Daphnie Summers' accomplishments were recognized during a reception for SCHEV by
JSRCC President Dr. Gary Rhodes (left) and
R-MC President Robert R. Lindgren.
Daphnie Summers graduated from Randolph-Macon College on May 28, 2011 with a bachelor’s
degree in psychology with emphasis in clinical
psychology and social psychology. Born in Colombia, she came to the U.S. nearly
11 years ago and attended middle and high school in Chesterfield, Virginia.
An Allen Scholar while at Randolph-Macon College, Summers excelled in academics.
She was inducted into the Phi Beta
Kappa honor society. She was also inducted into the international psychology
honor society, Psi Chi, and was awarded the Psi Chi Award for Academic Excellence
for having the highest GPA in the major. Summers also had the opportunity to study
in Italy during R-MC’s January Term and
completed two group research studies on racial issues.
Summers transferred to Randolph-Macon in
2008 after graduating from J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College (JSRCC), where
she earned associate degrees in business administration, liberal arts, and social
science. At JSRCC, she served as president of the Student Council Association, represented
JSRCC on the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) Student Advisory
Council, and was chosen to be their graduation speaker.
Summers says she is very proud of her college experience. Another major accomplishment
for her was becoming a U.S. citizen, as she took the oath during a ceremony on Monday,
May 16, 2011.
Summers will attend The College of William & Mary to pursue a master’s degree
in higher education administration.
