Arsenio Brown of Huston-Tillotson University Named Tom Joyner Foundation “Hercules Scholar”

(Dallas – July 3) Arsenio Brown, a junior, sociology major from Newark, Calif., this week has been named a Tom Joyner Foundation “Hercules Scholar”.

This honor student and future personal injury attorney plans to have a successful career and support his community.

At HT, Arsenio is president of the Delta chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated, served as Junior Class president, will serve as  Senior Class president in the fall, and still finds time to volunteer at a local school.

Huston-Tillotson University, in Austin, Tex., is the Foundation’s School of the Month for July which is part of its on-going effort to help keep students in historically black colleges and universities. The Hercules Scholarship is named after Joyner’s father, the late Hercules Joyner, who was a strong supporter of higher education. To be a candidate for the scholarship, students must be male, attend a Foundation “School of the Month”, have a grade point average of at least 3.5, and be a campus leader involved in the community with a career goal toward making a difference in the quality of life for his race. The scholars each receive a scholarship grant of $1,500 that is paid directly to their school to help offset their college expenses.
