Students at Solomon Coles High School were visited by an influential woman in higher education on Friday.

Gloria Scott visited the school as part of the History Makers program, an initiative to encourage young adults to pursue education and higher degrees.

Scott spoke about the challenges she faced and successes she has had. She said she has a distinct message to send to students.

"To feel comfortable with who they are, but know that they must expand, and that there are opportunities to expand," Scott said.
