President Obama’s initiative creates opportunity for scholars
Jonte Myers, 31, has made significant strides while attending Florida Memorial University [FMU]. So much so he has been recognized by the White House, among 75 students from 62 Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Last week, the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities [WHIHBCU] announced its first class of HBCU All-Stars. Myers, a graduate student, learned of the program from a faculty member. “Dr. Riley brought it to my attention and she had already done her part, of filling out the faculty recommendation that was required for the application,” Myers said.
