When Harris-Stowe State University President Dwaun Warmack graduated from high school, he had a 1.7 grade-point average and did not think he was college material. Today, Warmack, 42, is one of the youngest presidents of a four-year college in the country.

His journey with Harris-Stowe in St. Louis began in 2014, but come July 31, he will leave the historically black university for Claflin University in South Carolina.

Around the 162-year-old campus in St. Louis, Warmack was known for engaging with his students through social media and schoolwide events, which he credits as one reason why the college has seen a steady increase in enrollment and retention during his presidency. Check out the full story.
