Riverdale Students Featured in CNN Report
Posted 06/19/2018 02:00PM

Sugeidy Ferreira '18 and Kevin Pepin '21 are featured in a special CNN report as part of the network's "Champions for Change" series. You can see the program here

Reported by Don Lemon, the program focuses on Oliver Scholars, a program that prepares high-achieving students of color from underserved neighborhoods for success at New York's top independent schools. Lemon came to the campus in April to interview the students about their Riverdale experience. He also met with Milton Sipp, assistant head of school and head of the Middle School.

"We have had a very positive experience working with Oliver over many years," said Jenna R. King, Riverdale's director of admission and enrollment management. "We appreciate the program's commitment to service and to developing adolescents as scholars and as people."

Lemon's report is part of a weeklong series featuring anchors and correspondents. The series will culminate in a one-hour special on Sunday, June 23, at 8 pm EST.
