Kareem Douglas Named Grove School of Engineering 2008 Valedictorian
Start: 05/16/08
End: 05/31/10

Kareem Douglas With a Jamaican college degree in accounting, and wanting better opportunities for her only child, Kareem Douglas’s mom sent him to New York City to live with his father, a postal worker, to complete the last year of high school. After several months of typical father-son adjustment issues, Kareem moved again, this time with grandparents in Connecticut. Having spent his life enjoying the Jamaican beaches, and taking life as it comes (not studying much); Kareem was completely unprepared for the next stage of his life: admission to college.

Miraculously, Kareem’s godmother entered his life and changed his odds of success for all time. An old friend of his mom who knew the ropes insisted on exposing him to the frenzied world of college fairs. Arranging visits and accompanying him everywhere, she asked recruiters all the important questions a fairy-godmother knows to ask. Discovering the CUNY Honors College, she took little time and no hesitation to manage the application process, and soon the two grandly celebrated his selection into Honors Chemistry at CCNY.
