First Generation College Student Week at CW-Mohammed Konneh

It’s First Generation Week and we are glad to present the first round of students who shared their stories with us. A first-generation college graduate refers to a person who has completed at least a bachelor's degree but does not have a parent who has completed at least a bachelor's degree. The purpose of #FirstGenerationWeek is to celebrate those students and their families for this big milestone of having a first college graduate in the family.
