A native of Morganton, NC, Anthony has served 16 progressive years in higher education with experience in financial aid, admissions, academic advising, tutoring, mentoring and student services.
Over the course of his tenure in Higher Education Anthony was the co-author of four articles in two major national magazines, such as U.S. News and World Report (Education Section) and Next Step Magazine that addresses tips on how to effectively write a Law School Resume, how imperative it is for a Law School Application to reveal personality and demonstrate potential, the importance of a seamless transfer process from Community College to an Undergraduate Institution, and the need for effective Articulation Agreements among 2 year and 4 year Institutions.
In addition to his service in Higher Education, Anthony is also a strong advocate of mental health disparities as he worked in the Mental Health Industry, as a Life Skills Specialist, helping brain injury victims with efficient community integration. Anthony is also an active volunteer at the local Red Cross Center in their Biomedical Department during Blood Drives and a Disaster Responder on the Wake County Disaster Action Team. Anthony also is a member of the North Carolina Central University Campus Garden Advisory Board working to establish and accomplish sustainability for the University through promoting healthy eating. Also, Anthony had the opportunity in 2013 to collaborate with Princeton Review to establish a SAT/ACT prep course for Durham County selected high school students. This community service based program helped those selected students to increase their ACT/ SAT scores and understand various career paths. This one-year program helped four students increase their SAT scores to get the opportunity to attend Carnegie Mellon University and Spelman among the few.
In November of 2013, Anthony became a proud member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. (Delta Zeta Sigma Durham Chapter). He is a past member, as a student at North Carolina Wesleyan College, of Phi Beta Lambda (Business Student Organization).
