Rising Senior Earns Swarthmore College Internship

The Class of 2019 is making sure there is no lapse in school leadership following the graduation of their predecessors.

Leading by example – rising senior, Adebayo Adelekan, has been selected to represent St. Augustine Prep as part of the Swarthmore Black Alumni Network’s Summer Internship Program!

The Swarthmore College Internship will provide Adebayo the opportunity to be mentored by Professor Keith Reeves, Swarthmore’s Political Science Department Chair, and his talented research staff and assistants.  His experience will touch on topics such as criminal law, criminal justice policy, and social justice taking him to court sessions with undergrad interns and meeting prominent Swarthmore alumni, attorneys, judges, and prosecutors.  In addition, Adebayo will have the opportunity to meet with the college’s Admissions Office and take an in-depth tour of Swarthmore’s sprawling 425-acre campus located 11-miles southwest of Philadelphia.

As stated by Mr. Scott Lisgar, Esq. (P ’19, ’22), who helped facilitate the partnership with Professor Reeves and Swarthmore College, “Adebayo is an outstanding academic and a leader in his community.  He will undoubtedly be a very positive influence on all he touches through this experience.”

The school community congratulates Adebayo and we thank Mr. Lisgar, Professor Reeves, and Swarthmore College for paving the way for future Hermits!
