SCH Black Alumni Talk with Current US Students about College

Last week, four SCH black alumni came together for a (virtual) panel hosted by the Black Student Union for Upper School students. Students packed the Student Resource Center to hear first-hand from our graduates who shared how they selected their school and how SCH prepared them for college, as well as offering up tips for success as a black student, and a bit about their different journeys, whether at a historically black college and university (HBCU) or navigating within a predominantly white institution (PWI).

Melanie Graves 17, who is also the co-chair of SCH Black Alumni, provided a welcome measure of assurance to the group, stating that “SCH provided me with the tools to be confident in my ability to know how to read, write, and analyze text and how to approach problem-solving skills by asking the right questions.” 

Thank you, SCH Black alumni—Melanie Graves ’17 (Wellesley College), Xavier Bell ‘16 (Penn State University), Sydney Crawford ‘17 (Hampton University), and Ty’Quish Keyes ‘11 (Morehouse College)—for coming “back” and sharing your stories with our current students!
