Terrence J was recently invited to the – The White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans through “Champions of Change” from Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU”s) according to an article by The Buzz. This marked his first presentation at the White House.
Terrence J is a proud graduate of North Carolina A&T. Terrence says in response to Larry King’s question about their being less HBCU’s, “It’s tough because these institutions when they were implemented were to help all people of color. Its really important that we keep them going and keep funding them.”
He goes further to say, “These colleges make-up 3% of colleges but graduate 23% of minorities. It’s really important to keep them going.”
Lastly, he says, “NC A&T’s family environment helped me turn my life around.”
