5.19.13 … Congratulations and kudos to Ms. Gaston, first African American graduate ever who calls the Town of Davidson “home!”

Davidson College,  Kaneisha L. Gaston ’13, kudos:  Long time coming … Congratulations and kudos to Ms. Gaston!

Students in this year’s graduating Class of 2013 at Davidson College come from 38 states and 14 other countries. At the same time, it’s also not uncommon for the college to graduate seniors from much closer to home. But this year’s graduates include an individual who represents an unusual geographic milestone. Kaneisha L. Gaston ’13 will be the first African American graduate ever who calls the Town of Davidson “home.”

Well, second home anyway! Gaston grew up in Charlotte. She attended David Cox Elementary School, Trinity Episcopal middle school and North Mecklenburg High.

But she is also deeply attached to Davidson’s African American community through her grandmother, great-grandmother and other relations. She spent countless hours in Davidson homes, and gives her kin in town credit for instilling in her the love and importance of learning that led her to enroll at Davidson.
