Living Social Justice
Corttrell Kinney is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at Case Western Reserve University. Today, though, we spent time on the inspiring work Corttrell does outside of the laboratory. As a tutor and mentor, Corttrell builds close relationships with struggling high school students. His success with pulling up youth stems from his ability to connect with students at eye level. Corttrell himself grew up in Cleveland and graduated from John Hay High School. In the second half of the program, Corttrell describes how he takes this passion for educating the community to the business community with a program that helps local businesses keep their employees.
