Morehouse has opened many doors for the graduating senior. The college helped him become a finalist for the Rhodes scholarship. He interned for Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and is mulling a career in law or perhaps politics. A busload of family members will be in the crowd on May 19, cheering his crowning achievement as a Morehouse man.
