Cleveland Alexander Waddell (CUNY BA, Medgar Evers College, B.S. in Mathematical Sciences and Computer Science, 2012) has been accepted to North Carolina State University, where he will work on a Ph.D. in applied mathematics.
“Education means so much to me," he says. "My parents are an integral part of my educational foundation. As a child, I saw the success of my parents' education in their professional lives. My mother is a nurse, and my father is a doctor.
“For me, the best way to be successful in life is to get a good, solid education. My acceptance into the Ph.D. program in applied mathematics is due to the support, encouragement and the nurturing environment provided by my mentors in the Math and Computer Science Department at Medgar Evers."
