Three HT Students Named Apple Scholars

A trio of Huston-Tillotson University students have been named as Apple Scholars for the 2021-22 academic year.

Teah Wilson, Tay Harding, and Romario Barrett have earned the distinction for the school year, which began Monday, August 23.

Wilson is a senior computer science major from Pflugerville, Texas. Her goal is to represent more women of color inside the software engineering industry.

Barrett is a junior computer science major from Kingston, Jamaica and seeks to be the first in his family to obtain a bachelor’s degree. His primary goal is to open a technology firm with his brothers upon graduation.

Harding, a senior computer science major from Schertz, Texas, is pursuing a degree in software development and cybersecurity. He has plans to travel abroad and further his passion for learning Japanese language and culture.

Through the Community Education Initiative, managed by The Center for Academic Innovation and Transformation at Huston-Tillotson, this dynamic partnership with Apple, Inc. awards scholarships and co-curricular support focused on increasing diversity efforts in the career fields of computer science, engineering, and mathematics.

The inclusion and diversity initiative directly supports student scholarships in these technical areas and is based on the strength of each candidate’s impact on diversity, demonstrated leadership, financial need, and academic background, including having a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0. The program is open to qualified students who meet the requirements and who identify as part of historically underrepresented groups, including Black / African American, Hispanic / Latinx, American Indian, or Native Hawaiian / Pacific Islanders.
