Incoming CCP Student Shares What He Would Change About Philly

Kevin Davis, a graduating senior from Strawberry Mansion High School who will attend Community College of Philadelphia’s honors program in mass media this fall, explained that he would like to see socioeconomic change in Philadelphia. “Growing up in North Philadelphia, I have seen firsthand how hard it was for my parents to come across the things we needed just to get by,” Davis wrote in an op-ed for The Philadelphia Inquirer. “I believe one day that we will see this change and the people of these communities will greatly benefit from this. I see a bright future for my community and truly believe that one day we’ll get the tools that are necessary for us.”
