“My mentor is a graduate of Fisk University and she really inspired me to attend. Also, my passion for music led me to the Jubilee Singers. I wanted to become part of a legacy and better myself so that I can help carry it along.”
“My mother also gave a recount of her time at VSU and how wonderful it was. A few days later, I received a large envelope in the mail. I had been accepted to the nation’s first public HBCU and couldn’t have been more proud to attend.”
I decided to become a student at Bethune Cookman University after recieving a band scholarship to become apart of the Marching wildcats. without my scholarship I probably would not be apart of something as great as this legacy.
