Did you know that NMH has been a leader in school inclusivity since it's earliest years? Lydia Keys, a native Cherokee from Oklahoma, graduated with Northfield’s first class in 1884, and in 1885, a Brazilian woman, Innocencia Pratis, became one of the earliest Latinas to attend. At Mount Hermon, Thomas Nelson Baker, Sr., born into slavery, was the first African-American to graduate, in June 1889.
