A former professional baseball player from Jamaica who will go to Princeton University next fall to begin work toward a PhD in engineering. A businesswoman from Japan who quit her job and decided to become a special education teacher. A young man from Brooklyn who was raised by a single mother and is now just two years away from becoming a physician.
These are a few of the remarkable young men and women profiled in our Great Grads salute for 2013. Nominated by members of the faculty, they represent every school and division of City College, and they reflect the broad diversity that is a hallmark of our student population.
They were selected not only because they are academic achievers who strive to excel in the classroom, studio or lab. But also, because of who they are, how they live and how they intend to apply their knowledge and skills. Their stories inspire and truly illustrate the transformative power of higher education.
