Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*
I’m from Frankfort KY home of Kentucky State University. My parents and aunt both went to HBCU’s.
Miss KSU ’95
Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*
I wanted to be around like minded people. I went to a predominantly white high school and I excelled, I wanted a different environment for college.
