Iraqi refugee, QuestBridge Scholar and Bonner Scholar Anmar Jerjees '18 hopes to prevent others from living his past.
U.S. Poet Laureate Charles Wright '57, joined NPR host Melissa Block on Thursday, Sept. 25 to read a poem that conjures feelings of autumn.
Anmar Jerjees ‘18 didn’t hear about Davidson from college counselors, relatives or friends, or read about the college in glossy brochures – Jerjees learned of Davidson after arriving in North Carolina as an Iraqi refugee and researching his new home state.
When it came time to consider college, Davidson was Jerjees’s first choice. He submitted an early decision application to Davidson through the QuestBridge program, which connects exceptionally talented low-income high school students to the nation’s best colleges and scholarship opportunities.
