Congratulating Paige Blake on Appointment to White House Board of Advisors

I am excited to share news about the appointment of our very own Paige Blake, a junior biology major, as the only student named to President Joe Biden’s Board of Advisors on Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Her appointment comes after being named a 2021 HBCU Competitiveness Scholar by the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

The addition of a student voice provides a unique perspective as the Board continues its work towards the HBCU Initiative’s goal of increasing the capacity of historically black institutions to provide a quality education and other life changing opportunities.

Paige is on the pre-med track and plans to attend medical school to study neurology. Her goal is to serve others with neurological conditions.

Please join me in congratulating Paige.
