RCDS Announces 2020 Graduation Speaker

We are pleased to announce that this year's Graduation speaker is Chiamaka Nwakeze, RCDS Class of 2006. Chiamaka is a joint graduate student at Columbia University and the National Institutes of Health through the NIH M.D./Ph.D. Partnership Training program. After completing her doctorate at Columbia, Chiamaka will attend Harvard Medical School.

After her outstanding RCDS career, Chiamaka received her A.B. with high honors in neurobiology from Harvard University. At Harvard's 2010 Commencement, Chiamaka was one of two student speakers (view her speech here).

Rye Country Day is thrilled to welcome Chiamaka to our virtual Graduation ceremony to speak to the Class of 2020 as we honor these impressive graduates for their many accomplishments.
