Graduating at the age of 18 magna **** laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology and a minor in Spanish, MiKayla Raines, daughter of Phillip and April Raines of Bunnlevel, became one of the youngest graduates in Fayetteville State University’s history. Ms. Raines is currently running for Fayetteville State University’s National Alumni Association Queen for the 2018-19 term, and as a part of the competition she is raising money for FSU.
After graduation in 2017, Ms. Raines decided that she wanted to give back to students in the form of scholarships.
“I want to provide them with opportunities to succeed just as I was able to,” she said.
She is asking the public to support her in her journey to give back to the community by making donations to FSU for her campaign.
Anyone wishing to assist her, may contact her at MiKaylaRaines4MsFayStateAlumni@yahoo.com for more information.
