Top Ten Graduate: Lydia Laramore, C'2021

May 2021

Spelman College Top 10 Class of 2021 Graduate Lydia Laramore

Lydia Laramore, C'2021, reflects on the critical decision to attend Spelman College as the best choice she has ever made. As a Presidential and Ethel Waddell Githii Honors Scholar, she is a distinguished member of Phi Beta Kappa and was awarded the Sophomore Book Award by the Epsilon of Georgia Chapter.

She served faithfully as a three-year peer tutor in the Writing Center while pursuing her passion for international studies and French. This experience inspired, reinforced and instilled in Laramore an undeniable love for language and helping others. Among her fellowships and awards, she has been honored as a Harvard Kennedy School of Government PPLC Scholar, Millennium Fellow, and Research Day 1st place winner.

A world traveler, Laramore cherishes her semester abroad in Paris and formative internships that include the Foreign Service Institute and Center for Policing Equity. The Fishers, Indiana native is a member of the “Sweet” Mu Pi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. where she is the chair of global impact and correspondence secretary.

She ends this season with immense gratitude for a tremendous experience and the unwavering support of her family. Laramore is elated to continue her next chapter by pursuing her Juris Doctorate at Yale Law School.
