I, Shawnta Darnell Rogers Jr. am writing this appeal because my eligibility status reflects non-qualified for Division 1. Due to false information I was given by my school counselor Mr. Darryall White of Indian Land High School which I attended. I thought I was a qualifier going into my second semester of my senior year. The transcript I was given by my counselor Mr. Darryall White before I began my second semester stated that I had completed my 16 core classes that I needed to be a Division 1 athlete. I was unaware of being a ½ credit short in English. I was told that I had completed my 16 core classes and that I would be placed in 2 electives for the rest of the year which allowed me to leave school at 11:40 a.m. every day. There is no way I would have messed up my chance at becoming a Division 1 Eligible Player after all my years of hard work. I pray you consider my stand on this appeal; I would never do anything intentional to hold myself back. I trusted in my school counselor and now my eligibility status, my scholarship, my future is being put on hold, because I trusted my school counselor was qualified to do his job. I pray you take into consideration I was given false information and understand my position on this matter. George Washington University began recruiting me during my freshman year of high school. I was also being recruited by The University of Georgia, The University of Southern California, Pennsylvania State University, The University of Southern Florida, Duke University, Eastern Carolina University, and Cleveland State University throughout high school, until I committed to George Washington University during the first signing period in November 11, 2015. I was fully aware of the 16 core courses needed for NCAA qualification. However, when I sat down with the counselor, Mr. Darryall White at Indian Land High School, to complete my schedule I made it very clear that my transcript should be looked over to make certain, I would be eligible to graduate and qualified to move on to college and play basketball at a division one university. During the course of the conversation, my mom told Mr. Darryall White, the counselor not to make my schedule until he has my transcript evaluated by the school district and clearing house. We told him to contact us after he is certain about my transcript because I need to be qualified come graduation. He said,” He will get back to us after he checked with the district and clearing house.” A few days later he returned our call and meet with him and he said,” All you need to take is two electives and I get to leave school early each day.” We asked him,” Are you

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
