Shanna Graham (HESA Class of 2015) will be recognized for an award at the Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY) Phenomenal Women of Power Leadership Breakfast on March 14, 2015. Shanna was selected for an award due to her efforts in supporting mentoring programs for underrepresented student populations and for “[embodying] the character and commitment of the College’s founder, Audrey Cohen.”
Following the breakfast, a “Phenomenal Women of Power” roundtable discussion will be held at MCNY, where Shanna will be able to share insights into her experiences. The discussion will be centered on issues that impact women educators and will be led by women currently setting the course for the field of education.
Proceeds from this breakfast and event will be donated to the Melvin I. Douglass Scholarship for Urban Education at MCNY. The fund is the first at MCNY dedicated to students in the Masters of Science in Education program, and the first fund established by an African American man at MCNY.
