Future Brighter Now for Native Haitian
Eastern Kentucky University Senior Kevely Dumay is the model student. Along with his 3.7 GPA, he is a McNair scholar, Chamber Colonel, a member of EKU’s Marketing Club, and will spend next semester as an intern at the state capitol. However, the future wasn’t always so hopeful for the native Haitian.
Originally from the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince, Dumay experienced firsthand one of the most devastating natural disasters of the 21st century: the 2010 Haiti earthquake. While Dumay and his family were fortunate enough to survive, they lost many of their closest friends and acquaintances to the disaster.
