Q&A With David A. Yokley

Why did you choose to attend a HBCU?
"I chose to attend an HBCU because I desired to be close to the historical values of my ancestors and to be a part of the cultural experience while simultaneously receiving a quality education that was established by those who sacrificed and paved the educational path for me."
