Nashville Ledger Spotlights Tayo Atanda’s Efforts to Help Metro Students Find Path to College

The Nashville Ledger sat down with Olatayo (Tayo) Atanda recently to discuss the impact the young attorney has already had on the community, and their feature on him and his efforts was included on their website today.

Unlike many of his peers, Tayo has a record of involvement with public policy and social justice. While in high school and college, he spearheaded a project that shed light on the low percentage of students from low-income and first-generation immigrant families who pursue college. His report prompted Nashville Public Schools to enact a policy ensuring every student has access to college counseling and preparation.

“. . .I began to survey my peers, and I found out—shockingly—that about 90 percent of them had college aspirations. Yet only about 10 percent were making it to college. I decided to do something about it.”
