HFC prepared student for grad school at Wayne State, where she graduated magna cum laude
Erica Davenport is the first person in her family to earn a master’s degree. Davenport recently graduated magna cum laude from Wayne State University in Detroit, earning her master’s degree in educational leadership. “My grandparents were very influential in my upbringing, especially my grandmother Mary,” said Davenport, of Detroit. “She was an advocate of higher education and encouraged me to continue my education after high school. She passed away in 2015 from cancer, a year before I graduated from Western Michigan University. My master’s degree is in honor of her.” The eldest of three, Davenport graduated from the Detroit School of Arts in 2011 and from WMU in 2016. At WMU, she earned her bachelor’s degree in child and family development with a minor in social work.
