Former KIPPsters Earn Honors

Two former standout KIPP Delta students continued their track record of academic achievement by earning entrance to the University of Arkansas’s prestigious College of Education & Health Professions Honors Program and Fulbright College Honors Program earlier this month.

 

Kyra Davis and Nekeva Caffey were both members of the Class of 2017 and each had their fair share of universities from which to choose after successful academic careers at KIPP Delta Collegiate High School. Both ended up choosing the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, one of the highest-ranked public institutions in the state.

 

Davis will enter the College of Education & Health Professions Honors Program while Caffey will join the Fulbright College Honors Program.

 

Both programs are comprised of top undergraduates from across campus. They also provide mentoring relationships with talented faculty through independent research and enhanced career opportunities. Students in both programs must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.50.

 

 

KIPP Delta Public Schools are free, public charter schools in Helena, Blytheville, and Forrest City that accept all students on a space-available basis. Enrollment at all grades is open now. KIPP’s mission is to empower students from educationally underserved communities to develop the knowledge, skills, and character traits they need for success in college and life.
