Shonda Goward is a renaissance woman who is a college instructor, an education administrator, a performance artist and writer. She is also the founder of First Generation, a nonprofit that provides resources to students who are the first in their family to attend college. Her desire to start her nonprofit was borne from her own experience as a first-generation college student at the University of North Carolina.
In a successful effort of giving back, Goward will be producing her second fundraiser this weekend for the Out of S.T.A.T.E. scholarship she created through First Generation.
Join First Generation University in it's second annual Hill to Hill Scholarship Fundraiser!
Funds raised are donated to the Out of S.T.A.T.E. scholarship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which supports low income students of color.
