“When we came to Congress, we made a promise to serve all North Carolinians, regardless of background, and work to open doors of hope and opportunity. We quickly learned that HBCUs were integral to that effort and that you can have a ‘R’ by your name, but build genuine relationships and create opportunities across all the communities you represent. These efforts are some of my most proud accomplishments in the House. I am blessed with bridges we have built across communities and know they will have a lasting and positive impact for generations of students.”
