2010's Milestones: Alumni Achievements

Hayley King, B.A. 2016, has been named a 2015 Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Fellow.

King will pursue a dual master’s degree in international relations and public relations, before beginning her career of service as a U.S. diplomat.

The Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Fellowship program, which was established in 2003 as a joint initiative between the U.S. State Department and Howard University, aims to enhance the excellence and diversity of the U.S. Foreign Service. 

Genetta Reeves, B.S. 2013, was awarded the Woodrow Wilson Georgia Teaching Fellowship. The highly competitive program recruits both recent graduates and career changers with strong backgrounds in science, technology, engineering and math— the STEM fields—and prepares them specifically to teach in high-need secondary schools.

Each fellow receives $30,000 to complete a specially designed, cutting- edge master’s degree program based on a yearlong classroom experience. In return, fellows commit to teach for three years in the urban and rural Georgia schools that most need strong STEM teachers. Throughout the commitment, fellows receive ongoing support and mentoring. 

Shannon Coombs, B.A. 2016, Brittany Galloway, B.S. 2016, and Layla West, B.A. 2016, have been named 2016 Fulbright Scholars.

Coombs and Galloway will complete English teaching assistantships in South Korea, while West will complete one in South Africa.

The Fulbright program was established in 1946 to increase mutual understanding between the United States and other countries through the exchange of people, knowledge and skills.
