Clark Atlanta University Alumni Gives Back

Clark Atlanta University class of 2004 Alumni Tekquiree Spencer, Kisha Celistan, Kaneisha Northern (Grad Girls Founder), and Nichole Celistan volunteering at the Howl Away Hunger event at the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank on October 31, 2009.

Kaneisha Northern is a proud 2004 HBCU graduate of Clark Atlanta University and a fan of BlackGivesBack! She is the founder of Grad Girls Network, a Los Angeles based nonprofit organization that shapes underprivileged teen girls into confident and productive high school graduates. The organization accomplishes this through their afterschool enrichment programs that expose students to activities and professional women who assist them with shaping their futures.

This past Halloween, Kaneisha along with some of her former classmates and Grad Girls students volunteered at the LA Regional Food Bank on behalf of the organization and Clark Atlanta University. She shared, “We believe that it is important to pay it forward and live within our Alma Mater’s motto which is, “Culture for Service.”

Thank you Kaneisha and ladies for giving back and sharing your photos! (Love your t-shirts!)
