Destiny Hodges selected as a 2019 HBCU Competitiveness Scholars

Published date: June 17, 2019

The Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) recognized Trojan Destiny Hodges as a 2019 HBCU Competitiveness Scholars. Destiny is one of 20 students from 14 of TMCF’s member-schools selected. Each academic year, the White House Initiative on historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) bestows their highest student recognition on undergraduate, graduate, and professional students from our nation’s 101 HBCUs.

 “Being recognized by the White House as the best of the best from our nation’s HBCUs is a high honor because it shows the world how valuable, creative, intelligent and competitive our HBCU students are,” said Harry L. Williams, TMCF president & CEO. “It is wonderful to see so many Competitiveness Scholars coming from TMCF member-schools. I have no doubt they will represent us well as national ambassadors for HBCU excellence.”

After a rigorous nomination process, the scholars are selected based on their academic and extra-curricular activities. All 44 selected Competitiveness Scholars from the 34 HBCUs are invited to participate at the National HBCU Week Conference, where they will be recognized during a special awards luncheon September 9th.
