Rockville High School senior Saba Gongbay was ready for her college admission interview with Morgan State University — she had copies of her high school transcript, SAT scores and even a letter of recommendation.
When it was her turn, she sat down opposite college admissions officer Lee Ann Lewis. After a few questions about Gongbay’s interest in the university and a quick glance at her records, Lewis gave the 18-year-old the good news.
“Welcome to Morgan,” Lewis said after handing Gongbay a letter of acceptance.
As she walked out of the guidance center at Springbrook High School, Gongbay had a lightness in her step. “I’m happy, relieved,” she said. “At least I’m going to college.”
