Joseph Reese of Huston-Tillotson University Named Tom Joyner Foundation “Hercules Scholar”

(Dallas – July 10) Joseph Reese, a sophomore, music education major from Somerville, Tex., this week has been named a Tom Joyner Foundation “Hercules Scholar”.

Joseph is an honor student and future teacher who plans to pursue his passion as a recording artist.

At HT, Joseph is a founding member of Men of Valor and Excellence, serves as a section leader for the HT Concert Choir, and mentors at a local community center.

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.
