On May 6, PGCPS will kick off graduation season celebrating the Class of 2021 for National College Signing Day — an annual opportunity for high school seniors to share their post-graduation plans!
Join us in honoring thousands of #FutureReady soon-to-be grads heading to college, the military and the workforce.
Assiata Kamagate, a student in the Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) program at Frederick Douglass High School, is eyeing a career in medicine.
She has already earned more than 50 college credits and will receive her Associate’s Degree in Applied Science along with her high school diploma next month through P-TECH. A Posse DC Scholar, she is headed to the University of Rochester this fall where she will major in brain and cognitive sciences as a pre-med major.
Not only is Assiata learning how to read, write and speak Korean, she is a self-taught visual motion graphic editor. She uses her skills to create projects that discuss many social issues such as gender discrimination and the effects of racial injustice on youth.
Her extracurricular activities include serving as president of the National Honor Society, captain of the Debate Team and a member of the varsity lacrosse team. In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with friends, learning new skills and watching medical-related dramas.
