Tonya Robinson grew up in Durham, North Carolina.
"The idea of coming to Duke was a huge deal for my family, but also a huge deal for the community" she says. "It really was the institution on the hill, so to see the measure of integration, the way Duke is showing up in the community [today], it is profound."
Tonya now serves on Sanford's board, and is passionate about the school. It is just breathtaking to me to see what Sanford has grown into."
