Lakayla ThompsonLaKayla Thompson is a graduating senior, education studies major from Kansas City, Kansas, and served as the 2019-2020 senior class president. 

"Spelman College is an empowering educational experience for all who enter her gates," Thompson said. "One of the greatest lessons I learned at Spelman is what true honor-ability is. As a woman, true honor-ability is when you can identify and acknowledge the magnificence that lies within another woman. What I love about my class, the Class of 2020, is that they each properly appropriate their own greatness," she added.

"Every day, for four years, I walked alongside extraordinary young women who committed themselves to defying any odds stacked against them. Because of their commitment, I exit Spelman with my head held high — inspired, empowered and transformed. The strength, stride and sparkle of those I entered Spelman College with cannot be denied, and I am so grateful that I was able to encounter what and who will go on to brighten the world, forever."
