2022 Champions Student Javoughn Brown-Lewis

Javoughn Brown-Lewis, from Louisville, is in his third and final year of a MSSW and MSCFT dual degree program. Javoughn says he always dreamed of attending the Kent School and studying for his MSSW even prior to his enrollment in undergrad. “At the core of my being is service, community, and youth! It has always been my dream to be a mental health clinician, so an LCSW was the route I chose to take! The MSCFT program had fallen in my lap!
