Dr. Christian Bell became the first SEEF Scholar to receive her Ph.D.

Christian was one of the most financially challenged students to come through our program. Then, soon after graduating Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, her mother passed away.

Despite these challenges, she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, a Master of Arts in Child and Adolescent Development, and now a Doctorate in Education Policy and Planning! Christian spent two years giving back to disadvantaged communities through Teach for America. We are so very proud of her!
