Kharnel Swans, LaSalle University

Kharnel Swans of Philadelphia says he has grown tremendously at Church Farm School. Set to attend LaSalle University next year, Kharnel has transformed into a quiet leader. “I have grown a lot during my tenure as a CFS student. The brotherhood that you receive here is real and has allowed me to come out of my shell. Ever since arriving at CFS my freshman year, my vocal and leadership skills have improved. I'm excited to go into the college process.”
Adds his advisors Head of School Ned Sherrill and Director of Student Life Chet Blair, “Kharnel is a good soul, and a kind, generous and decent young man full of love and generosity. He is one of the friendliest, well-liked, respected and morally dependable members of his class. He has a strong inclination toward justice and his natural disposition is to serve the best interests of community even if in quiet, unsung ways. Perhaps this is why he was a constant and joyful fixture in many community service projects throughout his CFS career.
As a member of the Conduct Review Board he compassionately listened to other students who may have exercised poor judgment while balancing community interests in helping the CRB offer recommendations. He has stood up in big moments and led by example, all of which make him a true Brother to his fellow Griffins.”
