BLAC would like to spotlight Keith Wilkerson '97 of Princeton University
Keith Wilkerson is the Founder and Lead Teacher for CollegeThoughts, an organization with a student-minded team who is dedicated to demystifying the college application process, making the process more of a personal exploration than a stress-inducing enigma. Previously, Keith worked as a key programs team member for A Better Chance for almost two decades.
A 1997 graduate of Princeton University, Keith holds a bachelor's degree in Religion with a certificate of proficiency in African-American Studies. And with 22 years of experience, over 200 workshops conducted, 1,500 students placed in school, and more than 7,000 families counseled on educational options for private school education and college, Keith and CollegeThoughts have the experience to help good students reach great goals as they apply to the nation’s top colleges.
He shared that, “Two generations ago, my grandfather swept the floor of the bookstore at William & Mary, posting the accomplishments of his children and grandchildren on the bulletin board inside of the store when we would send updates to him. Today, I have the privilege of sending students there to study, standing on his giant shoulders and seeing the Promised Land that he dreamed of for us.”
