Native Washingtonian Gives Back to D.C. Public Schools


GW sophomore Eden Parker offers guidance at a student council meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 7 at Eliot-Hine Middle School.



GW sophomore Eden Parker in 2022 was one of 10 D.C. residents and high school graduates awarded the Stephen Joel Trachtenberg Scholarship, which covers tuition, room, board, books and fees throughout four years at GW.

In her position as an SJT scholar, Parker has felt compelled to share her journey and some of the opportunities she has earned to other passionate DC Public School students. In March she'll help the Nashman Center host DCPS students on a retreat to GW, giving those youth a chance to set foot on a college campus and plant the seeds of inspiration.

“Having those conversations with other DCPS students, I’m able to see where there’s a lack of awareness about resources we have and the need in D.C. schools,” Parker said. “I want to give back in that sense, just because I am a little bit more aware now.
