On Thursday, November 14, 2018, Senior Track Runner Dejah Grant held an event in which she would be announcing where she would be continuing her academic and athletic career. Her top 4 choices were Morgan State University, UMBC, North Carolina A&T, and Hampton University. Dejah chose to take her outstanding track skills and 3.6 gpa to Hampton University on a full ride scholarship. I got a chance to ask Dejah a couple of questions about her decision:
Terrence: “Why was Hampton the right school for you?”
Dejah: “Hampton was the right school for me because I believe it can help me grow as an athlete and as a student! I felt like home being there. I went on multiple visits prior to my official visit!”
Terrence: “What kept you focused throughout High School?”
Dejah: “What kept me focused was knowing I didn’t want to pay a dime in college. Many people leave college with debt and I won’t be one of them!!”
We wish Dejah Goodluck on her future career at Hampton University! Go Jags!
