Palmer Scholar Khyree Named Forbes Under 30 Scholar

In October 2019, Scholar Khyree flew to Detroit for the Forbes Under 30 Scholars Summit. Khyree was selected as an Under 30 Scholar from the University of Washington, where he studies Human-Centered Design and Engineering.

"5 years ago, if you were to tell me I would be nominated and named one of Forbes 30 Under 30 Scholars, I’d look at you with utter disbelief. Yet, here we are and I am extremely honored and proud to be able to share my experience with you all!" Khyree said.

The Forbes Under 30 Summit brings together young leaders to share in learning, discussions, and community building. Past speakers have included Serena Williams, Former President Barrack Obama, Sir Richard Branson, and more.

Khyree especially enjoyed fostering connections with other amazing and intelligent people. "This whole event inspired me to share my experience so I am not the only one from Tacoma to be a Forbes 30 Under 30 Scholar."
