Kyra Davis received six guest tickets for her graduation from Goucher College last month — not nearly enough to accommodate her large support system. “People asked to smuggle in my car,” the freshly minted political science and education studies graduate said. “It was a huge deal.” That’s partially because Davis, who will begin her career as a special education teacher in Baltimore this fall, said she once considered college too lofty a goal. In high school at Baltimore City College, she had difficulty improving her SAT and ACT scores. And after hearing horror stories about student loans and college debt, she was loath to take on the financial burden.
