HBCU Storyteller Spotlight: Jerell Blakeley, Howard '10

HBCU Storyteller Spotlight

Howard University alumnus Jerell Blakeley, ’10, helps change negative perceptions of his alma mater in a simple Facebook post.

“You hear so much about the administrative bureaucracy at Howard University and other HBCUs. Well, I have a good story. I needed some transcripts and so I go on Bison Web. I order them and call Howard 20 minutes later to see what was going on. I’m happy to report that by the time I called Howard, the transcripts were printed and in the mail. Look at Howard trying to be efficient and customer friendly. #goodmove”
