The Yellowhammer state can be proud of Hernandez Stroud, a Huntsville-native and graduate of the University of Alabama at Birmingham who made Forbes’ 2018 30 Under 30: Law and Policy list.
— He earned a Bachelor of Arts in history and political science, graduating in 2010.
— “Until I graduated from college, no one in my family had done so,” Stroud said in an interview with UAB.
— “My UAB days, without question, helped me realize my passion, which is helping others.”
— After he left UAB, Stroud began teaching in a Philadelphia high school with Teach For America, a nonprofit organization that works to educate and increase opportunities for low-income students.
— Stroud then went to law school at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, where he is now a visiting professor of Law.
— Perhaps most impressive of all, Stroud will soon begin clerking for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit.
