Daaiyah Roundtree graduated in May 2014 with an associate degree in Allied Health and is the recipient of the Hill-Charles Award in Mathematics. She is the type of student who makes a classroom livelier and more interesting. Daaiyah is a new type of 'math nerd' – a label she accepts happily – because she is smart and logical, but also very funny and very personable. She breaks the mold when it comes to the traditional excellent math student, and we are thrilled that she is part of our college. She was born to Danita Dixon and Darryl Roundtree, who along with her stepfather Mike Savage, raised and supported her to become the young woman she is today. They taught her to never give up and that words of wisdom are sometimes the hardest to hear. The person who inspired Daaiyah the most was her grandmother. Now that she has graduated from P.I.T., Daaiyah will be working full time, and taking classes to prepare her for nursing school. She is also very happy to be spending more time with her son, watching him grow up. P.I.T. wishes her all the best and we are proud to have helped start her on the way, empowering her to her future success.
