Black History Month - Andre Hooks

To end Black History Month on a high note, we want to talk about Andre Hooks. Many students know him as he is a very dedicated staff member in the CW family working on the High School team. For Andre, obtaining a college degree is more than going to classes and doing homework. College for him is opening a door to endless opportunities in a very competitive world.

We asked him a few questions and this is what he had to say.

Black History Month - Claude Laviscount

Since day one, Claude Laviscount knew that the road to success was not going to be easy. Starting college as an adult, being a single mother, and having statistics against her for minority women succeeding in higher education, everything seemed to be against her. However, her determination, resilience, and commitment to excellence have helped her to stay in school and complete her bachelor’s degree.

Every day, but especially during Black History Month, she remembers some powerful words she received when she was a college student, “run your own race, everyone's journey is different, stay true to your journey because you can do whatever you set your mind to, YOU are ENOUGH.”

Black History Month - Dr. Shamva Wright-Shingler

To continue the celebrations of Black History Month, we now put the spotlight on Dr. Shamva Wright-Shingler, the Chairperson of The School of Health Professions at CW. She is loved by the students and respected by her colleagues. For Dr. Wright-Shingler, BHM is more than a month of remembrance, it’s the month that honors the rich history, experiences, struggles, and achievements of African Americans.
