Aaron Washington, a graduating senior at Hampton University, will put his education into action this summer by launching a career in community organizing with the Direct Action and Research Training (DART) Center.
The DART Center is a national network of congregation-based community organizations working to promote justice and fairness. Washington is one of fifteen individuals selected from a pool of more than 850 applicants to have been accepted into the DART Organizers Institute, a field school designed to train a new generation of community organizers.
Hampton University School of Pharmacy Senior Kefa Wainaina received the Walgreens Diversity Scholarship for $2,000. As a result, he will be featured on the pharmacy chain’s community and social responsibility website, which features students and schools actively participating and initiating diversity awareness in pharmacy schools, and communities in which they serve.
The search for the Hampton University’s model student has never been easy. With high achievers in every realm, Hampton has always boasted an abundance of star students. This year, it was difficult to deny the dazzle of one particular student’s shine. Kyshira Moffett, a third-year student in Hampton University’s five-year MBA program from Chicago, Ill., has been named Model Student for the 2010-2011 school year.
