Ava Hendricks

  • Immigration Law Writer (Class of 2020)

  • Kyle Sherard is from Nashville, NC. After eighteen seemingly-endless years in Nash County, Sherard moved to Asheville, where he attended and earned a B.A. in Fine Arts from UNC-Asheville. Following school, he began writing a column for an Asheville independent newspaper and, separately, running a used book store. Taken together, these positions created an environment of intensive ongoing research into U.S. social history, law and public policy. These interests ultimately led him to North Carolina Central University’s School of Law

Serenity Hogan

  • Constitutional Law Writer (Class of 2020)

  • Serenity Hogan is a proud native of Hoke County and Hoke County High (class of 2012). During her undergraduate years at NCCU, she majored in Criminal Justice, with a concentration in law enforcement. Her goal was to become a criminal defense attorney. During her sophomore year, I began taking core classes in her major. It was then that she began to learn about the racial disparities within the criminal justice system. The war on drugs and resulting increase in mass incarceration and its effect on the minority community (particularly communities of color) made clear the physical and mental conditions of the surrounding neighborhoods. She was shielded and oblivious to the “New Jim Crow,” but now her desire to be an advocate for minorities as well as rural communities is much bigger than herself. She has realized that she must fully divulge herself into my community in order to eradicate the barriers created by the system.
