Donya Amber Renee Conley graduated from St Patrick St Vincent High School this year. Her favorite way to express herself is through words and forms of dance, "because my words have a powerful meaning behind them and the moves that are performed through my body, speak a message without the help of my words." My greatest accomplishment is receiving admissions to Howard University, which I will attend in the fall. Donya is a 3rd year Willie B. Adkins Scholar and her favorite relationship is her covenant with God through faith and stability. Her future goals include creating a production studio and branching out to make a scholarship foundation.
