One Kentucky State University student is making an impact during the General Assembly 2022 regular session. Savion Briggs, a sophomore political science major from Louisville, is doing big things at the College on the Hill. Briggs is an intern for the Legislative Research Committee (LRC) and served under State Representative George Brown Jr. during the regular session.
“So far the experience has been amazing.”Savion Briggs
Savion Briggs said his future plans include working for a Fortune 500 company’s diversity and inclusion team while running his own social justice foundation. Soon after that, Briggs would like to put his LRC experience to work and run for political office.
Savion Briggs is also a part of the Wells Fargo Go Far diversity mentorship. Briggs said the mentorship program is curriculum-based and targets diverse sophomore students currently attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) or Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs). The program focuses on career development, exposure to senior leadership and provides a direct connection to Wells Fargo events and opportunities.
While at Kentucky State, Savion Briggs has wasted no time getting involved. He has served as the freshman and sophomore class president; as a member of the NAACP; as a Kentucky State University student ambassador; the Collegiate 100 vice president; the Breaking The Cycle treasurer; the W.O.K.E. Task Force founding representative; accepted into the Thurgood Marshall College Fund 2021 Leadership Institute; a Pre-College Academy counselor; the NAACP Kentucky regent vice president; and earned a spot on the dean’s list.
“Kentucky State University stood out (as a prospective school) because of its rich history…I also had heard a lot of positive things about Kentucky State growing up and found it to be the most accessible school for my educational path.”Savion Briggs
One of his best memories at Kentucky State is having a great opportunity to mentor incoming freshmen through Pre-College Academy and showing them what it looks like to be a student and excel.
“Always put your academics first…Everything else can wait. If you master time management, you’ve mastered college and life.”Savion Briggs
