Long Beach City College announced that Abimbola Idowu Mitchell is
LBCC’s 2020 Valedictorian. She will address the Class of 2020 at
LBCC’s first virtual Commencement Ceremony at 5 p.m., on Fri.,
June 12 that will stream on the LBCC website.
The Nigerian-born Mitchell moved to Texas at the age of nine. She
found herself living in her car by 2017, but soon discovered a
new love and new life in Long Beach. The 26-year-old became a
kinesiology major at LBCC, keeping a perfect 4.0-grade point
average to qualify for the honor of applying for Valedictorian.
