Making your mark on the world is more than a motto for Delaware State University students. Former Men’s Council Treasurer and SGA Vice President Duncan Harrison Jr. proves that Hornets are destined for greatness. Harrison is now a candidate for councilman at large for Trenton, NJ. Born and raised in Trenton, Harrison has plans to improve the city and quality of life for residents by focusing on issues such as public safety, employment, education, and economic development.
Harrison recalls being a student at DSU as if it was yesterday. Earlier this month, he visited the campus to promote his candidacy and bond with students. He was amazed with the new Martin Luther King Jr. student center and reminisced about campus life. In his eyes, the campus has really progressed. Harrison says that Delaware State helped mold him into the person he is today.
As a student, Harrison joined organizations on campus and became a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. In May 2007, Duncan graduated from DSU with a Bachelor of Arts in sociology with a focus on Criminal Justice. He continued his education at Baruch College, receiving a Master’s in Public Administration.
Today, Harrison empowers new leaders and trains students on both the high school and collegiate level. Throughout his career, Harrison has been recognized for his service to the community as well as professional positions. He formally served as a family assessment worker for Mercer Street Friends, a human care organization that provides solutions to poverty and health problems in Trenton, N.J. Harrison is truly a well-respected individual with a willingness to help and inspire others.
