I am pleased to announce the reformation of the Graduates of Color Committee (GoCC). This group is designed to build affinity for all graduates of color: Graduates of African-American, Latino/Hispanic, Asian/Indian, Native American and bi-racial descent, among others. We hope this group strengthens connections between graduates of color and continues your lifelong relationship with the school.
After a hiatus, Devin Adanma Nwanagu ’05 reestablished the committee in the fall of 2014. Her energy and determination brought together a dedicated group of graduates to carry on the work.
Devin’s passing on Sunday, December 14, 2014 shocked us all. She will be remembered for the ways that she touched each of us who had the privilege of knowing her. She left a massive void in the Nobles community, but we are buoyed by the light that she shone on us all and that inspires us to keep working on the things important to her. As such, the members of the GoCC are dedicated to a successful revival of the committee’s work.
Furthermore, her family, classmates, and friends have established the Devin Nwanagu ’05 Scholarship Fund, which will be awarded “with preference given to female students of color, who, like Devin, bring dedication, motivation and sportsmanship to the Nobles classrooms and playing fields.” As a testament to Devin, we are encouraging everyone to make a donation to her scholarship. To do so, specify “Devin Nwanagu Scholarship” on this donation form. Any size donation will go a long way towards fully endowing the fund and securing Devin’s legacy.
If you would like to join the Committee or update your information, please write to GraduateAffairs@nobles.edu.
