Mary McCall Leland

Mary McCall Leland grew up in rural North Carolina, where she observed first hand the failures and inequities in the American public school system. While in high school, she started her district’s largest extracurricular program to encourage graduation rates by cultivating community and accountability through a cross peer mentoring program. Now, a junior at UNC-Chapel Hill studying Business Administration and Education Policy, she is also an interinstitutional student at Duke University, pursuing a minor in documentary film, as she believes storytelling is an important factor in understanding and improving others’ realities.
