Charlie Oribamise is a 62-year-old, non-traditional student, studying criminal justice at NHCC. After arriving in the U.S. at age 22, Charlie quickly learned about the racial divide in America. This sparked his interest in racial justice, and eventually, when his kids graduated college, he decided to enroll himself. Charlie’s passion for justice makes him a perfect scholarship recipient.
