In Memory of Derrell Graham
January 4, 1990 – April 11, 2015
On April 11, 2015, College Bound lost a loving and awesome alumni, and the world lost a happy and friendly soul. Derrell was a proud man that boasted about his maternal lineage from Cameroon, Africa. As a member of the College Bound Class of 2008, he entered Howard University, graduating in June 2012, with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing. Prior to his passing, Derrell worked at Memorial Care Health Systems and enjoyed playing basketball and hanging out with his friends.
Derrell was ever grateful to his parents for all that they bestowed upon him. Reflecting this deep appreciation, as he graduated from high school in 2008, he wrote these words to them: “I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there with me every step of the way… No one can take away the love that I feel for you.” The profound depth of his spirit will forever reside within the hearts of the College Bound family.
In honor of his memory, we have established the Derrell Graham Scholarship Fund to continue the legacy of exceptional academic success.
