Gabby Douglas has caught the attention of the top HBCU (Historically Black College & Univ.) in the nation: Spelman College!
The all-girls school has spoken very highly of our high-flying Gabby, and sent the 16-year-old Olympic Champion well wishes on her two gold medals in gymnastics.
Spelman’s President, Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, released a statement regarding Ms. Douglas:
“A young woman who has demonstrated the drive and discipline needed to achieve world-class excellence is likely to have what it takes to be successful at Spelman, and we would welcome her interest in the college.”
Spelman wastes no time! Also included with their statement was a special gift bag; so they obviously know that swag always sways your mind!
Many notable people have graduated from the illustrious Atlanta-based institution and Gabby would be joining that long list of successful collegiate women! It looks like she already fits right in. Congratulations Gabby. Read more:
