DeVaughn Riley

Coming from Dorchester, Massachusetts DeVaughn found his way to Colby College, and is now a junior studying Sociology and Math. He was raised in a single parent household where his West Indian heritage and culture was cherished. Being hardworking was not an option but rather the expectation. DeVaughn is a true basketball and music junkie. The two truly make up and define the person he has grown into today. Using the experiences and skills he has obtained from his journey to college as a first generation student, DeVaughn hopes to give back to the community he is from by helping other young men of color succeed despite being from a disadvantageous background.
