Joy has been with Student U since the beginning. She joined our community in 2007 as a member of our first class of students, and it has been home for her ever since. She graduated from NC A&T with her Bachelor’s in Social Work and has recently earned her Social Work Master’s degree. She is now striving towards greatness and changing her community for the better by fostering greatness in her students.
Listen to Alexandra Zagbayou, Executive Director of Student U, and Elena Maina, Program Director of Student U, for their reflections on the state of education in Durham, as well as Student U's plans for 2021. This was an online conversation about our community's COVID-19 recovery efforts and how Student U is reimagining what our programming will look like in the future.
Join us in celebrating our Class of 2021 High School Graduates as they announce their future plans. They have worked tirelessly to make sure they are in the best position to make their dreams come true and achieve greatness. We are proud of each graduate and look forward to being with them as they transition to the next phase of their life.
