Mazyck graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of North Carolina when she was only 19 years old in 2002. In 2005, she became the only African-American to earn a Rhodes Scholarship that year. Before becoming a Rhodes Scholar, Mazyck attended Harvard Graduate School of Education and earned a master’s degree in education policy and management. She has since written about and explored ways to close the achievement gap in American education.
