Devon Carter Named Holmes Scholar of the Month

Devon CarterCongratulations to Devon Carter, Holmes Scholar of the Month, for February 2022.

Carter is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in special education at Lehigh.

Carter is the co-founder of Recognize Education and Learn (REAL), which helps students create a new, positive perspective and appreciation for education. “My family and I started this because we just want to figure out a way to help. We believe with a positive perspective of education and what it can provide, students will benefit from understanding why they need to educate themselves,” Carter stated. “We also want to help teachers, staff, etc. by creating a positive culture around education from the students’ perspective, which establishes a cohesive environment among students and the school environment that ultimately wants them to succeed. This serves to benefit students, teachers, staff members, and the entire culture of inspired positivity regarding education.”
