A pair of Stillman College seniors were picked to the 2023 cohort of the White House HBCU Scholars Initiative.
Ta’Kari Bryant and Jaela Williams are among 101 students from HBCUs across the country chosen for the event. “I had to re-read the email twice,” Bryant said. “I was shocked but super excited. I immediately called my mom to tell her the news.”
Williams is also excited to compete in the HBCU Scholars Initiative. “I’m excited to get there and to network,” Williams said. “Even if I don’t meet the president, just being there and being a part of this program is a step in the right direction. I want to meet the next doctors, politicians – the other students in the cohort.”
