News, Notes + Nods


Nitiya Walker (center, in orange dress) emails, “I founded Seeds of Fortune during my senior year at Babson. We believe ‘every seed planted helps a flower grow.’ The nonprofit helps young women of color in minority communities apply for college scholarships and grants. We also teach personal finance and career skills. In 2014 and 2015, Seed Scholars were awarded $240,000 in scholarships and grants to attend colleges and universities across the country, and since January 2016 our scholars have been offered $500,000. I am shown with our Seed Scholars, including Posse Scholar Isis Edmunds ’20 (front, third from right).”
