Sydney Montgomery, a graduate of Clarksburg High School who has helped over 7,ooo students with the college and law school admissions process, has been listed in this year’s 30 Under 30 in the social impact category.

Montgomery was the first Clarksburg student to attend Princeton University, where she graduated and moved on to Harvard Law School. She remains a member of the Montgomery County Bar Association, the Women’s Bar Association, and was the Clarksburg HS graduation speaker in 2018. She is also the vice president of the Clarksburg High School Alumni Association and tells us she does what she can to give back locally.

Per Forbes, “According to the American Bar Association, just 8% of law students are Black and 13% are Hispanic. Sydney Montgomery would like to help those numbers grow with Barrier Breakers, a nonprofit she founded that says it has helped more than 7,000 students with the college and law school admissions process. The daughter of a Jamaican immigrant, Montgomery also founded Outline It, writing software for students with learning differences, and co-founded College Equity First, a nonprofit that measures the campus climate for Black students at more than 100 colleges.”
