SOE Alumna Selected as Albert Schweitzer Fellow

Albany, NY (September 28, 2012) - Educational Administration and Policy Studies alumna Iyanna Henry (’10) has been selected as a North Carolina Albert Schweitzer Fellow.

Over the next year, Henry will join approximately 250 other 2012-13 Schweitzer Fellows across the country in continuing the good work of Dr. Albert Schweitzer, conceptualizing and carrying out service projects that address the social determinants of health in underserved communities.

Henry, a student at North Carolina Central University School of Law, will develop a mentoring and self-esteem program for minority middle school boys at Durham Nativity School, encouraging academic excellence and exposing them to the legal profession as a possible career choice.

Upon completion of her Fellowship year, Henry will become a Schweitzer Fellow for Life—and join a vibrant network of nearly 2,500 individuals who are skilled in, and committed to, addressing the health needs of underserved people throughout their careers as professionals. Ninety-nine percent of Fellows for Life say that ASF is integral to sustaining their commitment to serving those in need.
