Celebrating our Student of the Week Series

Black excellence is a habit that for many Black youth start at a young age. Meet Miss Keilani Williams who is a Senior at Whitney Young High School and is 18 years of age.

She has been recognized at the Black History Month student of the week…

Keilani has made a very positive impact in her community by always being an example to other youth her age. This began at a very early age for Keilani, when she realized she liked to help others when she began reading to the kids in her classroom during her kindergarten entrance test.
She has always volunteered on Saturday mornings to help different organizations. Now, she takes different youth with her when she volunteers. She currently has a 4.0 GPA and received a 30 ACT score. She aspires to become a wealth manager.

-Keilani plans to major in Business Economics
