Alumni Profile - Desiree Raught
When high school teacher Desiree Raught (B.A.’07/A) was approached to sponsor her school’s first Gay-Straight Alliance, she had to remind her students that she wasn’t just “cool with gay people” but that she was “cool with all types of people.” Raught, who teaches English at McKinley Technology High School in Washington, D.C., is not only the founder of GSA but also serves on the citywide LGBTQ Steering Committee to develop initiatives that impact and support all students and faculty in D.C.’s public schools. For her efforts, Raught was named the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network’s national Educator of the Year.
