Faith Bradley Sherrod, South Carolina State University- c/o 2016, Economics
Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*
I am originally from South Carolina. My parents introduced me to the beloved world of The HBCU Experience. They attended Clafin College at the time and married after they graduated.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
My parents allowed me to make the final decision. They always said, “You will attend a HBCU even if it’s not Claflin”. I knew South Carolina State University was the HBCU for me because of the Prestigious Speech Language Pathology Department.
What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*
My experience at South Carolina State University, prepared me for the professional world and how to connect my talent with a grounded knowledge base.
I enjoyed and respected my experience so much that I enrolled both of my children in the universities Child Development and Labatory School for their early educational experience.
South Carolina State University for many years has been labeled, underrated, but has produced some of the most prestigious graduates and productive members of society. I am a proud HBCU graduate and if asked would I do it all over again the answer would be ABSOLUTELY!
