1

Where are you from? Who introduced you to HBCUs?*

I am a native of Terrell, Texas. I grew up during segregation and the only schools that we could attend were Black colleges. I didn’t know them as HBCU’s at that time.

As a high school band member (flutist/piccolo player), I attended all competitions at Black colleges, e.g., Bishop College, Hutson-Tillutson, Prairie View College, and Wiley College.

Why did you choose an HBCU over a pwi?*

As stated above, it was the most logical choice. I am not familiar with the acronym “pwi.”

3

What is the story of your "experience" at Your HBCU given its heralded status as a stellar and prestigious institution?*

Well, the New Paul Quinn is kind of foreign to me. It is no longer located in Waco, Texas and the school’s alma mater song has been changed. However, I am very proud of its accomplishments and will endeavor to support it as much as I can.
