Student Shereese Trumpet named among 20 distinguished minority architects

Shereese Trumpet, B Arch major at The Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture at The City College of New York, is one of 20 distinguished minority architects and designers featured in the “Say It Loud’ exhibition, which celebrates the creative work of distinguished black members of the National Organization of Minority Architects, New York Coalition of Black Architects.

Trumpet interviewed at nycobaNOMA and was asked questions about diversity in architecture; they recorded her answers and added it to the exhibition, which highlights black, Hispanic and Asian professionals across the United States. The display at the Center for Architecture ends on April 1.

A native of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Trumpet credits a College Now course in architecture for her love of the field and choice of City College. “It’s more competitive and hard to get into, and everyone I spoke to said when you get out of City College people in the architecture field know that you’re equipped to design buildings,” said the 22-year-old City College Honors Program member.

Her other accolades include the nycobaNOMA Diversity Award and the Center for Architecture Heritage Ball Scholarship in 2014. She was also part of six architecture students who designed and constructed a collapsible table for the Spitzer School’s Solar Roof Pod.
