Gwendolyn Harrison Smith Community Award
The award was established last year in honor of Gwendolyn Harrison Smith, the first African-American woman to enroll as a student at UNC Chapel Hill. It was established to recognize one graduate or professional student each year who has made a particular impact on the graduate and professional community by (1) promoting diversity in the community and (2) advocating for graduate and professional students.
Congratulations, Sertanya, and thank you for your contributions to UNC!
