Georghetta Conaway is a perfect embodiment of the phrase “Big things come from small towns.” A representer of #BlackExcellence at its finest, this high school senior has been accepted into Howard University’s incoming freshman class this August, and her teacher’s infectious reactions to her acceptance can’t help but make us smile. 

Conaway is no stranger to wearing many hats, and shines in and outside of the classroom. She has served her school and community as: 

  • President of the Jobs for Alabama’s Graduates: Fairfield Chapter
  • President of the Distributive Education Clubs of America: Fairfield Chapter
  • Head Drum Major in the Fairfield High Preparatory School “Marching Tiger” Band
  • Treasurer in the National Honors Society: Fairfield Chapter 
  • Previously an Alto Saxophone player in the Fairfield High Preparatory School “Marching Tiger” Band

“My current High School experience has shown me that I have to put my personal goals above the opinions of others,” said Conaway. “I still value being charitable and kind to others but high school has taught me that some people will drag you down with them, if you let them. I have to focus on attaining my goals, not pleasing my peers.” 

While attending Howard University, Conaway plans on studying Political Science. After college Conaway career goals include becoming a Business Immigration Lawyer and eventually starting her own practice. She also desires to continue in entrepreneurship, opening a #BlackOwnedBusiness that will allow her to sell clothing and/or fashion accessories – expanding on her current business: “Gg’s Accessories.”

Hoping to encourage other incoming freshmen, Conaway advises fellow peers to remember that “College is full of new experiences but what really helps is associating what you’re trying to remember with a personal attachment, rhyme, or physical gesture. If you believe in God, I recommend praying for help remembering things when studying for exams or branching into something new.”

In her words Conaway hopes to “put her community on the map” – inspiring black girls everywhere that any dream they set is possible with dedication, prayer and tenacity.
