About Da’Shaun Harrison

Award-winning scholar Da’Shaun Harrison was born and raised in Wilmington, NC.  It’s safe to say that Da’Shaun was very involved with his school, having recently graduated from Hoggard High School in 2014 with a 4.2 GPA.  But not only did Da’Shaun excel inside the classroom, but he was also very involved outside the classroom becoming the First African American Male Drum Major to ever walk the campus.  Not to mention being a survivor of atrial fibrillation, it seems no matter what the test is Da’Shaun always finds a way to pass with flying colors.  Now a man of Morehouse College, a Historically Black College & University in Atlanta, GA, Da’Shaun is a member of the NAACP, and other organizations on campus working to make the world a better place.
