Dominique McKoy:
2008 Legacy Fund Recipient

Legacy Fund Recipients

Dominique McKoy was born and raised in the Bronx, although her family is originally from Jamaica. She has attended Catholic schools her entire academic life, and graduated from Cardinal Spellman High School in the Bronx in 2005 with first honors and a 96 average. In addition to attending Fordham as a full-time student, Dominique currently holds two jobs—one as a barista at Starbuck’s and another as a waitress in New Rochelle.

She is majoring in history, with a concentration on 20th-century African history, and African-American history. After her graduation from Fordham in May 2009, Dominique hopes to either work for Teach For America, a program for underprivileged students, or to work for the Peace Corps while attending graduate school. Her ultimate career goal is to teach 20th-century African and African-American history to underprivileged high school students.

Dominique feels honored to have been selected as the 2008 Marymount Legacy Fund Scholarship recipient. This honor is more than she ever expected. Dominique also has a twin sister who attends Princeton University.

Dominique is a very hardworking and deserving young woman. We congratulate her on her achievements, and wish her continued success as she pursues her career goals.
