In March, the president of Harris Stowe State University, a historically black college in St. Louis, and members of his admissions staff visited Kansas City's Southwest High School to tell students about their college. While they were there, school president Dwaun Warmack took a look at the transcripts of 120 seniors and found three young women to whom he offered admissions on the spot that day. Two of them, Shkenna Collins and Kiz-Juan Sherrell, talk about the experience. Video by Jill Toyoshiba. jtoyoshiba@kcstar.com
