Dillard Notable #5 of 2017: Miss Dillard & the Ebony Campus Queens

I believe the December/January issue will highlight the top 10, but I think this is a great move by Ebony. Sure, it is great that our queen made the top 10, but I think all of the schools being shown is really the way to go.
So #5 is notable not just for Dillard, but for Ebony Magazine too!
