Meet DonnaAs a high school senior, I was certain that I would attend college, but was uncertain about what would be my major. I remember one day the high schools counselor called us in, myself and two other African American students, and informed us that the local Historically Black College and University, Southern University, wanted to offer 3 scholarships in Physics to student from my high school. The counselor along with the science teachers had chosen us based on performance in our science and math classes.
