Three seniors from McClymonds High School — Terranisha Nathaniel, Ernest Marshall and Shakuri Evans — have won four-year $16,000 college scholarships from the East Bay College Fund.
The three were honored Tuesday night along with 27 other students from Oakland public high schools at a ceremony at the Oakland Museum. TV reporter Belva Davis and news cameraman Bill Moore spoke about their challenges, obstacles and success as African American journalists.
Nathaniel, who won the Princeton Prize in Race Relations last year for her environmental activism, plans to attend Chico State. Marshall has enrolled at the University of North Carolina, while Shakuri Evans will go to Humboldt State.
