MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - You could call it a match made in heaven.
As LeMoyne-Owen College prepares for the start of homecoming, they're also preparing for the start of a new partnership.
Mt. Olive CME is partnering with LeMoyne-Owen to be a helping hand to students and faculty.
"They will provide whatever resources they can whether it's mentoring, whether it's financial support, whether it's a place where our students can come and worship - all of those things are very important to us," said LeMoyne-Owen President Andrea Miller.
The celebration kicked off with the LOC Homecoming court and a gospel choir.
Pastor Peris Lester said he thinks this is a great opportunity to invest in young people and cut down on crime.
"We recognize that education is expensive, but ignorance costs more," Lester said.
