To kick off graduation season, seniors from High Point High School who will continue their education at a Historically Black College or University (HBCU) were featured in a campaign by the U.S. Department of Education, White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges

The Initiative works with partners to increase the capacity and competitiveness of HBCUs to provide high-quality education to an increasing number of students.

“Morgan State University has a great psychology program, and I’m happy to say that I will be one of just three in my family to attend a university,” said Beatriz Alvarez. High Point senior Ja’Nayah Hines says she also chose Morgan State for its academic offerings and because “it’s just far enough away from to get a real taste of independence.”

Isha Kanu, who will study computer science at Coppin State University says she chose it for affordability, diversity of programs and because it felt like a good fit.

Future Benedict College biology major La’Shaun Cole said she selected her school based on academics and atmosphere. “I chose a HBCU to experience the culture and the people. It’s something I’ve wanted to be a part of since I was young.”
