Student Leadership Specialist
Gerrod holds a B.A. in Political Science from Winston-Salem State University. He joined the CSC in the fall of 2019, after holding several positions within the field of education, all of which served underrepresented populations, and assisted in their educational growth to ultimately make a positive economic impact in their lives.
His commitment to, and work in education, can be summarized by a statement by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., “I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture of their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.” Gerrod understands that talented individuals are everywhere, however, opportunities for every individual is not.
He aspires to be a college president of a Historically Black College or University (HBCU), and intends on leading positive change in education through policy and programming.
