Introduction of our speaker Dr. Kemal Atkins, and his wife Julia
Five years in Keene. We are not a colorful community. School as social mobility. Founder of think college, to help his students understand the need for further education, scholarship and the process of applying to school. Coming to a non-diverse campus small to large institutions never really thought about diversity. He was concerned about his family’s transition to Keene. Intentional about how they would find things to engage with in the community. Jack and Jill Inc. makes sure African American students are given a strong sense of culture and academic careers.
Sense of belonging and sense of purpose!
