Ashanna MorrisBrooklyn, New York native Ashanna Morris is one of the top 10 graduates for the Spelman College class of 2018. Graduating summa cum laude with a 3.88 grade point average, the English major will join the class of 472 students during Spelman’s 131st Commencement on Sunday, May 20, at the Georgia International Convention Center in Atlanta.

A graduate of Benjamin Banneker Academy for Community Development in Brooklyn,  Morris recently worked as a creative brand marketing intern for CNN and in the 360 consumer marketing and brand strategy department for BET Networks.

Recognizing that today’s contemporary media environment demands a promotional strategy that acknowledges the diverse ways in which audiences consume media online and in print, the first generation college student plans to pursue a career in brand marketing with hopes of becoming the editor of a major magazine publication.

As a 2018 Women of Excellence in Leadership scholar, Morris hopes to use her platform to inspire others to follow in her footsteps.
