Awards: Accepted to NY Medical College and Meharry Medical School, 2012
Preparing for graduation in May with a master's degree in biological science from Drexel University in Philadelphia, Lucy Leid (Medgar Evers, B.S. in biology, 2008) has been accepted to New York Medical College and Meharry Medical School. She came to Medgar Evers with a GED and says that she's so "thankful that Medgar Evers took a chance on me. It's not about where you go but what you get out of it." Leid's mother graduated from the nursing program at Medgar Evers some 20 years ago. Leid says the key to her success is perseverance and determination.
