Fellowship helps former student-athlete further his education

The late summers of 2015 and 2016 felt a little different for Stephen Amoah. For the previous eight years, as the start of a new school year loomed, Amoah had spent those weeks outside on a steamy football field, practicing with teammates to compete in high school and college games. Although the academic cycle remains part of his life, for the past two summers, Amoah traded his football uniform for a lab coat over his shirt and jeans.
