Director and founder of the SBI Workshop™,  “This gives residents an opportunity to take control of their career destinies through not just building businesses from within their inner-city ranks, but doing so in the most convenient, most cost-effective manner.  Hey, who doesn’t have $5.00 to invest in completely and positively changing their future, right?

    The $5.00 refers to the current sponsored cost to attend three (3) of Carthon’s previous four (4) Fiverr®-sponsored SBI Workshops™; an ode to his sponsor Fiverr’s starting cost of services at Fiverr.com, where virtually all of their 3M+ services start at just $5.00.

    He also recently created a public school version of his exclusive workshop called Tim Carthon’s SBI Workshop™ for Students, which is to be primarily funded by the school district or the individual schools at which he speaks until sponsorship can be secured.

    As far as the new, six-part extended education sponsorship deal with Carthon and Fiverr®, Carthon calls it his “C.O.E.T.” (Carthon Ohio Education Takeover), which he says will help him begin the indirect restructuring of the Ohio education system.

    The first of Tim Carthon’s next six (6) SBI Workshops™ is being presented by Columbus-based event partner BLACK CENTRAL™ and is scheduled for Saturday, February 20, 2016, from 9am-4pm EST at the H.U.B. Community Development Corporation on 1336 E. Main Street in Columbus, OH (43205).

    When we build a bridge to one another and dedicate our lives to the uplift(ing) of our people, then the dye is set for us to have and maintain true economic freedom,” says Asad Z. Shabazz, President and Founder of the H.U.B. Community Development Corporation.

    The remaining five (5) events are tentatively scheduled to be held in Akron, Dayton, Cincinnati, Springfield, and Canton.  You can see up-to-date event information, enter his next $100 event giveaway contest, book Tim Carthon to speak at your next event, and register for his upcoming Columbus SBI Workshop™ now at SBIWorkshop.com.

    Bloggers Wanted - 1000


    CLEVELAND, OH – January 20, 2016 – The Greek All-Star™ Awards™ today announced the launching of its Contributing Writers Guild.  The GASA Contributing Writers Guild is a group of individual, independent writers who are members of eligible Greek-letter organizations from around the world.  The CWG is designed to put a spotlight on unseen, passionate writers, with that passion being used to help educate the public on important local, national, and international subject matters, no matter how big to some or small to others those subject matters may be.

    There are a multitude of amazing, independent writers out there whose works aren’t able to be appreciated by the viewing public simply because of audience reach,” says Tim Carthon, National Greek All-Star™ Awards™ Executive Director, “With our new Contributing Writers Guild, we are now able to help writers who are members of eligible Greek-letter organizations expand their audience using our extended Greek-Life network as their new starting point.  After which, it’s off to the reader races for them.  New content for us plus new readers for them equal a win for us both, and a win for the viewing public.”

    CWG Members’ writings will be submitted and featured on GreekAllStars.com weekly.  The first five (5) CWG Members have already been approved, two (2) of which have submitted their first pieces to be featured this week: Anthony B. Mitchell and Tavon Harris, both proud members of the first historically African-American social Greek-letter organization Alpha Phi Alpha® Fraternity, Inc.

    To become a National Greek All-Star™ Awards™ Contributing Writer, applicants must fit both a specific Greek-letter organization membership and writing skills criteria.  If you currently have a blog and are interested in becoming a member of the GASA Contributing Writers Guild, you can APPLY HERE.

  • My Racist MLK Day
    Comments Off on My Racist MLK Day

    By Tim Carthon (Blog #28: Racism)


    COVER PHOTO 2


    Today, my company was suppose to put out a press release about how we are helping aspiring writers, who are members of an eligible Greek-letter organization, to expand their reader base by joining forces with the National Greek Awards™.  I was really looking forward to sharing that with all of my Greek-Life friends and colleagues.  Sadly, a temporary cloud decided to rear its ugly, but not unfamiliar head, and I felt it necessary to first shine a light on and through that darkness.

    I cannot remember their name, but there was a comedian who said that yes, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was all about non-violence, but if you drove down any street named after him, there would definitely be some violence going on.

    Unfortunately, it seems the same goes for racism on any MLK Day.

    I’ve noticed over the years how racism seems to get turned up on the day of one of the most non-violent, prominent figures in American history.  It is as though the privileged feel attacked when they are reminded of the atrocities of slavery, genocide, and oppression done by their ancestors and the American economic, political, judicial, and ‘law enforcement’ systems that both directly and indirectly perpetuate those atrocities to this day.  And those of the privileged who are fueled to the fullest by the depths of bigotry and misdirected rage seem to use…(CLICK HERE to Read More…).

  • “Leonardo DiCaprio Wins His 1st Oscar®”: Future Words Born from ‘The Revenant’
    Comments Off on “Leonardo DiCaprio Wins His 1st Oscar®”: Future Words Born from ‘The Revenant’

    By Tim Carthon (Blog #27: Entertainment)


    Leonardo DiCaprio 005 (The Revenant)

    Screenshot from 20th Century Fox’s award-winning movie “The Revenant,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio


    I saw The Revenant this week.  Allow me to break this down for you directly and swiftly:

    1. Leonardo DiCaprio is one of probably the ‘Top 10 Best Actors’ to ever live, and I do NOT say that lightly.  Maybe you all didn’t hear me…
    2. Leonardo DiCaprio is one of probably the ‘Top 10 Best Actors’ to EVER live.
    3. Initially, I thought he’d win an Oscar® for this role, until I saw the Danish Girl previews, then I thought to myself: “Nope.  Leo’s gonna lose another one.  They usually give it to someone who they feel steps completely outside of what they consider to be their ‘comfort zone’ and with whom they severely empathize as that character. A transgender woman?  Yeah, they’ll probably screw Leo AGAIN this year.”
    4. I told that to my good man Jamole Callahan, a fantastic child welfare/foster care youth advocate and motivational speaker, after he said that Leo might win what I call his ‘Eleanor‘ this year; a fitting name, seeing as though Leo has done everything else to win an Oscar® except steal it.
    5. I am super busy, but Leonardo DiCaprio is my favorite actor and I’d been thinking about Jamole and my conversation, so I decided to watch The Revenant.


    I now believe this is Leo’s year…finally.

  • Democratic Socialism for Dummies
    Comments Off on Democratic Socialism for Dummies

    By Tim Carthon (Blog #26: Politics)


    Beernie Sanders on Socialism


    If you don’t know the non-Wikipedia, non-right-wing-propaganda-demonization definition of the word “Socialism,” then I suggest you drink a tall glass of shut the heck up, please.

    Too harsh?

    Forgive me, but I have an extremely high level of disdain for ignorance, especially when it’s purposeful.  I find that purposeful ignorance exudes cowardice, and when I look at the right-wing base, all I see is cowardice.

    Anyone who is willing to just take what someone says without even thinking about researching it, let alone actually doing it, all because it elicits a strong emotional response, is an intellectual coward.  In my opinion, this is the right-wing base.  Their “leadership” publicly lies on a level I haven’t seen since the Bush 43 years, and their base just sucks it up as if it’s truth.  Then they directly contract media propaganda machines like Fox “News” to reinforce the lies through repetition for weeks and months, but with added key buzzwords:

    • Socialism
    • “Unfettered” Capitalism
    • Oligarchy
    • Communism

    These particular buzzwords are specifically used to evoke a particular emotional response from their massively-ill-informed base.  Democratic socialism is calculatingly-demonized while unfettered capitalism is pushed by the rich and powerful as the ‘gold standard’ of running a country economically.  So, for the easily manipulated, let’s discuss the actual definition of all of these terms right now(CLICK HERE to Read More…).

    Since Oct., Carthon has held workshops in Cleveland, Ohio at the Carthon Conservatory, in Detroit, Michigan where he teamed up with presenting partner Developing K.I.D.S., and in Warrensville Heights, Ohio where he held three (3) workshops at the 13th Annual HBCU College Fair.  The next SBI Workshop™ will be presented by the Toledo-based performing arts company My5tery Music™, held at the Frederick Douglass Community Center, 1001 Indiana Ave, Meeting Room 2 (3rd Floor), in Toledo, OH 43697, on Sat.

  • Racial Injustice Protests Win. University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe Resigns
    Comments Off on Racial Injustice Protests Win. University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe Resigns

    By Tim Carthon (Blog #25: Race Relations)


    Racism 010


    The Students spoke, and the University listened.  University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe has now resigned.

    This resignation comes after several racially-charged incidents occurred at the university.  Just recently in September, the president of the MSA spoke on his Facebook® page about how he was called racial slurs while all he was doing was walking across campus.

    I really just want to know why my simple existence is such a threat to society,” said Peyton Head, president of the Missouri Students Association and member of Alpha Phi Alpha® Fraternity, Inc., the first historically black collegiate social Greek-letter organization.

    Well Mr. Head, the state of Missouri has a well known history of racism, so your simple existence being such a threat has a very simple answer.

    Bred racism.

    This history was seemingly solidified by what occurred at the beginning of the following month when Legion of Black Collegians members were called the N-word while rehearsing for the school’s yearly homecoming festivities.

    Think that was bad?
