Calago Hipps ’15 began a journey into the field of education first with the education non-profit City Year! His time as an Americorp member inspired him to continue down the path of education. He has been a participant in the teacher preparation program Urban Teachers and has been teaching in Dallas, Texas since 2016. Through Urban Teachers, he became a certified high school English teacher and graduated with an MA from Johns Hopkins University.
Hipps declares, “Beloit taught me the tools necessary to keep fighting for the identities that are in the margins and thanks to this lesson, I’ve decided to dedicate my time to serving the historically underserved communities.”
