Breönté is known as "Mr. Stevenson University" for his academic achievements, professional development, campus involvement, and community efforts. “Everyone is extremely supportive of one another and the professors add to that by pushing students to establish themselves as working professionals.”
“The School of Education at Stevenson is unlike any other. As an Early Childhood Education major, I was able to intern in my freshman year, while many other schools do not allow you to work in a school until your junior year. I have worked in two different schools with different age groups. These experiences has really allowed me to see if teaching is the right profession for me.”
